Dropped laptop

Hi, my laptop was dropped and now the display is not working. the display backlight appears to be ok and was told that the inverter may have gone. the computer works fine through an external display. any suggestions for a possible fix or repair before i get screwed by dell?
thanks for your help

Oops, sound like a nasty accident.

Try click here , they may be able to repair or replace any damaged components. They've got plenty of expertise with Dell kit, and hold stock of the spares too.

I hope you get your problems sorted.

Are you aware that home contents insurance can cover this damage?

Thanks for your suggestions. after looking at a few websites i took the display apart and found that the display adapter cable had come loose. pushed it back in and it works!!! going to put the lottery on and hope my good fortune lasts a bit longer!
