need help with this acer 8920g the screen goes blank after a couple of minutes on so i replace the inverter that i bought in ebay for $11 it work for a couple of days then died i got a replacement now this one if the laptop is plug in the charger and i turn it on it will work great. but if i turn it off and unplug from charger and turn it on only on battery it will work ok for a couple minutes then screen goes blank you can still see the picture in the back if you flash a light on the screen, no matter how many times i reboot it will start ok then screen goes blank. so since i bought this for so cheap i bought another inverter from ebay used in good working conditions, i install it then turn laptop on and blank screen you can still see the picture if you flash a light on the screen. my question, ?is it possible that all three inverters are defective or is there something else wrong with my acer 8920g?

While it is possible that you have received 3 bad inverters, it is unlikely. The bulb on the inside of the screen itself could be failing. If the bulb is bad/failing, the screen will need to be replaced. A decent computer repair shop will be able to tell you the problem is with 1) The inverter, 2) The backllight/screen, or 3) The motherboard.

Well, you've gone this far with it... Here's a nifty tool and the price is right...

This allows you to bypass the inverter, and plug in the bulb directly to confirm that the bulb is bad.
