Dell 500m inverter board
Are there any part number markings on the Inverter board itself?
It's possible that DELL may use the same inverter board for different laptop models... Having the EXACT part number of the board itself may lead to a source...
If You're Unsure, "RTFM"... If You're SURE, "RTFM" Anyway.
It's an Ambit board, Rev 2, J071063.01
Nope, Dell pretty much mixes all Ambit products around in a big pile, puts a blindfold on and chooses another one for a different laptop line. 500M/600M/D500/D600 are all pretty much the same product though, so they probably all share this same part. Either Ambit makes a pretty shitty board or all different LCD's fall prey to the Dell touch of death; drop dead right after warranty expires!
I guess the only place I can get the part is from Dell; I called up 247laptoplcd and a lady said she may order the display assembly from a purchaser... who probably will get it from Dell... the only discount would be I probably don't need the LCD assembly. yay? :/
Wonder how much I can part out the laptop for..
