Cable change needs you have to Pull the Bulb or CCFL from the bottome of the screen internal.. What size screen? Some are easy some are not. Also if you have not diagnosed try inverter first. Many make this assumption and are wrong initially.

Good luck!

Turning off keyboard backlight

First of all, did they worked before?
If yes, then it means your Alienware maybe went into a power saving mode because the adapter you're using doesn't provide enough energy.
If the lights didn't worked before, then you should install all the necessary drivers and the Alienware OSD Application and Alienware Command Center.
If you have all the applications and drivers installed, then you should configure the lights in the Alienware Command Center.
Here are the official links for drivers and resources:

My Alienware M11X R2's screen broke completely off. I thought I could just hook up an HDMI cable and use the base with a monitor but it keeps beeping... and the video wont show up on the monitor.

Do you mean that the hinges broke and the screen is no longer attached to the laptop. I googled ' Alienware M11X R2 screen' and one of the first results is a story from PC World which contains:

"Dell will repair broken hinges on any Alienware M11x system for any R1 or R2 customer worldwide regardless of warranty status," wrote Dell's John Blain, in a blog entry on the company's website.

Laptop screen will not light up

It sounds like the inverter for the backlight has died.
They are about $100, unless you shop eBay. I just found one for my sister's AlienWare D9T for $36 with shipping.
The little rubber buttons around the screen must come off, they are just stuck on with sticky-stuff, but they are tenacious. Underneath there are small philips-head screws, you'll need to get a small set if you haven't already.
Then after the screws are out around the bezel (that's what the plastic around the screen is called) you'll have to carefully pop it off. There are several tabs around the edges, be careful not to break the tabs or the bezel. Be patient.
At the bottom of the screen, there is a narrow board with LEDs and buttons on it, and the large lump is the transformer used in the inverter to create the high-voltage AC required by the backlight tubes. There will be one or two small philips-head screws holding it in.
That is the board you'll need to replace. A big, big caution: on my sister's AlienWare, the connectors on the cables are really horrible. The plastic is crumbling, they are -very- difficult to remove without falling apart. If you break them, it is a -lot- more complex replacing those cables. Once you have to open the main part of a laptop, it starts reminding me of the puzzlebox in "Hellraiser".
