The number of these i have fixed..... i'm 95% sure its the backlight, though it could have some underlying issues with the connectors on the motherboard, and a slight possibility of it being the graphics chipset, check if its under warranty with compaq, if it is have them walk you through thier troubleshooting, and have it sent off to them, they will get ya fixed and on your way, try a power cycle though. pop out the battery and pull out the cord,then hold the power button down for a minute and put the battery and ac adapter back in, if it dont work call compaq. :D cheers

My screen is extremely dark. barely visible. external monitor works ok.


You probably have a bad LCD panel back-light. Time for the repair shop. Probably not worth repair though. Unless you have warranty or extended warranty.

Could also be an inverter board ... which supplies the high voltage for the back-light.

Compaq laptop with dark screen


It is possible that the problem is in the video card - that it's just not turning on the backlight. But it's so much more common for it to be the backlight or inverter that I'd try to get a second opinion.

Compaq V2000 Screen went dark


Have you try external monitor? If it's still same, the LCD screen back light or the inverter of the LCD screen was faulty, but yours most likely the inventor of the LCD screen was faulty, it's only can be repaired by components level tech.

Your backlight is probably burned out. It is repairable, but I recommend having a computer repair shop take care of it.

Your LCD backlight is not working. It is fixable but it is not a repair I would recommend to the typical user. The reason is that you have to disassemble a fairly good portion of the laptop to access the light source and/or the electrical components that control it. If you have excellent attention to detail, patience, experience with the disassembly and handling of electronics and the tools then give it a try. It is also important to also realize that by doing it yourself you risk the real possibility of damaging your laptop beyond economic repair then it may also be worth a try. Otherwise I would strongly suggest you take your laptop to the local authorized repair shop.
