You have to remove the keyboard. Most laptops have the keyboard screws at the bottom or underside of the pc and right next to the screw hole is a little keyboard picture thing or illustration that tells you that screw is to hold down the keyboard. once the keyboard is removed, you can easily get the LCD screen wires disconnected.
This is typically caused by a loose cable inside of your screen. I do not suggest tinkering with it as you could possibly damage it more. In case you're feeling brave, here's a guide on how to get to the LCD on your model of laptop:
It may be the cable that attaches behind the screen is loose. If you type in your model# and "lcd replacement" in Google you will often find a tutorial on how to take it apart. Patience though our you will break something!
Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.
The problem you are describing can be caused by a couple of things ranging from a loose connection (< $100) to a faulty component (>$100). If you take it into your local repair shop they should be able to give you a decent estimate before actually working on it. If you work on it yourself you save money on labor, however, you?ll probably spend a lot of time.
Compaq used to have a program where you would pay a flat fee, ship them your old laptop and then would ship you a working one.
Sorry I couldn?t give you a better answer but without having the laptop in front of me it isn?t possible to give a closer estimate.
