My name is Armymason. Try plugging in an external monitor again and on the laptop look on the keyboard for the key to switch between monitors. On my board its the F4 key while holding the FN key down. If that doesn't work it is most likely the video card has failed and its not replaceable because the card is attached to the board. I would have said the monitor is bad but you should still be able to use an external monitor.
