Folks,
I've got an old computer that I'd like to save. About two years ago, my then 8 year-old Dell Inspiron 1100 decided it wouldn't show video on the build in screen anymore. I can use it on an external monitor all day long, but that doesn't make it very portable. I did some checking and finally opened it up yesterday. I checked the lcd ribbon connection and the display worked again, for about four minutes then went black again. The hdd continues running the program you just can't see anything on the screen. After playing with it for an hour, it got to the point where the display worked for about 30 seconds before it went black. The display seems to work very well. I'm wondering if it's the lcd ribbon cable, inverter, or what. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I suggest you not to experiment with your machine at own because some time it leads to some different problems also...better you contact to manufacturer that is Dell they will give you the better solution for this... cause this seems to be the problem with your lcd ribbon so that might needs to be change...
