    There are a lot of variables in that. Is your system having a specific problem? I do a lot of laptop repair, and its been my experience that most issues with laptops have to do with components /other/ than the motherboard. Please send me more info!

Okay. somewhere on the back or side of your laptop should be a standard VGA connector. Plug a regular computer screen in to that connector, turn the screen on, and start up your laptop. On your laptop's keyboard, in the lower left hand corner, should be a Function key, probably labeled 'Fn'; On one of the number keys along the top of the keyboard should be the Display Toggle, a key with two computer screen icons. Hold the Function key, and press the Display Toggle key - This should switch between the laptop's LCD and the computer monitor. If nothing comes up on the monitor, make sure the monitor is connected and on, that the laptop is on, and press the two keys two or three more times.

If nothing displays on either screen, either you have a bad memory stick, a bad hard drive, or, at worst, a bad motherboard(cheapest repair being memory, most expensive is the motherboard.)

If there is no display on the laptop's LCD, but the regular computer monitor shows your normal startup/windows screens, that tells you that either the LCD Inverter board is bad, or the LCD itsself is bad.

Hope this helps ya!

? dell monitor to compac ?

Since you didn't post the Model of the Compac, All I can give you is some general information.

1st, does the monitor work on another system? (Is it a known good monitor?)

If it works on another system, then the issue is with the system, or the connection to the system.

Check the connection to the system (Some systems have both on-board and expansion video cards, if the system has an expansion card the on-board video is usually disabled)

Make sure the cable is correctly connected to both the system and the monitor and no pins are bent.

If the monitor has not been tested, then try connecting it to a system you know that works.
