Default Screen issue from dropping the laptop - 11-20-2009, 03:52 AM


I dropped my Dell Mini 9 a while ago and the screen is ****ed. When I boot up, there is nothing on the screen except a small white line on top. Sometimes if I'm lucky, the screen works but the image is distorted as following:

Sometimes it could be worst.

Here is a small clip of how bad it can be (besides just blank out).

So, anyhow, I'm thinking about getting a screen replacement for it. But I'm not sure if the problem is with the screen Inverter or the LCD screen itself. I cannot find any information about the screen inverter in this unit. There is a small board behind the LCD screen. Is it the one?

I'm looking to get something along this line from ebay:
Dell 910 mini 9 LCD Screen 8.9" Laptop Display Panel - eBay (item 140334848683 end time Dec-18-09 19:57:34 PST)

But the mention it does not come with inverter. I'm not sure if it's a generic ads, or else.
Anyone has experience with replacing the screen, please help.

My mini has been laying around for 2 months and I can't find a fix for it yet.
