Not sure of your exact model but lots of Sony notebooks use the keys Fn+F7 to toggle the display between the computer screen (LCD), a connected external display, and both the LCD and an external display.

Also if you replaced the LCD screen on the laptop make sure all the connection are seated properly between the screen and the motherboard.

Hope that helps

when you attach it to an external screen, go to control panel, display, and then try to unable both screens through this. I recommend this first so that if there is something wrong with the laptop screen, you aren't stuck with a blank screen and no external monitor attachment. If this does not work, then there is something wrong with the laptop screen, most likely connection wise. If it does show up on the laptop, then you can switch it to lcd display only and safely remove the external monitor. Good luck
