The lcd screen went dark so I installed a new lcd with the invertor. When I booted up the laptop it still has the same problem. It runs fine with a remote screen plugged in. I ran the internal diagnostics and came up with code 1000-0322 unable to access invertor.  I am now thinking it may be the lcd cable but I don't want to just keep adding more new parts till I get some info on this code. Any help would be appreciated.

you might have to replace the backlight... after doing some google searching this seems to be the fix.. very tedious job by the sound... might want to get an expert to do so.

The screen and inverter are new. I replaced the origional screen and inverter when this problem first started.

The origional screen went dark like the backlite had burned out. I didn't want to open up the lcd and change the light so I bought a new screen and inverter instead. The screen is working I can just make out what is on the screen or if I shine a light on it I can see the display.  After I installed the new screen and it was still dark I plugged in a remote monitor and it worked fine. I then ran the internal diagnostics and came up with the code 1000-0322 not reading inverter.

>>  remote monitor and it worked fine  <<  then the video seems ok
this still can be the cause :  >>  unable to access invertor<<  can be a bad inverter also; can you have it exchanged ?
