You are lucky to have an external display! That means that your motherboard nor video card did not fry. Two possibilities here: the ribbon connector from the mobo to the lcd has been disconnected or your cathode tube/exciter is bad. You must have some electronic repair experience and laptops in particular for success here.   Every screw must be remembered as to its original location -lengths vary. ESD precautions must be observed (look that up if you don't know).  Follow the remove/replace procedures for the LCD and do not ever force anything.

 It is not difficult if you organize and use caution. Good luck, Steve Medley

Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector

You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods.
1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor.
2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times.
Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :-
IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7
HP and Compaq = Fn + F4
Toshiba = Fn + F5
ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8

No video appearing on screen of IBM intel celeron model r51e monitor


Attach an external CRT (or LCD) monitor to the VGA-output port,
and reboot the laptop. Does anything show-up on the external screen?

You might have to press "FN + something" to toggle the computer:
* video-output only to internal screen
* video-output only to external screen
* video-output to both screens

to get video-output to the external screen.

Or, take the laptop into a darkened room.
Now, do you see anything at all, even faintly,
i.e., your normal "desktop-icons" and "wallpaper" ?
If so, then the "video-inverter" part of your LCD screen has failed.
It's about a $20 part, but you should add $60, for one hour of labour
by a qualified technician, to disassemble your computer, replace the bad part, reassemble and test.

"z" light comes on, then battery charge indicator -Doesn't start!


Hi,
If there no indicator of power on the laptop , There could be two problems either the AC adapater is bad or the motherboard connector pin or board is faulty.
If you see power light activity , but the screen is blank. try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. Press the Fn+ F8 key to toggle the screen to the external display. If you see the display on the external screen then the LCD is bad . Otherwise its your video card.
