Sounds like the monitor turns off as soon as it enters Windows.
Thought about rebooting the system entirely?

It's a very long shot but sometimes discharging the motherboard can unstick things. Turn off, remove power and main laptop battery. Hold the power Off/On button down for at least 20 seconds. Re-assemble and see if it helps.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If that doesn't fix it, does the screen always go black at exactly
the same point during boot, or does it sometimes go black a bit
sooner and sometimes a bit later? If it always happens at the
same point, what is the last thing you see?

Can you get to safe mode using the F8 boot menu or does it go dark before then?

Rebooting is just turning the computer off then on again. I assume you meant factory restore.
