    Yeah, graphics chip or possibly video cable to the TFT (these can break as they are part of the hinge usually).

    Do you even get any text when the computer boots up or is it broken right from the start?

    You can also test by plugging a monitor into the laptop and seeing if it's able to display on that.

    Well I think you'll have to say goodbye to the laptop then. But just incase, try a monitor.

    It's fixed. Samsung could replace it if it's under warranty, but otherwise the repair would cost more than a replacement. You can get your hard drive out though and via an adaptor connect it to another computer to transfer any data.
