Specs: Windows XP
My internal monitor was going bad, I used an external display. This was yesterday. I have a new screen now but the laptop only works on the external screen, even with the external unplugged and a re-boot. Even though the original screen is bad it still had power, I replugged it to to eliminate that the new screen was bad. It does not power either. The fn F4 does nothing but re-boot the external screen (when the external is plugged in and does nothing with it unplugged.

Is this a simple fix, to switch to internal or something.

Doesn't make sense that there was power to the screen yesterday and now none. The only thing I did was hook up an external monitor?

Thanks in advance

One of a few ideas. One is you borked the install somehow. Don't get mad we all do it.

Other is the part is bad.

Might be that it is wrong part.

Might be a bios setting that somehow changed.

Might be it wasn't the lcd but the video adapter.

It was the darn ribbon connector, even though I had messed with it, it was indeed not seated correctly. I did learn that even with the power pins connected, the screen seem powerless till that ribbon is seated proper.

Thanks so much for the reply
