Question about HP Compaq 6715b Notebook
Hi, First push your FN- and the F- button that has the display symbol it may be set to the external screen. Can you see anything on the screen if you hold a flashlight close to it? If so I would say your back light went out and will need to be replaced. If this is not the case, recheck your cable and make sure it is grounded properly.
Also check the sleep button, This should be located above the keyboard. Sometimes it gets stuck.

HP DV 5000 LID switch location is here:
If You want test lid switch, just connect A+B together for a monent!
If the monitor flashes on...? Lid switch is faulty.
It is too dificult to change the lid switch, so the easiest way is connect these pins together forever. :))
Dont forget to turn off your notebook... he wont sleep anymore ;))

6710b does not support DVI even though they never said so in the documentation, i'm betting that 6715b does not either. I'm pretty bummed about it. My nc6400 worked great, just switched to the 6710 and my dual monitors would not work, with a little research i found that the DVI on the docking station, simply is not supported. No matter what your monitor configuration is...Ctrl+Alt+Del to you too HP!

SOURCE: HP DV1000 screen too dim
The 4 most common problems with dim lcd's on a laptop are boken screens, bad power inverter, bad florescent bulbs or a broken cable.
You can test the power inverter with a meter.
There should be 2 bulbs. If your screen is dim and your inverter is good and you can still make out what is on the screen, you probably have a bad bulb. If you can't determine which bulb is bad you'll have to replace both.
In my opinion, the easiest way to handle this is to replace the whole screen. Yes, it's more exspensive, but consider that it is most likely to fix your problem. A replacement screen comes with the power inverter, both bulbs, and the cable; already assembled and ready to install.
