Hi
Sometimes the simplest things could save the day :)..See if the brightness is not all the way down.
Or do this:
Turn on your mac.
After the welcome system sound,press the Power / OFF button once – this will bring up the dialog box which you can’t see.
Press the “S” button – this is the shortcut to sleep the Mac.
Hold down the Power button until a hard shut down is forced.
Wait about 15 seconds, then hit the Power button again to turn it back on.
Tell me if this doesn't work,I have other solutions too.
Thanks
