try plugging in an external monitor, this will tell if invertor / backlight failed in laptop screen.

Backlight gone it needs a new inverter

Sounds like a duff backlight or inverter.

Do you see anything on the screen during bootup?

OR the plugs may be loose at each end

the windows logo comes on

It comes on as normal, i.e. lit up?

If so your backlight is fine. It's a software issue.

yep Try tapping F8 as computer starts then choose Safe Mode at the top. If you can get into windows Do a System Restore to an old date

When you connect an external monitor you need to press a key combination to switch the display something like Fn + F2, have you done that?
