Do you know for a fact that the screen is dead? Or it is just that you dont see any graphics? For instance, my issue with my laptop is that after rebooting normally or even in safe-mode the screen would turn black or blank. Are you able to logging normally or in safe-mode? If you do, please check in your Device Manager that all drivers are up to date. 1. Click the windows logo (left hand side bottom corner) 2. Right click COMPUTER, then MANAGE, DEVICE MANAGER (left hand side) then (to the right) DISPLAY ADAPTERS. Click on the little plus sign and there you'll find your display adapter of your laptop. Right click on and update the driver. Keep us posted of the results.
