    Does it display anything on boot up?
    Can you go into safe mode?
    If you can get into safe mode, try and disable or delete this 'screen doctor' thing. Or try uninstalling the vid card drivers and re-installing them.
    If you cannot get any display on boot up then you may have a hardware problem.
    Can you borrow a vid card off someone, or try another monitor.
    This may sound extreme but if you have a fair clue about your system setup, then you could try re-setting bios to its defaults, and then going from there.

    If your not already dead yet... don't open up the monitor, at any cost. Believe me. There is a lot of electricity (even when the monitor is off) inside it.

    (If your problem isn't the monitor, then disregard this )
