2nd time -- black screen

MikembMikemb Posts: 6Member New User
For the second time, my C910-3916 Chromebook went black. Nothing happens when I press keys.  In short the device is dead.

This happened a couple of months ago and despite several attempted fixes, it remained dead until it somehow revived itself after a few days. 

So what is happening?  And how can it be fixed?  Note: Any fix that requires me to access the internet or to do anything else with the Chromebook won't work because all I have is a black screen.

    The fix.  I opened it a couple of times to see if it had recovered.  No.  Then at one point I opened it and accidentally tapped the touch pad and the screen lit up.  So I am happier but no wiser.
