I have seen various posts about similar problems, though not on Edge E130. Tried their solutions, to no avail.
The screen is black. No faint image. Machine powers up (LEDs glow, noise of fan and hard disk). I have no external video connection. Have tried taking battery out, pressing on button for 1 minute, plugging machine to power (no battery) and restart. No success. Did not initiate any kind of update (certainly not BIOS!), upgrade or new software install (though the machine has been asking to upgrade to Windows 10, which I have not done yet). Running Windows 8.1 (as far as I can remember, as I cannot actually check - the screen is black).
AVG antivirus, updated and fully run about one week ago.

Thank you for your help. I have now connected it to our TV using HDMI, I can see the screen no problem (panic averted there...). Don't really want to go into BIOS without knowing for sure what to do... Would you be able to point me to the right direction?
Also, when I connected it to the TV, I am sure I could see the ThinkPad screen flicker from pitch black to light black. Is this relevant?
