Hello,
If you are getting a display in the external monitor then try replacing the backlight bulb or inverter
Yes if you are careful then you can do it by downloading the manual from the dell site. But if you closely
look at the screen you may see the fainted image if the inverter or the backlight bulb is almost at the ending
stage. All you have to do is just remove the inverter from your laptop, note down its number and search for a new inverter using that number in ebay. If its backlight bulb problem then you should be careful while replacing as its a delicate one.
But inverter boards fail more often than backlight bulb. But after replacing the inverter if you found its the backlight bulb then you could have wasted your money in buying the inverter. I would suggest you let the service guy do it for you. They will check if its a backlight bulb or the inverter by connecting another screen
to your laptop inverter.
Good Luck
