    Hi, and welcome to TSG.

    Does it light up and then go black right away or does it just stay black?

    When viewed in a darkened room, do you see a faint glow around the edges of the screen or is it all dark?

    If it is all dark, shine a strong light on the screen once it sounds like it has completed the normal boot up. Do you see a faint version of what you normally see?

    Does the laptop have an external monitor jack and do you have a monitor you can use for testing
