Dell Inspiron 1525 LCD display Black


Nov 11, 2016
I am trying to fix a dell Inspiron 1525 but have run into a snag. The laptop turns on but the display is black throughout the whole booting process. Here is the troubleshooting I have done so far.
Connected it to an external monitor and nothing happened.
Tried removing 1 Ram stick and booted up and screen is still black.
Tried power cycling and screen still black.
Readjusted the LCD cable that is running from the LCD to the motherboard and still black screen.

Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
