Question about Computers & Internet
It could be a dead screen or just a connector problem.
Remove all power sources.
Most laptops have a narrow plate between the keyboard and the screen. this is usually clipped and screwed into place. Remove all screws, you may also have to remove the screen hinge covers.
The, very carefully, prise/unclip the plate up, it may also involve sliding it sideways. You may then have to remove another plate and or the keyboard
Once removed, look for multipin / ribbon connectors, check that they are home and good. Also check that the leads going to the screen are not damaged.
If a plug was out or a cable damaged, you found your fault.
Getting into the screen is again a series of screws and clips, assuming you've not already resolved the problem. Again you're looking for a loose connection or faulty lead.
If all appears well, you're looking for a new screen. You may be able to get a generic part from a repair shop or online.
