Dell inspiron 2200 - screen is black

\015 My laptop was not charging right and I noticed the plug wasn't sitting tightly, so I bought a new charger. The day I got it, I plugged it in and it started to charge. I turned it on and it loaded up fine, all icons and everything. I turned it off and let it sit a few hours to finish charging. When I turned it back on, it started to boot up and then the screen turned pitch black. I turned it off, and on again, but still black. What might cause this? Is this something I can try to fix myself? Or can have fixed at a decent price? I'm not sure if the charger is just a coincedence or if it caused a short or something. I don't know much about computers. I've had it a few years, not sure the avg life span on one of these, but it's always worked well for the web surfing I use it for so I'm hoping fixing is an option rather than pitching it. Thanks in advance if you can help me.\015

Sounds like your graphics card has died on ya. If it is on board graphics with no expansion slots for a card you'll have to get another motherboard. If it has expansion slots for graphics you could find out what is compatible and buy one. as far as installation. I would have someone with knowledge about these things to install it...Hope this helps
