Re: Screen will not stay upright, can it be fixed?
Hi! This solution is very late, but I just came across the original post. Maybe it will still do you some good.
You need to replace the display hinges. There are vendors online who sell them (www.blueraven.com for one) but they are expensive. Right now there is a vendor on eBay offering a set cheap. If you see this solution soon enough, check it out here.

sounds like a bad screen this might be able to be remedied by hooking the laptop straight to a computer monitor threw the ports provided in the back
also you could have bumped something loose inside like a video card if any cards or memmory comes loose this will give you black screen of death the laptop will have to opened and cards pressed down gently
theres the solution of your power supply on the laptop went out and you need a replacement
if power supply went out it doesnt hurt your comp it just makes it hard to run
You need to reboot using the first disc in the series. Make sure that the AC adapter is plugged in, and check your bios settings and disable any power managment settings, in order to prevent the machine from going into standby, sleep, etc.
You should be able to make it through the entire series. If you can't, you may need to contact HP for a new set of discs, or if you have an HP authorized service provider, such as a Staples, Best Buy, etc; they can usually get the CDs a lot faster, and usually at the same cost, or maybe a little higher.
you could try booting on battery instead of mains and see what happens, also could the screen be switched off ? If you have access to another monitor, you could try plugging it in to see if the video output is ok. ( some laptops have a facility to switch off the screen display for security etc )
First, are you sure it's the backlight and not the "inverter" or the motherboard not turning on the "brite" signal ?
Any way, to fix the backlight, you have to remove the screen from the laptop (in most cases) and then open the screens plastic case. Then, there should be a little circuit board at the bottom of the screen;that's the inverter.Disconnect both wires from it (there should be wires on each side of it).Now remove the screws holding the screen in the plastic case and lift out the screen.At the bottom edge of the screen,you'll find a piece of silver / metallic tape. remove this tape CAREFULLY . Also on the bottom edge there are tiny ( I MEAN TINY) screws at each end of the screen.Remove these carefully lift the metal cover along the bottom of the screen and the backlight is underneath this cover.
