L540 Screen issue

I have a L540 Thinkpad. I recently had the dvd writer stop working on this unit. Now, yesterday I closed the lid with the laptop powered up, as I have done many times. When I went to open the lid and continue using it, the backlight on the screen comes on but nothing else. Also, when I connect an external monitor, it works perfectly. What might be my issue?

Re: L540 Screen issue

If the screen is white (backlight only) the problem is usually s disconnected or broken cable
