My Laptop Screen Went Black

[ Edited ]

Hello. I have a Toshiba Satellite  L455D-S5976.  It has Windows 7. 

 

I was pinning Character Map to my taskbar, and my screen just went completely black like it was turned off.

 

Details; I know it's not a virus, I know I didn't adjust the screen brightness, it's not the battery, my system indicator lights are on.

 

Do I need to buy a whole new screen?

unplug the laptop and remove the battery. hold the power button for atleast 30 seconds. plug it back in and return the battery. this will reset the laptop and may fix the problem.
