The screen is really blank or you can see a very dim image? If you can see a faint image, probably you have to replace the screen inverter.
Test your laptop with an external screen. If there is no image on both internal and external monitors, check the memory. Reseat the memory module and try again.

Have you made sure it's not just switched over to external monitor? Check by holding the "Fn" button (usually at the bottom left of the keyboard) while pressing the key (often one of F1-F12) marked with different monitors. On mine this is F5. This may toggle it back if you have toggled it off by accident.

If it really is broken, I'd say $200 for a new one is a fair deal, at least if the computer itself is fairly up to date and powerfull.

Do i need a new screen?

Yes, you will need to replace the LCD screen and controller that comes with it. Screen occasionally just go bad and you end up with split screens like yours where one part is normal and the other is dim. If you send your laptop to repair or use geek squad you may have to pay about 400 bucks. If you order the LCD screen it should cost you about 175 to 200 up to 300 depending where you look.

Damaged the viewing screen on my olympus (mju) 300 digital


If it's completely broken I'm afraid it's a gonner. The cost of replacing the LCD far exceeds the cost of a new camera.

In the UK the cost of a new screen is about £100/$200, it's not worth it for a camera more than a year old.

Blank screen

Resetting your camera will not help ( I see this problem every day and in my experience it cannot be cured by resetting your camera ). It looks like a faulty CCD sensor and it will have to be replaced. It will cost +- $ 200 to have a new CCD block put in but get a quote first.
