    Hi,
    I've a Packard Bell TJ66 laptop and it fell to ground.
    Trying to power on, I've seen the screen broken.
    I've tried to connect to an external monitor but it doesn't show any image.
    The rest works well because the Windows 7 start sounds.
    My question is, does the graphic card built-in the motherboard ?
    Could it be repaired or I need to change the motherboard and the screen ?
    Waiting for answer.
    Thank you and best regards.

    After you hear that Windows has loaded, try connect the monitor and then press Windows Key + P twice and hopefully you should be able to see something on your monitor.

    You could also try connect the monitor before you have turned on the laptop and/or close the lid so that the monitor is the only thing enabled.

    As you say, I connected the monitor before powering on the laptop with no output signal as result.
    I will try again with your suggested key combination (in my test, I used Fn+F4 and F5) to load Windows and connect the monitor.

    No guarantees, but make sure to try it after Windows has finished loading.

    Unfortunately, I've connected the monitor after Windows loading using the key combination and screen doesn't show any image.
    What's your suggestion ?
    Could be possible to repair the graphic card ?
    Is this build-in ?
