Question about Computers & Internet
It may be that the LCD is bad. One good way to test that is that if you have another external monitor and connect it to the external video output on the back of the laptop. Once you get it connected you will need to switch from the video output from the lcd to the external monitor. Usually there is a function key labeled Fn on the keyboard that you can use in conjunction with the function keys at the top of the keyboard. The function keys will have small icons above them. You can also refer to the manual for the combination. Once you find the combination you should be able to see the video on the external monitor. If this is the case either the lcd or the power inverter is bad.
Also, if you don't have a monitor, you can take the laptop in a dark room and start it. Once its been on for about a minute or you hear sound you can shine a flashlight into the LCD and see if you see the icons on your desktop. If so, it can be either the back light or the LCD, in which case the LCD can be replaced.
