The laptop starts with a blue screen that slowly fades to black and then i hear the Windows sound. So how could i determine if its the inverter, the panel or the GPU?
So far i tried to connect the laptop to my computer monitor through the VGA port and restarted it, but nothing happened.
Then I tried to boot the laptop in Linux, but there is no way to alter the boot sequence since the screen doesn't work.
I also tried to see the see the desktop in the screen with a strong LED flashlight, but I couldn't see anything; does this mean it is not the inverter?
Any clues? The laptop is a Compal IF-92 with a nVidia GeForce 8600GT
