Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

If u can connect the laptop to another monitor or TV u can know if the problem is the LCD of the laptop or the video onboard.

my daughter's dell 1545 screen had a line through the screen with no visible crack to the screen or case. The rest was gray. I called Dell. They said that if I sent it to the depot they would fix it but charge me for it stating abuse or accident ($300.00) and basically hold it for ransom until I paid. Since I had ten days left on my warranty I paid for an extension (119) and now they are sending a service rep to fix it and replace the motherboard for free. I looked on line about motherboard defects and I noticed that on some models it states that if you squeeze the laptop too hard in a certain corner (top left hand) that it will break the solder of the chip and cause a shutdown. Maybe that is your problem. I hope you have some warranty left...perhaps you can get the same deal I did.
