I ran some diagnostics on it (one through the BIOS and also through the Lenovo Companion tool) and there doesn't seem to be any kind of hardware issues. I can actually use the computer normally (open up applications, use the keyboard & mouse). I did try the VGA and mini display port to test out the picture on an external monitor but that did not work.
I had a few ideas of what could be potentially the suspect:
- GPU got fried
LCD screen clonked out
