    Dear All,

    I have a DELL Latitude C800 laptop which is about 4 years old. Recently
    its LCD has started giving problmes. Sometimes jumping black lines
    appear on the screen. Then the LCD went totally dead and stayed like
    that for four days. Today it has started again and is apparantly
    working fine. The casing of LCD has a small crack outside however the
    techncians have told me that that there is no physical damage to LCD.
    What might be the problem?

  2. I had the same symptom last year and I tried to change the connections
    and connector to the LCD but neither helped. Ended up having a new
    LCD installed. Fortunately, it's a company machine, so I didn't have
    to pay for the job.

    BTW, it's still working fine.

    Could be the LCD or the Inverter. Most likely the LCD.
