Answers :

Make sure you have not accidentally used the FN+F5 key
\015\012That combination sets the laptop to use an external display.
\015\012
\015\012If using that does not give you a display take a small torch (flashlight if in USA) and shine it at an angle on the laptop screen.
\015\012If you can see any sort of picture you would be looking at replacement of some minor parts to the laptop screen

Thank you
It just happened to my wife's 610. Checking around the web, I found lots of handy info. The screen has a backlight which apparently is sort of tightly attached to the screen. The backlight is a fluorescent tube driven by inverter. Problems can be due to the fluorescent tube dying or the inverter that drives it failing. (Of course, you should check that an external monitor works; if not it's probably the graphics hardware, which may mean a new motherboard. It also could be a dirty shutoff switch (the little button that gets depressed when the lid is closed). My wife's machine works intermittently, and I'm hoping it's the inverter, which I probably can replace myself. Good luck, if you still have it now (3 yrs later). Here's an excellent link:
