Not sure but it may have an inverter or back light both of which is quite cheap under $5 put the model into an Ebay search laptop screens.  Up top change the search criteria price and shipping cheapest, the little stuff is located there I found several listed but do not know your model.

Be careful working with tv's and lcd monitors they can deliver a lethal shock.

Now I have a desktop lying around and I thought I might plug in the hard drive and I saw that the hard drive is not booting up and it is giving me 0x0000007b error code when I stop making it restart now I don't know if that would help or not but I really want to recover my data without using my parted magic

That's a general stop error.

 

Causes:

1. Bootsector and data corruption.

2. Bootsector virus (unlikely)

3. Harddrive failure.

4. Misconfigured bios settings. IDE, AHCI, SCSI

5. DATA or Power Cables to the HD.

6. HD scsi hardware drivers not loaded.
