Ok so Im working on this laptop and it was booted in windows but the screen was black. I plugged in an external monitor and it worked and on the laptop screen it faded back up just a little bit not enough to really see anything though. So I used a multimeter on the inverter and it came back ok with 50Hz. So I plugged everything back in and put all the screws back and when I turned on the laptop again the lights and everything came on but when the hdd light started to flash the screen just turned off. When I plug in the external monitor it says no signal.

What do you guys think the problem is?

The laptop is a Hp G60

Also if it helps this guy came to me earlier in the week and he was missing some screws that were holding his screen to the hinges of the screen. Also the wires that were inside the screen were falling out and being pinched by broken plastic.

The cable that goes from the motherboard to screen, through where the laptop folds over, is supposed to be something that can fail on a laptop especially if its picked up by the screen half.
