If the LCD is the only thing broken then yes, it will still take pictures. You won't be able to see the pictures you take until you transfer them to a computer, and you won't be able to see the menus to change settings.
if your screen does not display any figures , numbers or icons then the LCD screen is dead. If you look closely at the LCD scren and fine cracks or lines on it then i advise ou to take it to arepair shop for replacement.
It could be the LCD ribbon is lose or the LCD is malfunctioning. In either case, you need to open the camera to fix it. A lose ribbon is not likely because Nikon cameras are well put together. It would require a huge impact to losen the ribbon. The LCD would be broken before the ribbon comes lose. If you want to replace the LCD and don't want to do it yourself, see my answer to "need to replace broken screen"
This sounds like a broken or cracked LCD screen. The backlite is working, thus you will get the white screen. The LCD could also be disconnected internally, or has other problems. But this is a direct problem with the LCD. A camera like this can usually take pictures, and you may be able to use it to set the menus by using the video cable to the TV or computer screen (some flat screens have video inputs).
Your LCD screen has been cracked, it will have to be replaced. The screen is actually made of thin glass, so what you are seeing is actually just like a cracked or broken mirror or window. This kind of damage is not covered by manufacturers warranty so I would suggest finding a repair facility online to service your camera if you wish to get it replaced. The replacement LCD should be somewhere from $60 to $80 and somewhere around $50 in labor.
The problem with communicating with your computer is unrelated to the screen issue. Try again, and make sure everything is set up right. It is likely that function still works fine. :)
