Greetings. I have had this problem on a similar machine. Although I have not found the final solution I can help you narrow down the possible problem.

Do you have an external monitor?

When you connect the monitor and turn the laptop on freshly does the external display anything?

If the external monitor does show your desktop, you may need to install drivers for your card which Ubuntu can help you with under the additional drivers section.

These are basic things which may save you hours of trouble shooting.
