Try an external screen - if it shows a good image, it is likely a bad display panel (and/or backlight, part of the display).

If not, it's a bad video chip - - and you'll need to replace the mainboard.

I tried an external monitor, but that failed, so im assuming its a bad Display panel or Motheroboard

If you can't get an image externally, you may simply want to look for a working system - these come with either Intel video or nVidia -- the latter are the problematic ones, as the chips have a well known design flaw.  Most have failed by now.

These systems sell in the $30-100 price range on EBay - making buying a replacement board not quite an economic exercise.

Well i fixed the black screen at boot, fairly simple for me all i had to do was press the FN key while pressing the F8 so-----> FN + F8 = Fixed....
