Default Dell Latitude D800 Screen Fix

A while back, maybe a year or two if it matters, my dad gave me like 3 Latitude D505, and a D800. They are the same computers, except the 800 has a larger screen. Unfortunately, the D800 was droped by...whoever the previous owner was at his office. Anyways, i know they are old and all, but i cant afford a new laptop that will meet my expectations, so im stuck with these.

I want to know if there is anyway i could try and fix the screen. Its simply does not work, no Pixelation, greyed pixels, whatever. Just nothing. If i was to take it apart(i have more then enough ability), is there anything i could look for. Because it kinda seems like something got disconnected, or whatever.

You can try reseating various parts.

Dells documentation on the display assembly is here;

The complete service manual for the computer (All parts) is here:
