I stumbled on this forum looking for an answer to an issue I faced with my laptop today.
My laptop was running slow and shutting down due to overheating by itself so a friend recommended I clean out the fan and heatsink. I opened it up (unscrewing the bottom) and clean out the fan with some cottonsticks and a vaccumcleaner. When I closed it back up the screen has stopped working. It still turns on and off fine, goes to standby when I close the lid, goes to windows, allows me to login with my password etc. makes the windows sound everything, but the screen remains blank.
I really can't afford to buy a new laptop and taking it to the repair shop would probably cost just as much, so any advice would be welcome.
Thanks in advance.
