I need some help diagnosing a bad laptop LCD screen. LINK
for picture of problem.
The laptop is a Gateway NV52. Basically, I turn it on and it displays a gray screen, then eventually dark gray vertical show up. It has a Radeon GPU so I hooked it up to VGA & HDMI. Both displays ports work on my external monitor, shown in the picture. I took the laptop apart and there are NO ribbon connection issues.
Am I correct that It's just a bad LCD screen?
Should I replace the LCD?
Any help would be appreciated!
