To get to the recovery partition on your Compaq Armada M700, turn on the notebook and press F11 repeatedly until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. Then, follow the on-screen instructions.

Try running the LCD Bist Diagnostics. Press and hold the key while powering the system on. This will start the Preboot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics which includes a test for the LCD.
In the process of running the PSA, if the graphics test error (0334 or 0333) is given and the user presses "Y" to continue testing, the LCD BIST will begin. During the LCD BIST, a solid color screen is shown and 5 different colors are displayed. While the colors are displayed, the system beeps every two seconds and the lock lights (Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock) illuminate to indicate that the test is running. This can be used to determine if something is wrong with the display.
While running this test, the LCD is operating on its own, free of the video controller which may be discrete (a video card) or onboard (on the system board). The test allows you to tell an LCD panel problem from a problem with the controller. If the colors are displayed across the screen without a problem then the issue lies outside of the LCD.

its in neither its a seperate circuit board that connects the screen to the motherboard and its called an inverter
you will need the correct inverter board for your laptop and will need to find the relevant instructions on how to replace / repair it and take care and have lots of patience and persistence as it can be fiddly
