There are disputes regarding this. It depends if the size of the monitor is the same, and if the board supports the monitor connection. I see that you replied to your own question, may I inquire whether it worked or not?

Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board. The
LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card
to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen
inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for
the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low
voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp
First try this, right click on the desktop, click properties, open the screen saver tab, click the power button, then change the screen settings to never. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid it's a hardware issue. Check the screen connections, connection to the back of the screen, screen to inverter, and screen to motherboard (under the keyboard), sometimes the connectors can work loose. If the connections are good, then the issue may lie with the inverter or screen itself. More than likely an intermittent problem with the inverter.
I dropped my laptop and screen was verry hard to see unless u shined a bright light at it. the inverter just under the lcd screen happened to come unpluged. I dont know if i was just lucky or if this has happened to more people. I hope this helps some one else.
I've got one with the same problem. I've been through the model at Lenovo's site, and your best bet is to replace the lcd with what it came with. It's possible an sxga would plug in (there are always extra pins on the motherboard side), but probably wouldn't work. The cable is almost as much as the lcd.
