    I have that same model laptop. I did have a problem with the cable thru the hinge, but it presented itself as blank screen (no backlight).

    Check the f7/f8 keys which control screen brightness. See if the setting is less than MAX right now.

    If you are using the laptop in sunlight....it is not great :(
