My laptop screen went out on me. When i power it up the status light appears to be booting up normally but the screen is still dark. I've tried to hook it up to an external monitor but still no picture. What can the problem be and should I think about just getting a new laptop?
From the specs of your lappy its an Intel based GFX so it's probably time to replace your laptop. If it was an nvidia GFX chip I would have told you to call the manufacture since it was a huge recall. But since both the display and VGA out doesn't work. The GFX chip is gone, the warranty is gone to, and to replace the MB would be to much money. So sorry you need a new laptop.
