That's a burnt resistor. I would guess that is not the only part that is bad. You have a short on the board. There is no way to read the value anymore. I'm afraid you are looking at a new motherboard. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.
I've seen this problem a few times with laptops my family/co-workers have. If it's like their problem, you should be able to plug in an external monitor and see on the screen. If that works, it's either your LCD screen or your LCD backlight inverter...One of the ways to tell whether it's one or the other is try to shine a bright light directly at the screen. If you can see anything on the screen, it means it's the backlight inverter. If it's still completely black, it's your lcd screen. Both can be replaced fairly easily, just be sure to look really well, because if you purchase the (more expensive) LCD screen, replace it, and still have the problem, you'll need to do the backlight inverter anyway. You can typically find instructions for replacing them online somewhere.
When plugging in the external monitor, wait for a while to see if it will boot to your desktop, then if there's nothing on the screen look at your keyboard. There should be a button on there to swap projection modes (usually have to hit fn+f5). Try hitting that a few times just to be sure. If you still can't see anything on the monitor, it doesn't mean it's not necessarily a software issue. Download/burn a live CD (any linux version will work) and try booting from that to rule out any possible software issues.
it's a powerful gaming notebook but it worth about $1000 (in different websites) and this price is very high for such notebook. you can buy better notebooks (absolutely with better hardware) with lower price. (like dell 5010R)
use the recovery CD ..if it came with vista ..if not ...look for a boot-able DVD with vista ...and be sure ya have all drivers first for to avoid problems ...at least the network to be able to connect to internet an d resolve the rest ... but ...the secure way and recommended is to reinstall clean from a cd -dvd ...
