    Hello folks, new to the thread/website if this has an existing thread link me please

    I recently picked up a Alienware 18(2013) R1/Viking whatever its refered as. i purched it dirt cheap with the goal of repairing it to put it side by my 17 R1(Ranger)

    I encounted a few issues one being the screen and i think its the display backlight control. When the laptop boots all the lights turn on no error beeps, i can initiate the display test but the screen is still black. Holding a flashlight to the display you faintly see the test taking place.

    My thing now is should i just replace the whole top assembly or just the cover with display backlight circuitry or is it in fact the screen.

    Check cable first, screen and if the motherboard outputs backlit voltage.
