Question LCD not working, but can connect to external monitor

I tried replacing the inverter and then the LCD itself, but no luck. I'm hoping it isn't the motherboard. Any other ideas I can try?

I have a Compaq Presario, C60-224NR

Are you sure all the connections are good? The back video cable? The power plug? Inverter connected to the pcb?

I think your problem is just the connections.

9 times outta 10 it is your monitor's ribbon connection to the motherboard.

Yeah, that. Couldn't think of the right wording.

Do you know how to use a multi meter? I'd check to see if your monitor is receiving power via the ribbon. It may be bad, but just not visibly so.
