Notebook screen has "died"

Hi, can anyone help/advise me? My notebook screen appears to have "died", all I see is a black screen, but if I connect to a spare monitor I can see all that I need, I can't however lug a monitor with me wherever I go. Can the screen be replaced or is the only option to buy a new notebook?

How old is the notebook? i am sorry to say this could be a very costly repair this in turn could make it cheaper to buy a new note book.
You could get it checked out.

If you feel you can manage the repair yourself, then a backlight tube would cost about £30 to £50 click here, and it's by no means certain that would be the cure. If you want the laptop repaired for you, the same company will give you a quote, probably well over £100, so as pk46 says, a new laptop may be the best solution.

thanks pk46, VoG and Gongoozler; the notebook is 3 years old and is a Digimate M-2615 manufactured for Digimate(HK) which isn't recognised by the "backlight tube" website. Looks like I might have to buy new!
