    probably either a dead tft

    or a dead video processor, VPU most likely on a laptop is onboard which means buying a new motherboard

    Check the switch that gets closed when the lid is shut hasn't stuck.
    If you plug an external monitor in, does the system actually boot?

    When you close the lid on the laptop, a tiny switch somewhere will tell the lappy that the lid is closed. He's suggesting this could be causing a problem if it's stuck, or faulty.

    did you activate the external monitor properly? you might have to activate it using special hotkeys and stuff.

    if that doesnt work it sounds like a duff mobo

    Usually along the top of the keyboard.

    You might want to try pressing Function F8 (well thats what it is on my Dell), basically it switches between displaying the picture on the laptops screen or the output at the back. (give it a few secs after pushing the button as it takes a little bit for it to change).

    You could try taking the HD out and seeing how far it gets.
