I've run laptops with no screen before. Usually not a big deal except taking it apart to get to it.

Sounds like the inverter went. If the screen is on, can you shine a flashlight at the screen and see a faint picture?

Inverter or screen gone and yes to removal.. but be careful...the surround breaks easily..

All the best Brett :)

Yes it can be removed and replaced. It should still work fine without the monitor.
