what version of Windows are you using? What happens when you disconnect the external/second monitor?

Connect an external monitor to the VGA port to make sure the computer and graphics card is otherwise working.

Typically the cause of the black-screen failure is in the inverter or the back-light tubes which are replaceable items. It's not a job for the squeamish and involves tricky disassembly of the computer, so if you're not confident in tackling the work, better to get a quote from an experienced service person

@AdrianG0001 they are already using the VGA port, as stated in:

is working on my 2nd screen


Besides, a One-for-One swap of the whole laptop screen is one connector!
