Try connecting your system to an external monitor, does it work then?

You can also try shining a flashlight thought the Apple logo on the lid to see if you can see the faint image of your desktop & icons (poor mans backlight), can you see it?

sorry for late reply but my desktop is clean, no icons out ther in center they are at extreme right corner.


Do you have any background image showing? Many people have a desktop picture (I have a picture of my dogs). If you don't have one (you setup a uniform color) do you see the tinting of that color? Otherwise you'll need to plug in an external monitor so see if you see anything on it.
