    Probably means the display is shot. Are you able to hook it to an external display?

    Did you happen to push open the lid a bit too far? It seems like the port for your screen is just halfway unplugged, this happens a lot to me when I flip open my laptop screen quickly and let it get too far. What is the model # of your laptop btw?

    How would I hook to external display? Sorry I'm not very computer savy.

    Is it worth fixing, I wonder....

    You use a VGA, DVI or HDMI cable and connect it to an external monitor. Or a TV if you have one.
