Default Toshiba satellite l500 defect VGA?

My toshiba has a black screen until the windows starts loading. So I cant see the booting nor enter the BIOS because I cant see what Im doing.
When I connect it to an external display, in this case my TV through a HDMI cable, it shows everything on the TV, including the booting and BIOS.
However, when I tried to connect my laptop to the TV through the VGA I didn't see anything on the TV, not even when the windows boots.

Can this be fixed and is it worth risking?

Thanks

Maybe a month ago, when I wanted to boot my other windows but couldn't see the boot menu, I have kali linux on it too. Was working perfectly fine before.
I can see the boot menu and select the right system which I want to use while connected to an external display over HDMI as I mentioned.

Same. But on the external display I can see it.
I tried it without the external display first ofc.
