Try to restart the computer in safe mode. At start up press F8 key like your are trying to get the computers attention. You should get a start up menu. Chose Safe Mode. Once in safe mode reset the screen resolution to is lowest basic setting and reboot. See if this will help. Do you have a good antivirus program. While in safe mode run a scan also. Hope this helps Fixya up.
Try to reinstall windows overwriting the previous installation so that all your data, files and programs will not be deleted. If you have your windows installation cd, insert it to the cd/dvd drive and start/restart your laptop. It then detects the installer and scans your computer. Just follow the on-screen instructions. But during setup, do not choose the "Repair Mode" instead choose "New Install". Now when attempting to install, then system will detect your previous windows installation so there highlight (using the arrow keys) choose "Repair Previous Installation". When you do this, all windows system files will be replaced but all programs and personal files will be in tact.
How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.
Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.
Possibly the monitor is defective - usually most laptops have a blue plug at the back for an external monitor, if plugging in a normal monitor brings up a screen, then likely the laptop monitor is defective. If you get a splash screen and bios info on trying to start it,it indicates your windows is defective or has lost it's start-up files - a windows reinstall will fix that.
If its a blank screen all the time that never shows anything not even a screen at startup then it sounds like the internal cable from your monitor to the motherboard of the laptop is unplugged or possibly broken. You need to remove the keyboard from the laptop to check this.
I recommend bringing the laptop to a professional if you have no experience with opening laptops.
Could be a simple video driver problem, try starting up your laptop in safe mode (Pressing F8 on boot up).
If and when screen comes up highlight 'Start Windows in Safe Mode'
Next a list of startup drivers etc will stream down the screen and tell you you are starting in safe mode, allow this.
If your lcd screen stays on then it's a driver problem, go to add/remove programmes and uninstall driver the driver and restart your laptop.
This should then start in VGA mode all icons will be bigger than normal.
Either re-install video drivers from setup/restore disk or go to laptops manufacturer website to download drivers.
If no screen even in safe mode LCD probably dead.
