What what?

Does anything come up on the screen at all?

Can you use an external monitor on your laptop?

Maybe its not booting to the HDD. Check your bios and to test it set HDD as 1st boot.
Did u try going into safe mode?
What makes u think screen is damaged? any recent changes done to the laptop?

OK wait to see how that goes, that way we can determine if it is the screen or something else

my old lappy did this, turned out was on..fully booted up just something had gone to make it light up properly (making the screen black)..twidling with the battery lead seemed to help, so a problem with its power.

not suggesting yours is the same, but hopefully its as simple and easy to fix!
