Hello everyone,

The problem: -The screen is just black, dont make sounds and anything.

Either one of two things, either the screen is blown out, which means you are going to need to install a new one, or the RAM is blown out, and you need to replace the sticks.

If you have spare RAM that you are certain works, then you should try to see if a switch will render new results. If not then you might need to replace the screen, which is a big pain, but still less expensive than buying a new laptop. But if you don't know what you are doing, and you aren't comfortable doing hardware that much, I'd recommend going to a shop and letting them replace the screen for you, might be able to save yourself a few bucks by checking only for spare parts.

Worse come to worse it might even be a motherboard problem though. Honestly there aren't too many ways to tell though, the images you gave are kind of useless IMO.

What were the last working conditions of the laptop?

Maybe the cable is disconnected.

Actually, try hooking up an external monitor and see if you get any visual, that is an easy test to see if the screen is blown.

I believe f+power is the diagnostic test for LED screen functionality, or hook it up to a monitor.
