My Dell Inspiron 8600 has the infamous "(almost) black screen" problem and it looks like the next step is to replace the inverter board. In searching for the part, I find that both LG and Hitachi make inverter boards for the 8600 with the 15.4" screen. I don't know which one to buy. Do I need to replace my inverter board with the same one that is in there now, or will either of the available boards work? If I do need to buy the exact same board, is there a way I can tell what I now have short of taking the screen apart and looking at it? I realize I will have to take it apart to replace the board, but I don't want to do any more monkeying with it than is necessary. I am not a technical person, and I figure every instance of fiddling with the machine is another opportunity for it to break forever. BTW, I thought maybe I could get information about who manufactured the monitor from Settings/System/Hardware and then order the corresponding part, but unfortunately there was nothing there, or at least nothing that I found. Thanks for any help!
