Hi, since you connected a "Output Device" a [TV] to your Computer, its become another Monitor; so the Computer is trying to identify another Monitor being connected. This is what you need to do; (right click) on a [empty] area of the Desktop Screen, in the "shortcut" window, select the "Personalize," in the next window which should be the [Personalize and appearance...], select the "Display" applet, and open to the Display Setting window. Now since your "Primary Monitor is the Laptop, the "Secondary Monitor" will be the TV [ Monitor 2], click on the Identify Monitors. Next, once the Computer recognize the TV, click on the "Apply and OK buttons. Note: You may be required to "Restart the Computer for the effect to take properly." If all goes well; give the solution a "Helpful Rating," thanks.
when switching on te laptop, does it make noises, does the fan run, the CD/DVD-drive LED shows green light and the harddisk rattle little bit? - good for you if it does, as the system still boots up !
to check if the LCD screen is broke and not the graphics card malfunctioning:
hook it up to an external monitor (one usually used with desktop PCs) when laptop is switched off, using the 3-pin input in the back or to the right side of your laptop, and make sure the external monitor's power cord is properly fused...
Now switch on the external monitor first and then your machine again, and wait for the laptop boot messages on the monitor! see anything? if yes the laptop screen is broke and needs to be replaced. If still the external monitor stays black the onboard graphics card is up in smoke and you're in big trouble then.
for all problems like this start by simplifying - pull both ram chips out and try each one individually. Remove any accessories like the CD drive and hard drive and see if the machine does anything different.
If these basic steps dont help its probably an internal problem with the laptop and you would have to take it somewhere to disassembly and diagnose.
