Answers :

Hi there
The fact that you can see a faint image on the screen indicates that the inverter or the inverter coil has gone, even possibly the connector has worked loose behind the bezel (the plastic that surrounds the screen).
You say you have only had it for around six months? If you bought it brand new and you still have the receipt it is still covered under the manufacturers warranty, so i would send it back for repairs.
Make sure you back all your data up using the external for now before sending it back as it will return to you set back to factory.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
Sounds like the lcd screen has gone out . Hopefully you still havea warranty on it. But a good way to test if its the lcd screen or the graphics card is to hook it up to a external monitor and see if the pitcure comes up if it does then its the lcd if it doesnt then its the graphics or motherboard itself
