before going there, is the screen physically broken? like a hole in it? if not, and the laptop works when connected to an external monitor try shining a flashlight at the screen with it powered on and disconnected from the external monitor. if you can see an image then the inverter, cable, or backlight are out, which are cheaper to replace. if you see no image the screen cable itself may be damaged, also cheaper to fix.

ah. in that case nevermind. just wanted yo be on the safe side. you might consider looking around eBay for a screen . possibly a non working laptop going for cheap. even if the screen doesn't work it might be worth a shot if its cheap enough since you have a good backlight and inverter. Ill poke around for a decent looking website as well.

well, what I mean is if your friends still lights up like that, and someone put the same model up on eBay because it doesn't work even if their is screen wont come on THEIR problem may be the backlight or inverter. its not very likely for the screen itself to actually go bad. so if it was very cheap and he can't afford a new panel it might be worth a try. no guarantees of course so the risk between that and the cost of a new screen, or the cost.of a new laptop have to be condidered

I would consider 120 reasonable. anywhere cheaper is sold out, average is 150. nothing cheap out there to try a part swap with. and with eBay you have buyer protection in case its broken
