There seems to be either an LCD screen problem or the LCD inverter board. This issue needs to be properly diagnosed by a technician.

When I turn on the computer, the screen does not light up. I can sometimes just barely see some writing or a box, but nothing I can use.

I would assume you have used the FN and brigtness up button,
If this has not solved your problem it would more than likely be the inverter on its way out,, the inveter is located at the bottom middle of your screen bezel and would be best repaired by a professional as high voltage can be exposed

Try using F2 or F10 or Del. Check the Key board connection. You can use Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart the machine. If it doesn't work you have to change the keyboard and check again.

Turn on lap top no screen image

If you are running it on a battery, try connecting to power supply outlet. if nothing happens, it's time to unsrew the RAM compatment and resit them ok. Change the RAM if no image appears on the screen but not before testing with an external monitor ok. Good luck
