i am new on here mate, try connecting a vga cable to laptop and monitor to see if you can use quickly to recover your thesis, or at least just see if the problem is screen only,then just go from there

Hello

Jon has a good suggestion, however, try this:

Remove the battery and cable.
Press and hold the power button for 57 seconds, no less.
Put the charged battery back and boot.

Good luck

What is your master's thesis about ? Just curious as you may change the world.
