    Sounds like the inverter is dead, but if you want it fixed by Acer they'll want to swap out the entire screen. If it's going to cost too much for what the machine's worth, it's time for a new one. If the old laptop's got a HD15 screen output on it though, it'll still serve admirably as a web server or router/firewall or some such thing. Grab a Linux boot cd and you could run the whole thing on that; rip out the laptop hard drive and sell it on ebay or (better) wack it in a 2.5" enclosure as a usb portable drive.

    Sorted

    First mistake... ACER... lol just kidding...

    Yes sounds like the flouro. Did all of you boys and girls know that LCD screens are lit by flouro tubes in the side panels?

    I do not think its a replacable part. Last I heard all LCDs were repair by replacement (the whole LCD).

    Yup, sounds like the backlight. These are usually cold cathode flourescent lights. I have no idea about what type, and how easy they are to replace.
