    screen stopped working


    hi, yesterday i opened my laptop because i was going to put an ssd in it and i wanted to see where the hard drive was and i succeeded in that but when i try to boot it up, my screen doesnt work anymore it just stays black and all the lights work and if i connect an external monitor it just gives a black screen but it detects an input so i think something is wrong with the videocard or something, i fixed a couple of laptops so i am comfortable working on mine, any tips please??



    thanks.

    Have you tried lessening control alt and delete to see if the tsk manager pops up? If do your screen still works but there is something wrong with windows 8 . Had the same thing with a desktop. You can also see during startup if any message appears on the screen
