If the screen is damaged, then no there nothing you can do without replacing the screen BUT then is it really damaged? I would try and see if a normal image is displayed on an external display via the laptops VGA port and cable. If good than it is most likely the screen BUT I would look into (By pulling the screen covers off, etc to see if all cables from the System board to the screen is connected properly, if they are and also same image is on the external screen then the graphics chip is the culprit...depends on how hard and at what angle etc did the Laptop hit the foot-board.

Dell Laptops (Has power no display issues)

1. Immediately run PSA. (Make sure laptop is connected to AC Adapter. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the Fn key then press power button once).

2. Just wait for about 3 to 5 minutes then you might will hear beeping sounds (no display with beeping sounds) this means that laptop is working fine but no display. This might cause by either the video card or LCD.

3. After hearing beeps turn off laptop. (Press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds)

4. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the D key then press power button once. If full screen colors appears this means LCD is working fine and the problem is the video card. If no display from the LCD no colors were displayed try the test again just to make sure. If still the same no full screen colors then the problem is the LCD.

Hook a spare monitor to the video output of the laptop, if picture okay! the LCD panel display is defective and most be replaced. But if symptom is the same on both screens it indicates a bad Video Graphic Card normally built into the motherboard.

The issue seems to be due to defective video card on the notebook. Connect and external monitor to the PC and check if it works fine or not. You can follow the steps listed below to connect an external monitor.

1. Turn off the notebook.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the external monitor to the monitor port on the rear/side of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

At this time, please follow the instructions mentioned below for switching the display to the external monitor:

The notebook's video card supports three modes. Built-in screen only; external video only; and both on simultaneously (mirrored). If you're not seeing the image on the desired device(s), the notebook's video card is probably in another mode. Press FN + F4 to cycle through the display options: Notebook display, External monitor, both.

If you press FN + F4 once, the external monitor will display & there will be no Notebook LCD display.
If you press FN + F4 twice, the external monitor will display & there will be some shading on the Notebook LCD.
If you press FN + F4 thrice, both Notebook LCD & external monitor will display.

If the issue persists on the external monitor, then this could be due to defective video card on the notebook. However, if the display on the external monitor is fine, then the issue is with the LCD display panel of the notebook. In either cases, the notebook requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

If your PC is under warranty, contact HP to get available options to get the notebook repaired under warranty.

Laptop Monitor shows balck and white stripes


From what i can barely see it your photo it looks like your video chip  (which is part of the motherboard's chipset) has died. It will be expensive to replace the motherboard.
To recover all your data is easy - just remove the hard disk from the laptop, put it in a case like one of these

then connect the case to another pc.

Most Definately a Hardware problem...your laptop is not capable of running the refresh rates that the game requires, Because your Display Panel is Going bad..This is the screen that attaches to the Backlight.. it is connected to a Long Circuit Board.. The Board is the part that is going bad..
I would first check the Display Cable.. it connects to the circuit board i just described.. see if has come loose.. push into place & secure..

No DISPLAY ON THE SCREEN


If the external display works fine then the most common fault is the Inverter board for the LCD. By having the external display function properly, the video signal from the video graphics card is working.

The other fault could be, but generally isn't, the TAB welds on the LCD. Usually when these go a portion of the display will be lost first or discoloration e.g. red/white/or black stripe appears.

I generally don't include the CCFL (Cold Cathode Florescent Lamps) as a fault as the inverter is what supplies the voltage to the lamps.
