No picture on my laptop screen.

Specs: Windows XP
im using a Satellite l305D laptop and when i power it up there is no picture or backlight on the lcd screen. it powers up and the power light comes on but there is no sound from the speakers of it booting up. i can hear the fan and hard drive working. i have tried switching out the RAM with another toshiba and same thing happened. i also hooked it up to an external display and used the F5 button to switch to external display but still nothing. ive opened it and checked all the connections and they seem fine so im thinking its the graphics card. Please help!

PS. also the problem started while i was playing a game. the screen went completely white and then black with no backlight. i got it to start up again after a few tries turning it on and off and then the screen turned black again and i havent been able to get it working again.

Try this:

Unplug the power cord
Remove the main large battery
Hold the ON button in for 20secs
Put the powered power cord back in (leave the battery out)
Turn on

Did it work?
If so, shutdown normally and refit the battery
You're good to go :)
