I don't remember if you need to use the hot keys (function-f7(f5?)) or what ever it may be on that LT, if you will get video to an external monitor on boot up. You might try turning it on, letting the activity slow or stop and then use the hot keys to swap the video to external. If you do have external video could be the back light on the LCD. If you cannot get external video or see even the faintest image on the lcd (might try a flashlight?) your video card may be out. Hope for an intact warranty. Or check around for repairs.
