Screen is almost dark, I can barely see anthing. External monitor works fine.
I searched previous post and found out 3 possibilities: inverter, backlight, or motherboard.
However, one additional thing is that all icons (power, battery, harddisk, etc) underneath the screen are not illuminated, except the very left one (should be wireless).
Can somebody kindly help me to diagnose that which part cause this issue, inverter, backlight, or motherboard?
Thank you in advance!

Thank you, Richk.
It is CCFL, and yes it blew when the laptop got "not responding" on accessing external hard drive (and I couldn't kill that process).
But how to tell if the fuses are blown or not after I unscrew the monitor? You mean I will need a new motherboard If the fuses are blown (because fuses are not replaceable)?
