    Ebay would be your best bet at a screen. They have them fairly inexpensive, then ask around town and shop for a computer repair place that might be hurting for business and give you a deal. I charge 25 bucks for the labor charge in changing screens. Then you have to factor in th price of the screen which shouldn't be over 100 bucks.

Laptop screen blank all white

Either your LCD Video Cable is not plugged in snuggly or the monitor is slowly going bad. The fact that you can see the images on an external monitors says your Video Graphics Card is working fine. You'll need to disassemble the laptop to get to the cables. Get a quote from your local computer shops, then try the guys at: Most times they will fix it and ship it back by Fedex or UPS cheaper than any quote you obtained including the shipping.

FS050UA , COMPAQ PRESARIO NOTEBOOK PC CQ50-210US the screen has lines and a black spot

Turn on the notebook and press F10 to get into BIOS screen. Even if the lines and the black spot appears then the issue is with the internal hardware of the notebook.
To check further connect an external monitor to the notebook and press Fn and F4 keys on the keyboard to get the display on external monitor. If the external monitor display is fine then the issue is with the LCD screen or else the issue is with the Video card of the notebook.
