If so then your problem is a bad lcd...Nojoy
If this is indeed the case you would need to take it to a shop(make sure you backup all your data before)
If they indeed determine the lcs is bad then you have two options.
Replace the screen (not very cost effective)
Buy a new laptop
The second option would allot you to then purchase a external enclosure for your hd in the present system and have it for a second drive for your new laptop.
We can help with finding the external enclosure if you decide to go this route.

I DID TRY TO HOOK UP MY LAPTOP TO A WORKING MONITOR, BUT I AM SUCH A DUMMIE WITH COMPUTERS I AM NOT EVEN SURE I DID IT RIGHT. I DID UNLOCK MY MONITOR PLUG AND PLUGGED IT INTO THE BACK OF MY LAPTOP. HOW DO I MAKE SURE THE MONITOR IS STILL ON WHEN I UNPLUGGED IT?
If the monitor is plugged into power and the video cable is plugged into your laptop then you should just have to turn on laptop.
When you do this the LCD will be disabled and the external monitor should show the video now.
BTW I have closed the other topic. Please respond in this topic as it will make it easier to help and to follow along with the topic.
