First see in the laptop even has the capability of video. connect an external monitor.
If you still don't get any picture, the odds are is that your on board graphics/card went bad. This is usually not replaceable.

There is a ribbon (connector) that goes from the laptop to the monitor, this may have come loose or may be broken from use.
At this point you would have to disassemble the laptop to check this out.
My knowledge on this subject is somewhat limited, but you may need a new monitor. If that is the case i assume you are looking at $100-$200 to fix it, if a monitor is still available. But google and search eBay to see what you come up with.

When you connected the external display, did the laptop boot to that display immediately, or did you have to manually change it show on that display (e.g. using the display switch hot-key).

Since your external screen works, you might also try this to see if it's a POST issue...which MIGHT mean clearing the CMOS to default values could resolve or provide further diagnosis.

With the external display connected and showing the active images (as you did above), SWITCH the active display to the laptop screen using either the hot-key for your laptop or using the display management utility. See if anything that looks like actual content flickers on the screen as you do this, or even if the image comes up as it should. Toggle it back and forth a few times between the two screens.
