Perhaps the LED screen is not properly connected/faulty, or the video card gave up on you. Try connecting your laptop to an external display. Start it up, wait a few minutes (assuming it's loading up all the way to desktop) and then connect your external display. I've got a 13" macbook pro mid 2010 doing the same. Not sure if i'll be able to do anything about it (I dont want to buy a new logic board at $500) but at least I can use the laptop as a desktop computer.

You pooched something in reassembly, this IS NOT a BOOT CD issue. Follow DrFrantz's advice to determine if the fault is in the VGC (bad and expensive) or the link to, or possibly LED it's self (might be 'fixible" if you've a lose connection ).

Good Luck,
