What model is it? How old?
Video drivers have nothing to do with the splash screen if you change video drivers and uninstall your drivers have you ever had a blank screen with no bios? I dont think so ... It sounds more like the backlight is gone or something more hardware related, what happened just before this ? Do you hear the beep of the POST meaning that the portable has completed the POWER ON SELF TEST? If not then again this is a sign that your hardware is in trouble..try to pop out the battery and the memory and then put them back in I have seen portables that wont boot and after removing the battery they have so try with no battery as well. And by battery I mean the the big rechargable one not the cmos meaning there is no need to totaly dismantel the portable in 35 pieces.
I would because I asked you to remove it and replace it and imagine you did not bother to try...
