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.
