Windows 7: Boots up fine, black screen.

Boots up fine, black screen.

My asus n73jq boots up, I hear it start windows, all lights that should be on are on.
The whole time my screen is black, no mouse cursor nothing.

This happens now after I restarted my notebook because the graphics were garbled. Just restarts with a black screen. I can see that the screen light up to a lighter shade of black but it stays black.

So far I've done the battery out power button thing, reseated the ram. I couldn't get to my gpu though.

I will try another monitor shortly, but I am pretty stumped.

Two weeks ago i installed a new hard drive. I have installed all necessary drivers. It worked fine for he last two weeks. Some weird graphics while playing minecraft, one restart and black screen now. I don't get it.

i installed the newest nvidia driver there was. no dice. tried to do a system restore. didnt work either. it actually failed with an unspecified error?

I will try to figure out how to roll back my bios as i updated that driver a week ago..

the only problem is i cant get into bios to check anything because the monitor i hooked my notebook up to doesnt turn on until i am in windows.
when i try pressing fn+8 to swap monitors both go black until i swap back.

fn+f7 to turn the lcd screen on and off gives me either a black (off) screen or a slightly lighter black (on) screen
