Macbook Screen Isn't Working

My 4/5 yr. old mac screen isn't working.
It all started when a spiral notebook was compressed to the screen, which we later found completely messed the screen up! It was then given to Best Buy for solutions, which was then shipped to Apple. By the time we got it back, the screen worked temporarily. We could adjust the screen at a certain angle to get it to display, and at the time that was ok. After a few more months of that, we finally decided to get that fixed too. THAT time, when we got it back, it worked...for a while...After a few weeks, the screen just never displayed anything. We can tell that by turning it on, the macbook is still running with the usual startup sounds, and clicking noises the sound buttons make can be heard, and the capslock light is running efficiently.
(I'm kind of a noob at this, so excuse me if I post this in the wrong thread/do something inaccurately. Guild me if you must.)
Things I've Tried:
Adjusting Screen Angle(obviously)

G'day and welcome to the forums.
Great excuse to get a new one. Five year old not worth investment of a new screen. Keep everything well out the way when closing.Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
