T61 Strange Monitor Problem

I have had my T61 for almost 2 years now and I have a strange problem since yesterday.

When I boot my computer up my monitor has a glow to it but it is still black, nothing appears on the screen.

I hooked up an external monitor to it and it works with the external monitor but when I try to enable my laptop screen and have dual display it doesn't work.

Does anyone have any clue as to what the problem might be?

Re: T61 Strange Monitor Problem

The glow means the CCFL tube is working, while the LCD component is not receiving a signal.
