Laptop Screen is Blank

The computer turns on. The power 'on' light is blue, but nothing else happens. The screen remains blank. However, if I put a CD in the drive it plays just fine although the screen remains blank. The computer was taking a long time to boot before this happened. Help!!!!! I've got tons of files on this laptop!!!!

Blank screen upon startup

Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

Laptop won't boot up properly

Connect your computers to an external monitor and press the appropriate F key combination (Shift + F7) to switch video output to the monitor. If you see an image on your monitor you have a bad LCD screen or back light inverter. If not you need a new motherboard. Guy that gets ticks, you need a new motherboard anyway.

Monitor is blank when we turn the computer on.

Maybe not. Find the FN key. It is usually BLUE in color
Then look on TOP row of Computer keyb (or all over) and find CRT/LCD.
Press the FN and that key and your screen should come back. You accidentally sw. it to CRT (outside, external monitor)
