The laptop turns on fine, I can hear the windows loading chime while it loads up, and the hard drive light flickers. However, the display doesn't show much except a greenish-bluish color with lines going through it. The backlight does work though. Now, I'm hoping all it needs is an LCD replacement screen to work.
This is what the screen looks like while the laptop is on:
I think the graphics card in the laptop is working too,because when Windows is booting up (I know because of the chime) the screen kind of changes colors a bit.
I'm not very good with laptops, but I think this is all I need. I opened it up, and replacing the screen seems easy enough. I also checked all the connections, and they seem to be secured snuggly.
