Can I remove a laptop's screen and use it as a desktop?

I have an Asus laptop, a few months ago, the LCD screen started going. First single pixels, then lines appeared, now it has a bunch of hash is in he middle. I've run diagnostic, pixel-fix type stuff. Didn't work. If it's hooked up to my TV or to an external monitor, the picture is fine. it is out of warranty.
If I remove the laptop's screen, will it continue to work when hooked up to an external monitor. Will it try to "find" the laptop's screen, hang up and die? Is there something I can set in windows so it'll look for an hdmi or VGA connection first?
I am reasonably computer literate, but my mechanical knowledge is limited to desktops. What am I getting into? Hope me !
