Laptop Screen doesn't work, No Backlight

Merry Christmas Team.

My little brother came home from work one night and now is screen doesn't work at all. no flickering, backlight etc. I connected it top the TV via HDMI and even that didn't show up anything.

How high are the chances that his graphics card has died?

Cheers
Gameover.

There aren't really graphics cards in laptops, they are built in to the motherboard. So, if it isn't displaying anything even when on the bios or start screen, it may be the motherboard that is bad.

If it was a back light fault you'd still see a very faint image if you hold the screen at the right angle.

Is it even posting? If it doesn't beep is there still hdd activity?
