You may have a bad inverter that powers the florescent tube to give light to the LCD. Your laptop needs service at any rate.

Black screen


1) Which software did you remove?
2) Is the machine running, but you just cannot see anything, or is it totally dead? Any sounds, humming, drives turning, lights flashing?

If it is not dead, try plugging in an external screen. To get the screen to work, you may have to press Fn5 I think (has a picture of two screens on the key). If the signal goes to the external screen, try pressing a couple of times more and see if it cycles back to the laptop's own screen. If the screen does not wake up, but the external one works, your screen needs looking at. If under warranty, take it back, otherwise it will be up to you to decide whether to spend on fixing it or splurging on a new one. You could of course just turn the laptop into a deskbound machine using the external screen, and spend the money on something else.

The laptop turns on, but the screen stays black


If you can shine a light into the screen and faintly make out the images? Then it's probably the inverter/backlight board, not too expensive or difficult to replace in most cases. Let us know.

I am working on one right now with a similiar problem. The power supply is bad in the one I am working on, and sadly, the part is not made anymore. I hope you have better luck than I am finding the bad component in yours. Sorry for the negitive answer.
