Windows 7: Computer has black screen at start, please assist

Windows 7
Computer has black screen at start, please assist

Let me spin a little web for you. It begins with my computer having frequent crashing issues with Starcraft 2, Team Fortress 2, and any other game I play on it. The crashing drove me mad to the point where I just decided to open it up, and put some new heat sink fluid onto the heat sinks.

Now, here is where things get interesting, I got the computer back on but the mouse and keyboard no longer work, I worked my ass of to get the mouse and keyboard to work, and I finally did it. But then the worse happens, my LCD screen goes pitch black. It has the backlight that brightens the screen still, but it still displays nothing. I open the computer (AGAIN) to see what is wrong, and would you believe it, the LCD connector is a bit out of place. (It tips off of one side because it does not go completely inward. So, I took the plug out to find out that some of the tiny golden rods inside of the plug were bent. I straightened them out, and got a good connection in. But, the LCD screen is still black as Mr. Popo from DBZ. Somebody please help me, my life is on that computer and I am low on cash until I get a job, and I cannot get a job without a computer! (Everything is digital, and I am going native)

If you need my specs My computer is a Samsung NP R480 JAN1US
6GB of RAM
Intel I3 processor 2.13 GHz
I believe the video card was 1gb
All drivers were updated before I made this mess.

I am really hoping to solve this problem, if I send this to best buy with my warranty it will take them 3 weeks to fix it, I need a job before In do that so please help.

-Warm Regards Santa Clause, the Ghost of Sparta.

Hello Mastershot, welcome to SF!
What kind of connector is it exactly? Assuming from your story it's the cabel side... can you borrow a cable and try?
