try using a dif monitor like the tv and see if you have a pic there first

Laptop has a set of Function key (F1 to F12) one of these is screen swap, usually F10, old the Fn key and press F10. Good Luck

Cannot get a pic on a different monitor, may be knackered?

sound like you have a big problem

Remove battery and unplug the mains for 1 minute. Plugging the main adapter in only, hold down the power button for 10 seconds and then try turning it on as usual.

Sounds like GPU, or MB failure?
