  1. Hello drizydre;

    As long as it's the laptop LCD screen that is bad and not the graphics card.

    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.
  2. 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.
