Keywords that helped me were "laptop screen backlight clug". Of course, if you knew the details of the conversation you could include "doris" as well.

Short version for Eyal is: "yes, you can check if the screen is functioning by shining a bright light onto it". In fact, that's how I used to use my laptop to save battery: turn off the backlight, sit in the Sun (but that was back in the days of my PowerBook 160, when colour LCDs were rare and expensive).
