Answers :

If your LCD screen on the laptop does not display a picture and if you hook up an external monitor and it doesn't display anything either, then your video card is bad.
But--before you go trash the thing, when you hooked up the external monitor, did you push the Fn key and the corresponding special function key at the top of the keyboard that switches the output to the external screen? (It does not just display to the external screen without you telling it to.
What your uncle describes is a problem with the laptop LCD monitor, not the video card.
