Hi. I have an almost 4 yr old Z61t that just stopped working last night. I can see a faint image on the screen, but there appears to be no backlight. It seems the likely failures are the backlight, the inverter, the cable, or a mainboard fuse. I'm looking for how to easiest/cheapest/fastest to determine which is the true culprit, rather than just replace components willy/nilly...
Any ideas how to narrow down the possibilities?
I had closed the cover as I thought I was done for a while... a while later I reopened to continue working, and the backlight wouldn't come up. Was plugged into AC with full battery charge at the time.

Hi glaufman and welcome to the Community,
Here's a pretty good guideline.
