A few days ago I left my computer on hibernate mode, after about an hour when I came back to open my laptop it just froze on the user select menu. I had to manually restart. I then booted up again but I got a black screen before it even got to the windows logo. However it seems like the computer is running ( the fan is making its usual noise, I can see the lights on the keyboards etc.) but I just can not see anything on the screen. I am not even able to go into any type of mode since I can't see what I am doing, I also can not check the BIOS since again I cannot see anything. The only recent download, which was on the day this happened, was a game called mount and blade warband but I got it through steam so I don't think it could be that. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
I am currently running windows 7 home premium
I had the same problem last month. I spent two weeks trying every suggestion I found on the internet. I was sure it was a virus, because so many users had the same problem. I finally took it to a computer repair shop, and it needed a new inverter. I never suspected a hardware problem. The charge was $25 for parts and $75 for labor, but the inverter was a used part.
