any monitor manufacture will work. You'd just need the connector to an external one.

yes, if it's not working that would isolate it pretty effectively.

ok so if it doesnt display it onto the the monitor its the mother board but i was looking where display is under that plastic there is like long chip i forgot what they call taht chip for mac i mean i can get it for you it basically hooks it up from the screen to the mother board i think right by the heat sink could that cause problems by chance?
