It`s not the inverter, probably the backlight.

ok thanx is this part of the lcd or separate

Separate item. Looks like a miniature fluorescent tube. Have a look on e-bay like click here but I`m sure you can source in the UK.

It is no simple matter to replace the LCD backlight, your best solutions may be to buy a replacement LCD panel or a complete working top section with the same size screen as yours for the IBM T20,21,22,or 23 will all fit, shop around on e-bay for the best deal and pay by pay pal for best buyer protection

You can download service manuals from the lenovo site
