Ok so my Asus x200m notebook pc screen wont turn on but the cpu is on coz I can see three lights.. on the lightbulb symbol, on the battery symbol and on the tower symbol..what does that mean..and I cant remove the battery coz it has an internal one....and it doesnt turn on if I dont plug it...this started when I was working on a project while I was plugging it on ac.. then suddenly there was a blackout on our city but my laptop should stay on right coz it has a battery.. but now all I see is a black screen
 
Try this...

1. Turn the laptop off (not sleep or hibernate but off).
2. Connect an external monitor to the laptop.
3. Turn on the external monitor.
4. Turn on the laptop.

NOTE: You may have to press an "external monitor" button. Could be the f4 button or a button with two monitors on it, for the external monitor to work.

If you can see fine on the external monitor, then your attached display, or the ribbon cable that connects it, are your problem.

If you can't see on the external monitor at all, or the problem occurs on the external monitor as well, then it is probably the graphics card/GPU that is the problem, which may require the motherboard be replaced.
