    I am hoping some other IT Pros can help me I am stumped.
    Customer brought in a notebook, all MSI parts MSI built says screen
    will not come on. They were using it and the screen got progressively
    darker till now nothing shows up on it. I turn the computer on and I
    hear the POST but I cannot get anything on the screen. I was pretty
    sure it was the power inverter in the screen so I put a new one in and
    it did not change a thing.
    my next thought is maybe the bulbs went out, and on that note order a
    new screen and call it a day.
    Any ideas to what is the problem?

    Sounds like the backlight is out. I replaced a lot of those (mostly Sony Vaios). They cost about
    $10.
