You have either,

cracked your laptop screen
the ribbon cable has come loose,

Either way you will need to take off the front of the laptop screen plastic bezel
remove the screws
detatch old screen,

if the screen is cracked replace the screen

if there is no cracks then check that the ribbon cable didnt come loose
u can put it back in and check the screen works before putting the front bezel and screws back in

If you are not confident ask a laptop repair guy to do it for you

i fixed one last week for a client,

it was £88.70 incuding VAT and special recorded delivery (with insurance)
screen arived next day and took me 1 hour to fit

I charged the lady £45 to fit the screen

So if you want to save money do it yourself
You can find Youtube videos explaining how to do it, thats what i did
I am a PC repair guy, but i had never had to fit a screen before
I had no problems whatsoever fitting it
the hardest part for me was getting the front plastic bezel off and then back on at the end

goodluck hope this helps you please rate me

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S6816 series laptop. I fell asleep watching a DVD one night - when I woke up the next morning everything was dead. I took it to a store where they said that all power...

Please confirm if the laptop was running with or without the battery adapter when you were playing the DVD.

Take the battery out from the laptop and start with the battery adapter connected and see if you see any activity.

Laptops don't die like that.

ZEN X-Fi 8GB won't turn on.

I have an older model, and I can't be sure but see if there is a small hole on it somewhere. That is a reset button. Usually a paperclip, bent straight, will fit in the hole. Pressing this button in should reset the player. It should then re-index all your music.
