Blank/black screen after shutdown (Laptop)

  FatDevil 18:36 18 May 2017

I had just installed garry's mod, and started it (While downloading (Counter strike: Source). My computer just froze, while I could hear my buddies talk on teamspeak. But i couldn't do anything, not even use "ctrl + alt + delete". So i thought the only option after about 5 min. was to force close it. Though after i force closed it, it and my laptop turned its lights on. The screen wouldn't show any picture, even though the monitor is turned on (The screen became lighter). I tried closing my computer 2 times more (Force closing, since i couldn't see anything on the screen). I let it dry out of power, and turn it on again, which didn't help. I tried taking out the battery, power-cable, and all USB connected devices. And insert the battery and power-cable again, and turn on the laptop, but it didn't help. Though i can use an external monitor, and when i turn my laptop monitor off, i can see the screen stop being blank, and instead be turned off. I have also tried checking if the backlight is dead with a flashlight, but I havn't been avaiable to see anything. Meaning that it isn't the backlight that is dead. Anyone having an idea how to fix this? Sry for my bad english

If it works with a monitor plugged in, could you try pressing the 'Windows Key' + P keys. Could you just try duplicate option and see if it displays on the monitor as well?

Sry, it is already on duplicate, and have already tried switching around with all of the options

Hmm... that's strange, could you get to the screen resolution settings and see if you can do extended mode or display on the laptop screen only!?

Sry for the long answer time, i feel asleep :/. Well as said i have tried the other options, which include trying to display on only the laptop screen, which didn't help. - FatDevil
