If by lights, you mean the LED lights located around the exterior of the laptop (like the power light, hard drive light, etc.) then you may have accidentally switched those off.

First you need to locate the 'FN' key. On most laptops it's located on the bottom left of the keyboard, under the 'shift' key.

Next you will need to look for a symbol on the keyboard that would represent the LEDs. It's usually a light bulb, and is almost always located on the 'Fx' keys on the top of your keyboard (F1, F2, F3, etc.).

Once you have located the correct key, you need to hold the 'fn' key that we found earlier, and press the 'Fx' key that corresponds to the LED (or light bulb) button.

For example, on a older model Gateway laptop, I will hold the 'FN' key on the bottom left, and press 'F1'.

If by lights you mean the backlighting for the LCD screen, which would make the LCD screen appear very dim, then you will have to have the screen serviced or replaced.

I hope that helps, and if you have any questions, please let me know.

This isn't a desktop PC by the way. Do any of the lights come on? If not, try to run the laptop from the AC power. If the lights come on but no display, then your backlight or inverter on the LCD panel for your V5000 might be bad.

Pull out the battery and replace it again. Then power it on again. If the problem persists, you will need to have the motherboard, processor and RAM checked by appropriate technical personnel. Any of these could be responsible.
