Unable to start up computer. Black screen and unresponsive


I have a toshiba satellite l350d laptop and earlier today for some reason the screen went black while I was using it. No back light or anything. I figured it just shut down due to over heating because it was pretty hot underneath. But the fan was still running and the power, battery and cd drive lights were still on. I tried shutting it down by holding the power button but it is completely unresponsive. So I waited until the battery ran out. I booted up my computer but the screen remained dark and only the lights and fan turned on. I know I should be posting my computer specs but I don't know what they are at the moment.

Hopefully there is a easy fix for this

I don't know how old your laptop is, but I have seen a screen go dark before. And that is an indication the screen is dead. Sorry to be the bearer of "possibily" bad news, but this is apparently common for laptops--over time. My preference would be a Dell, but thats just me. Perhaps someone else in this jury would claim an "objection" to my analysis of the problem. I rest my case.

do you have a desktop monitor to try? If so plug it in to see if it works.
