Answers :

If it still doesn't work when you hook it up to an external monitor, assuming you did that properly, then it is your motherboard/video card.
\015\012If you have a seperate video card, I would replace that first. If you don't have a seperate video card, then you need a new motherboard.
\015\012FIRST - I would try hooking it back up to an external monitor, and making sure you switch it over to use the external as the default. otherwise you wont get picture.
\015\012Sorry... good luck.
If you never see any text at all on the exterior monitor (make sure you used the blue key to switch to external monitor even though it's supposed to do it automatically) you have lost the video chip.
