Ok, so it's a laptop. You try to boot it up, the top half of the screen is dark grey, lower a light grey. I reseated the LCD connection to the motherboard, and that didn't help. The VGA out seems to work fine on an external monitor. So, we're not dealing with a bulb, doesn't seem like the graphics card is bad, so I gotta imagine the LCD is bad? Seems logical.

I just don't want to have a bunch of money spent on an LCD screen, if it could be something else. Maybe someone has had this exact problem?

Thanks,

Troy

it's the LCD
get a new one vga out working clears the video card
i repair and have changed laptop screens a few times
however, if the lcd has an external inverter,
you might want to try switching that 1st
if no joy, it's a new lcd you'll have to pony up for

He he, novel material eh? I'll get right to work on that novel.


Yeah, I'm leaning toward the LCD screen, but I may try a working LCD screen from an existing laptop, to see if a picture comes up, before I order.

it might not be the lcd. Check the connection, see if dust or any thing got in the way of the ribbon wire connection. While the ribbon wire is plugged up and the computer is on play with the ribbon wire to see if the wire isindie of it broke.
