    Usually on laptops there is a key or key combination to turn off your screen, see if that turns it back on.

    First of all how do you drop your mouse on your laptop keyboard?
  3. See if a hard reboot works

    Thank you!
  5. Ok. It came back on for a few seconds, then started flashing and then went black again!
  6. The key combination is usually FN + F5, just look for the F number button that has a picture of a screen on it and try to see if that works.
    Given that you only dropped a mouse on it its not likely to be any hardware/software issues.

    EDIT: Most laptops also require you to be in windows before the FN combo works so make sure you're booted.

    Try restarting the computer 3 times, then if the screen is still black try the key combo again.
