This laptop is 2 years old, and I’ve never had one problem with it. Before I noticed it was broken, it had been sitting on my desk powered off unplugged for a few days. I then put it into a laptop case and walked to my friends house and opened it. The computer would turn on but the screen wouldn’t. When it was “sleeping”, I couldn’t fully power it off, I could hear a faint whizzing noise from the screen. Any ideas as to the problem?
 
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.
