suddenly yesterday my monitor blacks out. If I touch the little switch (that logs you off the computer if you close the lid) it comes back on but only for a minute or so. After hitting the little rubber switch 4 or 5 times it just shuts down.
I attached another monitor and it works fine.
Do you think it is my monitor on the lap top that is gone? the lap top monitor letters are now soft (fuzzy) around the edges and the color is different.
I am in mexico and can't really find another computer unless I travel to PV.

I would try adjusting all the display settings in your OS, if you haven't already. But, if you have attached another monitor and it looks fine, it is most likely that the laptop display is failing. If you are comfortable you can take it apart and make sure that the connector to the motherboard is secure. Sometimes I have found with the laptop displays the connector or wire needs adjusted.
