Usually the screen light is used by removing some of the foil from the back of the screen.

There was some foil and foam tape protecting the back of the lcd screen that I had to remove. However, if you look at the bottom right corner of the Apple you can see a black rectangle, I believe there is a chip in the lcd at that spot that is blocking some of the light. So if you try this mod I suggest cutting the hole for the Apple about a 1/4 inch higher than the bottom of where the Dell logo is now.
