I would suggest having a professional take it apart and repair it for you, as laptops are not nearly as easy to disassemble and reassemble as desktops. But if you decide to do it yourself, I'm sure you can locate a service manual by searching in Google.

You are braver than most....LOL My mother used to say curiosity killed the cat... but satisfaction brought him back.
I think the covering you are talking about is probably tape wrap, you can remove it, but I dont' actually expect you to find anything. Typically if a wire is damaged it will either be obvious, as in a severe pinch mark where it bends, or the insulation will be damaged as well, or.... it will not show any obvious signs of damage, this is not very likely.
I may be that your connection could be damaged where it's soldered on or in one of the connectors at either end.
If the replacement isn't too costly this might solve the problem or lead you to the solution. I don't typically recommend part swapping as it can get expensive fast, but if a $10 part might solve the problem, by all means give it a whirl.
If it were your graphics chip, then plugging it into a monitor should yield the same results. As the same graphics chip that drives the laptop screen also drives the external monitor when you plug it in. So that pretty much eliminates the graphics chip.
NO, heating will not solve anything, and I don't know where they come up with this idea, but please don't go heating things... that's just crazy... Sometimes people should have their keyboards disabled for some of the stuff they suggest on the internet...LOL
That's how we learn.... you think you got questions, you should see some of the posts I've driven my instructors to pulling their hair out with it....
The fact that you can run on an external monitor indicates the cable/connection, or the backlight, or the screen itself. The white screen kind of leaves me believing it's not the backlight. But the other two are open to suggestions.... I would suggest possibly getting a price to replace the connecting harness for the screen, if that's not to expensive it won't hurt to try it. If that doesn't work, I wouldn't suggest buying a screen unless you could get one for reduced price on a parted out laptop.
YOu said you can plug external in and it works, have you tried this once it white screens? I'd like to make sure it's not just coincidence when you use the external and that you can still see the image on external when the white screen appears.

It could very well be your touchpad, even though you are 2 finger typing, the sensitivy could have gone haywire and it's picking up your key taps....
I would disable the touchpad, and plug in a wireless mouse, test it using that for a few days, and if that seems to fix it, just stay with the wireless mouse. I always disable a touchpad and use a wireless mouse on all laptops, as they don't like my body chemistry. I'm partial to the MS minimouse 3000. They work great and are not hard on batteries.
If this does not solve the problem, it's possible that you can replace the keyboard, which could also be wearing out. These are usually in the $25 range.
