Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

Open Question

Black screen Today I started my laptop (Toshiba Satellite A100 S8111TD), just like everyday. I leave the room. Someone else came in, saw the laptop on, and put it off (normal way... log off..blabla..) and she does something i never do. She folds in my laptop's screen. 2 minutes later, i noticed my laptop being off again. I try to put it back on, everything works, the laptop makes the normal '' fill in your password'' sound... but no screen.... as black as it were never on at all.... How is this possible? Can i fix this myself? Can I find a temporary solution for this untill I drag it to a specialist?

    Here's what I would try: Turn it off. Remove the battery. After several minutues, put the battery back in and turn it on. What happens? If the same problem, hit the F8 key on startup and try to start in safe mode. If in safe mode, can you see the screen? If so, a system restore is in order.

Black screen w/blinking cursor

So.. you can select safe mode? Or you turn it on and it is resuming into the blank screen?

If the latter. Unplug the power, pull the battery out for 20 seconds or so. Then put it all back together and try booting up.
