The screen might be in sleep or hibernation mode, try move the mouse, and check if it will respond. If not forcely turned OFF the laptop, remove the power sources ( charger and battery) and hold down the power button for 10 secs. Put the power sources back and turn ON the laptop.

Repaired! This sounde like a fuelty screen or screen inverter. To check this, connect to an external monitor, if the external works properly, then it's the screen or inverter. If the external doesn't work, let me know and we'll run the problem down to a more indepth (internal) trouble shoot.
