    K I need to get this laptop working.. It will power up just fine but the display will not turn on. I've checked for loose connections and such and it all looks good. I can hear the windows startup music and everything after a bit but no display.. here is the catch. The keyboard doesnt work either so I cant just hook it up to an external monitor and press the FN F5 or whatever it is to switch monitors... BUT I have a usb keyboard ... so what would the command on a usb keyboard be to switch monitors? they dont have FN keys...

    interesting, power on the machine, using the usb keyboard, enter setup. Look out for option (if any) that would allow you to select external monitor as primary boot device. If this works, and the monitor works, then its most likely your LCD screen needs changing. You should buy another keyboard as well.

    sorry, I wasn't thinking to right! I think you should go with a new laptop keyboard , a pulled one will be cheap.
