  • Forum Reply: RE: Inspiron N5110 1R screen stays black

    Hi, Sorry for the delay in replying; I was awaiting the part (cable) from Dell to arrive in the mail. I replaced the cable but the problem persists. Is the problem likely to be the display cable then? According to Dell, the motherboard is the problem. Is this another possibility? Thanks
