To me this is a hardware problem.

Let's diagnose, and see Shunka_Reid.
Connect a VGA monitor to the laptop.

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.

Number 3 - External VGA display port

General example of VGA connector (port), and VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for the VGA cable example.

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.
General example of a CRT type of monitor,

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings, the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor.
3) External VGA monitor ONLY.

Press, and hold the Fn key down, and at the SAME time tap once on the F4 key.
The F4 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap on the F4 key once more.

Do you get a good display on the external VGA monitor?
Post back in a Comment.

Also, has the laptop ever been cleaned on the Inside, to your knowledge?

Hello
You haven't given the exact model number ot your LG DVD, so I can only give you a general solution to this problem.
Get into its meny, surf through, come to SYSTEM adjust window, change the system. If a NTSC system recorded disc played with PAL system adjustment with DVD, there will be only black/white pciture, and vice versa.
Adjust it to the color system thathave been adopted your country. this must solve the problem. OK.

When i put a cd in i hear the sound but when i put a movie in i cant hear the sound


You're probably missing a codec.
get VLC Media player (free on the web) and play the movie with that.
I'll almost guarantee that VLC will play the movie properly.

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.


there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

Audio won't play on DVD - but it will play for CDs


Hello, you can verify that your receiver is working or not. When you are playing a dvd unplug the audio RCA plugs (red and white) from the back of the Sony dvd player. Touch the tips of each of the RCA plugs with your fingertip. You will hear a buzz sound coming from the speaker associated with the plug if the receiver is working\ i.e. touch the red RCA plug tip and the right speaker will hum...touch the white tip and the left speaker will hum or buzz. This will not hurt your system or speaker. If you do not hear the hum turn the volume to 3 or so and wet your fingertip and tap the tip of the RCA connectors. You will hear "pops" coming from the respected channel. I believe your cd\dvd is at fault. Good Luck!

Dvd plays in black and White


There are a couple of things you could try with this. One, is to make sure that the video input is connected properly. The second would be to make sure that the DVD that played in black and white automatically changed your settings to PAL rather than NTSC.

Hooking up my dvd/vcr playing


The problem definitely lies in your connections. Make sure that the red is in red, white in white and yellow in yellow. If you have multiple sets of these to plug into on the back of your TV, then make sure that look at what that row is named (e.g. AV1, COMP 1, etc...).

Next, change the input on the TV (w/ the remote) to that name: AV1, COMP 1, etc...)
