Q: Hello I accidentally dropped my computer and now the screen is black, but if I point to the screen with a flash light I’m able to see what’s going on the screen. Please help me! Thank you

    It looks like the back light for your screen has died. It can be replaced. However if your laptop was dropped there may also be other items that are broken as well. You may want to have it looked at by a professional. Or to see if anything else is wrong you can hook it up to a external monitor and make sure all other parts of the laptop work and then determine if it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
