I have a Toshiba Satellite :655D-S5093. I replaced the screen about 9 months ago. Today while I was online, the display suddenly showed some lines. I shut down the computer but when I tried to put it back on, black screen. I can hear the fan running, so it powers up , just no display Also no "lights" on my caps lock or num lock key. I tried hooking it up to external moniter and hitting FN + F5 but it does not come on... I went to geek squad in best buy and they said probably the screen , but how can they tell without "opening up the computer. If it was just the screen why wouldn't the external monitor work? help please!!

Hello

If the external monitor works, it is your screen. If the external monitor does not work it would be your graphic card.
