If you hold the laptop near a light or shine a flashlight on it - can you see anything like a very dim screen? If so the desktop type monitor should have no problem running on your laptop. In any case it's worth hooking up a desktop type monitor and testing it out. m 0 l jsc August 30, 2011 11:06:48 PM And if you can dimly see the screen, that shows that the backlight is probably burnt out. That is a relatively inexpensive (compared to replacing the screen) repair job. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
