Successful Boot but still black screen
My wife's backpack with her laptop fell off her chair this afternoon before coming home. She didn't think much of it because it didn't seem like a hard fall.
Nevertheless, she gets home and we've got dead video on the device.
The computer is booting up fine and seems perfectly functional (hooked it up to the TV via HDMI), but the LCD is black. The LCD is powering on/the backlight is coming on but it just doesn't seem to be getting a signal.
I've tried power cycling but that's about it. I've got a bad feeling this is beyond my ability to repair, but maybe I'm wrong.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Is this a good question?
