Blank screen immediately after start-up.

Screen goes blank after 10 mins of use, now it doesn't come on. I tried SMC reset, no joy. Took off cover & have LEDs 1-3 illuminated green, LED 4 not illuminated. What could it be, video card? Both fans are working. I read somewhere that there was a recall on this machine b/c of this same problem, has anyone heard of such a recall? This is the 4th time since '05 that this has happened. Looking for some advice, thanks.
