Can you see anything when the laptop first starts to boot up?
Can you see anything if you shine a flashlight across the screen at a sharp angle?

The backlight is broken (since you can see the stuff with a flashlight). That's a repair that'll have to be done by someone who knows their way around the innards of a laptop.

It could have been jostled a few times. The wires to it could have become pinched and broke. Who knows
