Compaq 12xl300 notebook display issue

I have a Compaq 12XL300 laptop which was working great but one day the display went blank. the display is on when i turn the computer on but blank and turns off when i hold the power button to power off the computer. can you provide troubleshooting steps to correct this issue? i have opened the computer and have not found any evidence of loose connections, burnt components or even a hint of burnt component smell. can you help?

Failing Laptop Cmos battery and need bigger HD

As a general rule of thumb , the CMOS battery can be found underneath the keyboard. The keyboard can generally be removed by inserting a screwdriver into the thing gap at each side at the top and then gently lifting the meyboard up. Be careful with the cables connecting the keyboard to the motherboard though!

I cannot find a removal guide for the hard drive. However , look for a slot or cover on the side of the laptop , similar in size to your cd drive. Then turn the laptop up side down and unscrew one of the screws thats somewhere near the slot or cover , remove the cover and slide the drive out, If you can get the cover off but not get the drive to slide out , try unscrewing another screw as most laptops have a few screws holding the cover on and another to release the drive.

Highspeed internet connect vs dial up

Your laptop should have wireless and the best way to check is on either the front/left/right side of the laptop their is a switch that says wireless flick it to the side that says on... If you don't their should be a name above each of the inputs so look for the one that says something like internet/Ethernet or just plug into the ones that fit it and see if you get connected.
