connect an external monitor to the laptop, press the FN and the F7 key to switch between monitors.

Does the display show?

There are several, unappealing answers. The backlight on the display is burned out. The videocard on the motherboard is dead. The cable connecting the display to motherboard is damaged.

When you boot, do you get anyting at all on the monitor?

I agree with Gerry here. All the answers to your question are very depressing in the pocket book. It's definately related to the connection between your motherboard and monitor. It's one of a few things.

1. Bad motherboard (laptop motherboards run around 350-500 dollars US currency)
2. Bad CPU (around the same price for laptops unless you look on Ebay)
3. Bad onboard video, but in the case of a laptop...thats not a fixable problem without serious metal work IE:soddering and dangerous work
4. Bad memory.....which is a long shot, but you never know....try changing out the memory.
