  1. Find Where Your Graphic Card located (asuming your computer has a separate card for video .
  2. \015\012
  3. Check the connection from your display to your video card (these connections are very thin wires running all the way to the video card or the MB).
  4. \015\012
  5. If the second step is clarified then have your graphic card checked. or have *********** Board chip set checked for bios and fermware.
Mostly you have a connection problem.
The screen's backlight lamp(s) is bad. I had a laptop do this before but already another better laptop so never attempted. It has either one or two backlight lamps and very difficult to change. Here's a link to show you what it is, it's up to you whether you think you can fix it or worth paying a shop to do.  LINK:   http://www.laptopparts101.com/screen-backlight-ccfl-lamp/
