Answers :

I am a computer tech and it sounds like the cable that connects your screen to your computer has come loose, or is going bad.  You will want to open the computer (carefully) which may take a while and please be careful with it and remember where the screws go.  But there are pads on the front of the scrreen take those off and unscrew the screws, and then open it up carefully prying it open with a screwdriver, be careful because the plastic breaks easily.  and then there will be a wire connecting monitor to a port thingy, and then make sure it is snug in there be carefull with this though.  If you put it all back together and it still doesn't work you need to buy a new screen just look up your computer model number and order one off the internet.
