I have a mid 2010 Macbook white. I was on it about a half hour ago and the screen just went black. The backlight still turns on, but there's no picture. Ive tried turning it off and on again, and I hear the Mac chime, but no picture. If I wait a while, I can log on, and if I press the volume up and down keys I can hear that noise so I know it still boots into the OS.

I don't have the kind of money to replace this computer right now. Does anyone have any idea what to do? I'm freaking out. I need this for school.

A friend thinks it's an issue with the graphics card. Is there any way to test if he's right without buying the $30 Mini DisplayPort connector? I'd rather not have to buy it, only to find out I'm gonna need to get $1000 for a new computer.

Thanks.


MacBook, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
