Acer Aspire 8730G: one backlight or two

Growley Member Posts: 1

I'm looking for information on my laptop, an Acer Aspire 8730G.  I'm trying to determine if the laptop screen takes two backlights or one.  Apprently, both were used in this build.  I'm hoping to get away cheap with a light replacement, rather than the whole screen.

    Most of the time it's going to be the inverter which is pretty easy to change.If you remove the screws in thebezel and tilt the screen back as far as it goes, you may be able to get the bezel off without having to disassemble the whole laptop.I believe there are three screws across the top and two in the bottom corners.

    Since you have to open it regardless, take out the old one and see if it's single or double.
