Plug a regular computer monitor into your VGA laptop adapter. Hit Fn 7 and if you see the image on the extenal screen your video board is good. You can also tried to replace the memory sticks. If you have two pull one then the other.

turn on your computer, press F2 button. if it can log into the bios setup it means you just have a software issue. Reinstalling the window will do the magic. if your netbook didn't display anything from the time you turn on the netbook, it means something wrong with your hardware.
