I have in my garage one 15.4inch wide screen LCD with the LCD broken, but it appears to have EL film, I cant see it having backlights but I cant tell at the mo. Before I go pulling it open, which is it likely to have, its a Toshiba Satelite Pro A120 machine.

I searched a nice amt.
Couldn't find anything on the backlight of it.

I would just pop it open.

Laptops only take like one sec.

My guess would also be CCFL tubes, my old laptops backlight array is about 5-6mm thick with slab and all and thats a CCFL.
But yeah, tear it apart and post pics! Cheesy
