I have a toshiba satellite c855d-s5232, i recently upgraded to windows 8 and everything worked fine for a couple weeks. A few days ago i went to use it and i noticed that even though i can hear it start up the screen would turn on but didnt display anything. I have hooked it up to an external monitor and it works just fine... anyone know what the problems can be?

Hello

Try this;

Remove the battery
Unplug the cable
Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds
Replug the cable and start.

Good luck
