Re: found a lap top :)
plug in the VGA and right click anything.
sometimes this will flick it on.
anyway, other thing, hit the back of the laptop, if this don't work, then simply go down to the hardware store, buy a shiny hammer, take it down with the laptop, 1v1 just you and the laptop, then this should teach it not to f**k with you when it comes to screens. Then buy a new laptop and if it appears to come out the same repeat what i said and do that hammer thing, its jolly good fun
