I have a Lenovo S10 "ideapad" netbook with a broken screen.
Up untill yesterday I have been using an external monitor connected to the VGA output.
I use this netbook at the office and when working from home: yesterday when I connected it to my home monitor and booted up like always. Everything was normal, it booted up fine, I logged in.
About 5 seconds after the desktop being loaded up, the screen went black, and my monitor went into input seek (if it is not plugged into something it says no input; this is just a black screen and the status light goes between inputs A and B (its a dual input monitor)). The computer was still powered on, all status lights normal, just no output from the VGA port.
