Hello

Im not sure what is wrong with this laptop. All I did was move it “gently” to a new place. Now when I turn it on the screen is black! Keyboard backlights are on and the light of the touchpad lock button is flashing red and yellow. Fans are spinning for a few seconds then they go quiet. I tried resetting the battery but nothing happened. Please help.
 
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.
