The back light may have died. m 0 l WR2 a c 572 D Laptop a b C Monitor July 3, 2012 3:53:25 PM Hold the laptop near a lamp or shine a flashlight on the screen. Can you make out any images? If yes, the LCD's LED backlight is bad. If no, there maybe a more serious problem. You should be able to hook up an external monitor and have it display what should be on the laptop screen if it's just a bad backlight or bad LCD screen. m 0 l melindac July 3, 2012 4:58:04 PM There is nothing on the screen. I have an external monitor but will need to get an adaptor to hook it up to the laptop. I will try that. If that works, at least she will be able to use her computer. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
