    Sounds like the ribbon cable to the screen has worked loose?

    It's a hardware problem and if you aren't comfortable opening the case, seek qualified repair. I assume, of course, that any warranty has expired. If you have some kind of buyer protection in place contact them.

    Ugh. Did you try opening it up again and rechecking the connections? Another thing to consider is to get a replacement battery, which you can find at a lot of online sites.
