Burning orange glow inside the corner of the laptop; screen is black

One night, played a long session of GTAV for 12 hours. My laptop gets pretty warm during playing. When I was feeling drowsy, I closed the lid of laptop, but forgot to close the game. I reopened the lid, to see a glowing orange glow and a burning smell from that region in the corner of my laptop in the crack between the keyboard and laptop monitor. I opened up my laptop but saw nothing that looked burned, or blackened.

I tried the main 3 methods already on YouTube that deal with the black screen:

  1. The discharging method didn’t fix the black screen.
  2. The ram stick method didn’t fix the black screen. (However, 3 weeks ago, I did install another 8GB of DRAM)
  3. Using the HDMI cable, the display works with the external monitor. I tried unplugging the HDMI cable to see if it’s a backlight inverter issue. The back light doesn’t appear to be the problem, because I don’t see any faint image on the screen with a flashlight.

I researched at it seems like a black screen could be a variet of issues: motherboard, GPU, backlight inverter, the screen itself, and I believed I narrowed it down to either the screen itself, but am scared to spend $74 for a LCD screen replacement and installing it improperly, when I could by another laptop.

Some more background:

I had small purple streaks/flickering on my screen, when I adjusted the angle of my laptop, for about 6 months, around January 2017. So I am not surpeised that the mnitor suddenly "burned out," but in amore dramatic way than I expected. I have had this laptop since 2014 (for 3 years).

So the laptop turns on? You can hear fans spin up? If you plug it into an external monitor, you can confirm that it still works.

Hi, Connor! Thanks for the prompt reply. Yes. My laptop turns on, and the fans spin, and the LED signalling that the hard drive is operating is on as well. When I plug it into an external monitor, it works.

By the sounds of things you've over heated some component in the display or damaged display cables, at this point I'd recommend a full display replacement. You could try replacing parts, but given it's history with display issues I'd recommend a full replacement.

After a quick google, a replacement display is not an unreasonable price.

Thanks again Connor. I probably did damage the display cables. I'll order a replacement LCD screen and try my best to install it. Thanks for all your help. I'll post later to see if this resolved my issue.

Thanks, Brandon, for replying. I appreciate it. Would my problem still be a video card issue, when it works on an external monitor? The orange glow and the burning might have been from some foam that I placed into the laptop. I am currently using my laptop as I am typing this using an external monitor and HDMI chord.

No it wouldn't work on an external monitor if your GPU was dead.

Thanks Connor! That's what I thought, too, but was not sure and at this point am open to any suggestions.
