There are a couple of things that it could be , 1, A loose ribbon cable in the back of the monitor, due to a drop, bang, jar, etc. 2, There is a tiny switch the controls the backlighting when you open and close the lid of the laptop, it will stick due to dust, dirt, or hinges being loose or damaged. 3, Your backlighting has quit altogether. If you can see a "ghost image" on the screen in a bright light, it's the backlighting or switch. If you see nothing it could be the switch, loose connection, or the monitor is out. It's difficult to say exactly without troubleshooting the problem.

Did you try and reset the memory? Turn the laptop upside down and unscrew the compartment for the memory. Also, try removing the harddrive and resetting it.

Won't boot screen black


A black screen on startup can be so many things! I have learned this lesson the hard way. Never turn off the computer when it is half way through the boot procedure. Even when it is taking forever, or having a major problem you must let it run through if possible. Interrupting it once may be ok, but twice or three times is a no no. After you have carelessly restarted and shutdown a few times the black screen may appear. But this time it may be beyond repair for the average computer user. http://tips4pc.com/articles/computer%20troubleshooting/how_to_repair_a_damaged_boot_sec.htm

Good Luck!!!!!!

Screen is black out


Unfortunately it sounds like your screen is bad. There is really no repair for a screen that has lost the back lighting. If you know how to remove the keyboard you could reset the monitor cables to see if that helps but most likely it won't.

You can still use the computer by connecting an external monitor but it is difficult to go mobile that way. Screens can be replaced if you know a good technician and can find a replacement screen.

your screen is crapping out. most likely the wires connecting the screen to the video chip... but long story short, you will either have to repair the screen for a ton of money or simply buy a new computer.
