Its as if the screen thinks the laptop is closed. If I open it to 40 degrees it works. I can see the screen (all be it from a weird angle). But if I open it past 45 degrees it goes dark. I can still barely see the image on the screen. Just no light behind it. It seems to me this is a physical problem with the hinges that turn it off when opened.
