Misuse is the most common cause of this. from the sound of it, it looks like the screen had suffered a severe impact, and it either broke, or the electronics inside the screen went loose. If You're absolutely sure noone dropped it, or hit it with anything, didn't use any solvents etc. to clean the screen, You could take it to Your Vendor and ask for a replacement or repair, but I'm afraid that they will refuse to repair it for free in terms of physical damage to the screen.

There are a number of things that could cause a broken LCD screen, but most involve dropping or incorrect handling. As for fixinig a broken screen; it can be done, but it is a very technical process and can be expensive. In most cases, it just makes more sense financially to replace the computer. If you are comfortable disassembling a laptop, or know someone who is, then you may be able to find a replacement LCD online and have it fixed for a couple hundred dollars. If you send it to the manufacturer to be fixed it will most likely cost $300-500 and won't come back for at least a couple of weeks.

Hope this helps.

Take out the hard drive completely and then see if you hear the clicking noise, if you do then that means the hard drive is bad. Also if it goes right to another message and you don't see the blinking cursor then that also verifies that the hard drive was bad and causing the system to hang.
