    okay so had taken the screen off my laptop for my car pc install but now my wife needs the laptop for school, when i put the screen back on it wont work, i have it hooked up to other monitors via the vga port and it works great but i cant get a signal to the actual laptop screen. I have tried FN + F4 with it not working, anyone have any help. I have a compaq v5000

    Oops, that sucks

    Chances are that you have a broken/cracked/discombobulated ribbon cable that connects the screen to the motherboard

    Or, if you are lucky, one of the connectors is not on right.

    Good luck and spare parts are an eBay away.
