Chimes, white screen then turns grey
I have a mid 2010 Macbook that has been dropped on the corner with the magsafe which I just replaced and has restored power. During start up their is only a white screen then after a normal start up time it turns grey as though it is entering the desktop. I did attach it to an external LCD to see the results and nothing at all showed up, not even white screen, which makes me wonder if the external connecter is good after the fall. I disconnected the internal screen to force it to boot to the external and still got nothing at all. I've also tried starting with different known working ram and detaching the DVD drive to eliminate them as an issue. Is it possible that this is an LCD wire issue or a damaged out video chip?
Almost forgot I did start from a Usb install drive and let it set out of frustration. After a bit the voice over came on and asked "Hit enter if you would like to use english". I've also done the smc/pram resets several times to no avail.
