Slammed the lid down on my laptop, & it doesn't work

\015 Hi - I slammed the lid down on my Dell laptop, and now it won't work....help.\015

Answers :

You most likely damaged the LCD or dislodged the cables from system board to the LCD. Also check for a small button or "nub" near the base of the screen, is it stuck or broken? this turns off the screen when lid is closed, slamming may have got it stuck.

\015\012if you have an external monitor. shut off the laptop, connect the video cable from external monitor and turn on laptop...do you get video?
\015\012
\015\012if yes, your LCD is damaged and needs service. if no, you have done far more damage and need to have the whole thing diagnosed at a service center.
