Connect an external display and see if that work

Check if display is set for External display only

Using the “FN” key (Function) and the “CRT/LCD” key look at the top of keyboard “F” keys

Hold down the FN key and press the CRT/LCD key once wait 2 second and than press again

Display will change as follows

Press once laptop display only

Press again external display only

Press again both laptop and external display

You must hold down the FN key each time you press the CRT/LCD key

If you get a display, upgrading the display driver

Try it without the Battery in

If it does not show anything just on mains, your mains adapter as blown. The comp will be just starting with a nearly flat battery, and it will turn off
