Default Laptop LCD not working

I have this laptop thats around 2 years old. Its a P3 1000 mhz KDS laptop. Its been working fine lately untill one day I turned it on and the monitor didnt show up. The laptop turns on but nothing on the screen comes up. If I keep trying and restarting it it sometimes comes up. I also hooked it up to a monitor to see if it would work and it didnt. Does anyone know if I can fix this or what is causing this?

It sounds like it's more than the LCD if you connected it to a monitor and it didn't work...

Get it down to your computer shop or manufacturer and get it taken apart. It sounds like something is broken more than a software issue

You're probably going to need a new motherboard since I'm pretty sure the laptop has onboard video. Since there is no image when connecting to an external monitor, I am led to believe that the issue is not with the LCD screen or inverter board.

Doubt he needs a new motherboard. More commonly on these old laptops, the assembly responsible for the LCD fails, and while it's better than the motherboard failing, it's not cheap to replace in a lot of cases. You can still sell the laptop online, but mention the problem with the screen. Obviously won't get as much for it. There's a big market for parts laptops.

If you get video while connecting it to an external monitor, it's not the motherboard - look at getting a replacement inverter, or even an LCD power module.

Yeah, if you read his post you'll see that he wasn't getting any image when plugged into an external monitor...
