The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Acer laptop will not boot up


Dead (ish) Laptop.

Press the power button momentarily to check if it is hibernating or in stand by. If this doesn't work;

Try firstly removing the laptop's battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any further.
If the adaptor is fine and the laptop still won't start, then you may have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.

The laptop would not boot up. It was hooked up to an external screen and then a few hours later, there was nothing on the screen. It wont boot up into a POST screen

Compaq presario 2200 screen stay dark


sounds like the inverter has gone, the only way to test this is to remove the laptop lid, remove the bezel (front plastic cover) please take care not to crack or splitt the plastics, then get an electical tester and test the inverter coil to make sure a current runs through it, if it doesn't its the coil, if it does you need a new inverter, the coil is located under the plastic sheath

good luck

Screen/ video display is dark.


Sounds like a backlight or inverter problem or both. Most likely the backlight in the display panel. Unless you know how to open your laptop and if needed the and the display panel I would take it in to a professional. If you are able to do it yourself you can make sure that everything is plugged in properly. And test the components inside. You can replace these parts which are not very expensive. But if you have not be inside a laptop I would take it into a local shop for repair.
