Change some of the power settings. You can do this in control panel - Power Options.

Try an external monitor with it.
If it works fine with an external monitor, it's probable that your backlight or the voltage inverter that supplies it with high voltage has a problem - it's most likely the backlight.

Laptop no video (or video problems), and battery, AC adapter, power jack T shooting.

See response 1:

DO NOT plug in or unplug a monitor's video cable into / from a video port while the computer is running. Doing so can damage the monitor's circuits and/or the video adapter's circuits.

Some laptops will display on an external monitor without you having to do anything.

If you get no video on an external monitor, some laptops have a key combo that you must press to toggle the display to external video only / built in display video only / sometimes both - see the Owner's or User's manual for the model.
