Default Laptop Monitor

Hey all,

Jus wondering. If a laptop monitor doesn't work does it mean that the motherboard is messed up?

The computer turns on, but the monitor is just black..

Any ideas on that?

It could be anything, If the screen stops working it could be a broken cable or even the motherboard.

When you say the screen is black, does it mean that it is off or do you see the mouse in the center of the screen/

The first thing I would do is to get a monitor and plug the laptop into the monitor and see if that works. If it does that means is narrows it down to the screen. Though connection from the motherboard to screen could have come loose.
