So I turn on my laptop, and I get no image on the screen. If I hold down the power button to try and turn it off, a brief image of the desktop will appear, but then it goes black again.

Does this sound like the actual computer or just the screen?

It could be a screen backlight or inverter problem. If you shine a flashlight on the screen and can see an image then I would say backlight or inverter problems.

It could also be turned off by the function key. It's fn + f8 on my laptop to switch between lcd and and external monitor.
