Question about HP Mini 1000 Netbook
The laptop powers up on battery but displays faint screen, However, it displays correctly on AC adapter
The problem is that its set in the power saving options. i mean on battery its set to power saver . while on power adapter it changes to hp recomended or high perfomance. So if you want to change it go to the right bottom of your screen and click the battery symbol it should give you the option to 1> change screen brightness 2>more power options. Go to more power options and select "change plan settings" beside the power saver.(not the one beside the other options) and change ur brightness. but its always better to keep it at ur minimum(with what ur comfortable) as its helpful to save battery

Testimonial: "Tnx. I reset to default setting and the problem is gone"
Laptops reduce the brightness when on battery power to conserve battery power. You can still adjust the screen brightness, the brighter the screen the less battery life you will have.

It is either the inverter board or the bulb
If it looks pink in color than it is the bulb and that can be quite the intensive project to replace
If it is the inverter board than that is not so bad and you can pick up an inverter board on eBay usually for around $10 to $20 and that usually installs right under the LCD screen (usually screwed to the LCD screen)
The inverter board is what powers the light bulb the data cable is totally separate function.
If you can see data on the screen with a flashlight but there is absolutely no light coming from the screen at all ever than it is probably just the inverter board
But there is a possibility that you could order the inverter board and have it turn out to be the bulb and if that is the case then unless you are very comfortable taking apart laptops then maybe a new screen would be best since you practically have to take apart the LCD to change the bulb.
But screen cost around 100 to 150 on eBay so if you decide to do that then might as well try for a deal like this: (I just spotted this on eBay and it is for entire new top half of laptop with glossy screen and inverter board wire harness and all for the same price or less than just the screen http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-dv1000-Pavilion-14-1-BrightView-Glossy-LCD-screen_W0QQitemZ310102538774QQihZ021QQcategoryZ31569QQssPageNameZWD1VQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting
That is guaranteed to solve your problem for sure.

"......no beeps and it is a 3rd party charger for this model of laptop."
That 3rd party adapter could be the problem. Also, try to take out the battery and power it up from AC adapter only.
Ideally, try to find original AC adapter just for testing.

Pressing the f8 key doesn't work either? This should boot the laptop to safe mode, if it doesn't then check the memory cards before you do anything else, try to get somebody with the same type of memory card to lend it to you. If that doesn't work, then your HDD is corrupted, and to re-install Windows.

Check your mains adapter plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.
