Hi TechAspire,

Hope your exam did pass well. :) Are you still having problems with your laptop screen? The first thing that comes up in my mind is to plug an HDMI or VGA cable and to connect your laptop to an external monitor or TV. If you can see an image on external display, but not on the laptop display, I guess the problem might be found within the screen itself.
If you can't see a thing on an external display, but your laptop is still working just not showing anything, then the problem that you have may be due to the failure of the video chip. Sometimes, after much of a use and less cooling the graphics processor which is responsible for video signal transmission gets unsoldered, the thermic paste goes away and it gets unsoldered, therefore the screen doesn't show anything. If you possess knowledge of notebooks' hardware you can change the paste yourself by opening the laptop and check if the chipset that is next to the processor has got unsoldered or you can bring your laptop to a technician to get it soldered again.

Hope that I helped.
