SOURCE: Dell D600 LCD issue
What I've found on two laptops I've worked on in the past two years is that in a case like this, there is a little pin near the power button (or on the strip up near the display) that tells the laptop when the monitor is closed. If that pin gets stuck, the computer will think it's shut all of the time. The sensor is only active in normal mode of windows with the drivers installed (if it's in safe mode or VGA mode the sensor does not work until you raise the resolution. the sensor doesn't work at all if you boot from a knoppix cd.)
You may be able to just flick the pin and get it unstuck, but in some cases you have to remove it all togther.
To remove it, turn the lapotp off. lean the monitor back as far as it can go (don't force it). You then need to carefuly pry up the strip that the power button is on (ussually there is a space you can pry open on the left or right side of the strip depending on the model laptop; be very careful not to break anything). You can then pop it out with a small knife or tweesers and clip the strip back down.
If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then find someone who is.
I hope this helps someone.

I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.
