Is see your problem here.
You are shooting with A mode. That is Aperture priority. In the properties that show u use ISO 200, f5.6 and 1/60. ISO 200 for indoor shot was way to low for indoor shooting without external flash. even your flash doest fire at all. See properties > flash mode. F5.6 will produce dark picture. Use the smallest aperture you can. I believe it can go down until f3.5.
You cant simply hope you will take picture under that setting. Use maximum ISO accepted, I beleive that the D40 can go untill 1600 but at 800 it has produce noise. Set your camera to M mode, shutter to 1/60 (under this your image will blur. I think without flash help this also will blur. hehe) and aperture to F 3.5. Set your internal flash to i-TTL mode.
You must understand that without external flash, you cant simply get well lighted picture indoor. Plus d40 doesnt have VR function. It is advice you buy SB600 for a good companion.
Dont compare a DSLR with Compact. Why compact can take clear picture with its internal flash?? the answer is the sensor size. DSLR use larger sensor rather than compact. These diffrence will appear if you enlarge the picture. Try google for explanation.
hope these help.
