Does the mouse pointer display? If so, can you wander around the screen and see it change to the text-input cursor in one place near the center? If so, does the screen work if you sleep the laptop and then wake it back up again?

If you answered yes to all that.. there may be a workaround -- basically, you teach the computer to reset the video right after it boots.
