Old computer and black screen!

i've had a laptop for 8 year now (Evesham Voyager X5) and about 3 years back, knocked it off a table which messed up the screen so it wouldn’t light up. however everything else works fine on it and i’ve been hooking it up to an old block monitor, but i find it annoying now as i have lots of valuable software on the machine. i’m not too great on the hardware side of computing, however i did a bit of research today, watched some utube videos and found out it’s most likely either the inverter or backlight gone bust. the thing is though, as the computer so old, i can’t seem to find anything about its spec and i was wondering if it matter what make/model inverter i bought if i was to buy one too the computer's voltage and the lcd screen it has on it already?

yeah the x5 does have wi-fi
i put the lid switch back in place, but where one of the clips snapped, it springs back up and no longer closes properly.
i'm still not sure what’s really a matter if it's the inverter or not, just gone by you guys and what i've seen in videos. i guess i have to just some other person to test it out and fix.
