Whenever I turn on my laptop, the keyboard gets lit, but the boot up process does not get displayed on the screen. There's just a black screen. I never put my laptop down, so I know it's display screen is fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
 
helpstar is right. 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.

You may also want to try hitting CTRL + SHIFT + WIN + B to try and reset your graphics driver as another possible fix.

The hard drive or other components like a DVD or USB device could be responsible for freezing the notebook as well.
