Re: I NEED HELP
The problem resides with your monitor or your video card.
To easily find out, get a family member or a neighbor to bring over their LCD monitor, then check the display.
An LCD is the easiest to carry and easiest to position on a busy desk.
If the display is normal on the LCD monitor, then your "other" monitor is defective, and vice versa.
(Please ensure the monitors are at least turned OFF before you switch them, not necessary to turn off the computer)

I would make a frame around it approximately the size it should be. then use lots of strings to pull it evenly all around. Gradually shortening the strings while working the wool to try to get the fibers to open up.
Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager. Select Display Adapters and uninstall it. Then Ask Windows to scan for new HW. Let it detect and install the display adapter.
If this does not work then select Monitor and uninstall it. Make Windows detect the monitor and install it.
open your Control Panel and then open ADD/REMOVE Programs.. review the alphabetical list and uninstall ANYTHING you do not use anymore. If you are not SURE leave it alone. Uninstall any old versions of SUN JAVA.. leave the latest version (Ver 6 update 13)
next do a internet search for "ATF Cleaner" this is a very simple program that does not need installing to run. It will clean up a host of things for Windows, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera if they are installed..
more solutions are available though this is a good start. If you cannot free up enough space using these methods then you need a larger hard drive though I would question replacing the HDD on such an aging laptop.. the best thing is to uninstall as much unneeded software as possible..
Have you recently installed a new video card? If not then you need to because the one you have is broke. If you can plug in another screen to see if that works and if it does then you should re-install the software (if any) that came with the new screen. If you need anything else please let me know.
So where is the question?
Should you replace it? Yes, if the cost isnt more than the value of the laptop or the laptop isnt really old, otherwise, just buuy a new one and slave the old HDD and copy your fils off it.
Typially you can order the screen and you have to take the old one off, remove the plastic frame and install the new one.
If you think you can do it your self, go for it. paying someone for parts in labor will be more than buying a new one so check out the cost and decide.
