Laptop turns on, screen glitches out, then goes completely black.
Today when trying to turn on my laptop, the ASUS loading screen appeared, flickered, then went completely dark, emitting no light whatsoever. I tried shining a flashlight onto the display and couldn’t see anything at all. It’s completely dark.
The laptop itself runs fine. I tested by connecting to an external device. If the screen manages to stay lit and flickering long enough before going black, the picture will display just fine on the tv. Furthermore, the touch screen still works while hooked up to the HDMI. The display, however, remains completely dark. If I use fn + f7 to turn it off and then on, the screen comes back on, flickers, then goes dark just like on start up.
My graphics card is up to date and I don’t believe it is a backlight or inverter problem. Is there any idea what it could be and how I could go about fixing it?
