Answers :

Dear ...,

when switching on te laptop, does it make noises, does the fan run, the CD/DVD-drive
LED shows green light and the harddisk rattle little bit? - good for you if it does, as the system still boots up !

to check if the LCD screen is broke and not the graphics card malfunctioning:

hook it up to an external monitor (one usually used with desktop PCs)
when laptop is switched off, using the 3-pin input in the back or to the right side of your laptop, and make sure the external monitor's power cord is properly fused...

Now switch on the external monitor first and then your machine again, and wait for the laptop boot messages on the monitor!
see anything? if yes the laptop screen is broke and needs to be replaced.
If still the external monitor stays black the onboard graphics card is up in smoke and you're in big trouble then.

Good luck finding out!
