The fastest way to eliminate the video section of your PC is to use the VGA port with an external monitor. If you can get any kind of video, then the problem is narrowed down to either the fluorescent backlight itself or the inverter that supplies it with high voltage; neither of these have any influence on the video output to an external monitor. The LCD section itself can't really fail at once since it is made up of tiny pixels and while it isn't uncommon for indivdual ones to fail, the likelihood that all fail is very remote.  
The problem is; without some technical skills, it would be tough to pin it down to one of these two. The backlight tube is a specially formed fluroescent and if it appears to be blackened at either or both ends, then the tube is dead. If it appears pristine, then the inverter is dead; this is normally a small board apart from the main board and not too bad to replace.
Accessing the backlight is of varying degrees of difficulty and if it isn't done carefully, you could damage the LCD portion.
If it seems to boot OK, if you peer at the screen from several shallow angles, you should be able to see some 'ghost' activity on the screen.

Power up computer...hear the windows jingle but the screen is grey


Try connecting an external monitor and see if that gives you video - if that works, your laptop screen may have gone bad and need replacing. If it does not work, check that you are not running in too dark a screen or the wrong mode. I dont know specifically which HP key code changes this but there should be pictures on your "F" keys to indicate this. Remember to push down the"Fn" key at the same time.

Ihave an hp pavillion laptop where the screen went black and need a solution to fix


First hook a spare monitor to the video output jack usually on the back, if picture comes up! it indicates a bad inverter board, or the backlight has stopped working, if the spare shows the same problem, it means the video graphics card is defective and normally built into the motherboard.

Check screen brightness.
On keyboard is normally activated by combined FN + Fx keys (F9 or F10).
Check your keytops and/or your user manual.
Using this feature you should be able to restore a standard contrast on your screen.
If it isn't working the only alternative is external monitor.

Screen dim to black


This will be a problem with either the screen inverter or screen backlight. You will need to take it to a shop for diagnosis, in order to find out which one it is. If it turns out to be the backlight, then the entire screen will have to be replaced. They are considered a sealed unit, and the backlight can't be changed out.
