I really dont know what the trouble is, and I was wondering if someone could help me with this. Recently, when I start my computer up it freezes completely and a line of static shoots across the screen. And now when I start it up, the screen is completely black with no backlight, etc. at all. Is this a virus or an internal problem?

Have you tested the monitor with another computer?

Plug your laptop into a desktop monitor and see if you get any picture.

If your computer itself is locking up and killing the screen, its sounds like a issue with your video card, or, less likely IMO, the video cable going into the monitor.

Has your laptop been dropped at all recently?

I've seen something similar to this happen in some of the Dell laptops that I've had to service in the past couple of weeks. In those instances I had to replace the mobo and the laptop worked just fine after that.

Just out of curiosity what brand laptop are you using?

If its under warrantee through Dell then I would recommend contacting them to see what can be done about fixing it. Depending on your warrantee you could either get a tech to come onsite to repair it or have to send it off to the depot to have it serviced.

I'm betting on a faulty mobo and/or graphics card.

I would say that your best hope at the moment would be to take the laptop into a professional shop somewhere, and have them look at it and let them try to diagnose the problem.
