      Apologies for the late response thanks so much again for your continued help with figuring this out im a very slow learner when it comes to computers. Basically what happens when I put in a bootable CD or even a DVD for that matter, I get no video at all, it's just like a black screen with no picture, I tried shutting down/restarting several times but that didn't work, I even took the battery out of my laptop and put it back in(just to check if that would reset something) however to no avail. i guess to sum it up, in the past month i havent seen my laptop give any display/picture, however i do know for a fact that it does switch on ok and it also charges ok its just no picture at all just black screen, it seems to be a rare issue i tried looking things up online but couldn't find anything related to my problem thank you so much guys again

              think i'll continue usin the external monitor at least for now however in the future would definitely consider getting some estimates on getting the display repaired thanks for the advice of the external monitor btw would have never thought of that only thing is, in which case if the estimaate is very high would it just be worth it if i purchased a new laptop?

              Only you can determine that...after you have the estimate in hand...

              Note:  1 would get more than 1 of them...

                  thanks patio, will get some estimates in hand u recommend more then one right? if it were up to me i would do anything to keep my current laptop(i have lot of files and important work documents that i need) and i would not have any of those if i bought a brand new computer

                  EDIT: i meant to edit my first post but in the process of doing so, i accidentally posted again, is there a way i can delete my first response to u? thanks so much patio

                  No worries as far as the double-post.

                  And as your data goes you do not have to neccessarily keep the laptop to save your data...you can buy an external enclosure and transfer/save all that to any working PC...

                  Keep us posted on how you want to proceed and we'll advise accordingly.
