    Was working fine. Started watching a movie on it and the screen went blank after about 12 minutes into it. Turn it back on and the screen is just black. No boot up sounds or anything but the battery light and some other light are working. Doesn't load the thinkpad boot screen or anything.

    Plug up external vga monitor to it make sure the lcd hasn't died. If you get nothing at all, yank the battery out and hold in the power button to drain out the power for a couple mins. Plug it back in and turn it on & if you still get nothing probably other serious issues wrong.
