Hi Guys,

My Compaq Presario R3000 laptop screen has gone funny. The back light wont come on properly, It comes on then flickers. I've have the fonrt off and found out that the power inverter board is buzzing and sparking, is this the source of the problem? Its just that if I replace the screen its going to cost loads and this inverter thingy is cheaper. Its out of warrenty and defenitly the screen not the graphics.

Lots of love

It may be the power inverter for the fluorescent backlight or it may be the fluorescent bulb itself. Probably worth replacing the inverter board first, then the bulb if that doesn't work.
