Sounds like your LCD backlight unit needs to be replaced.
The part is cheap but you will need to open up the LCD screen and replace the CCFL tube

SOURCE: presario 700 very dim screen

One solution i've found for this problem is to turn down the screen brightness (funtion key, then F7) worked for me instead of replacing a very dark screen.. kept it from overheating

SOURCE: Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX shows a blank screen on boot, but runs perfect on external display

Yes! it is the inverter board or the backlight behind the display that is the issue.

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 :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

My compaq presario cq60 wont turn on


Does the laptop boot? Sound? Do you see a "ghost Image" in the monitor in a bright light? If so, Could be backlighting, Inverter, on/off switch that shuts the monitor on/off when you open and close the lid. Can you boot to safe mode with networking? If so, Open the Device Manager, Uninstall the Graphics Adapter, reboot, the software will apply a generic driver, If the Graphics adapter has not failed completely.

Compaq presario cq70 wont boot up


old Compaq (now HP)
https://h30434.www3.hp.com/

first screen died, now wont boot, to external VGA monitors.
Fn+F4, sure. the external command key. sure
ok VISTA, first time any one tells what OS is there, wow.
step one on all PCs lap or desk top is what,
does the screen show any text at all?
like Hit Esc to enter setup or BIOS>
we first see of BIOS is alive. it not the PC is DEAD.
zero text means DEAD PC> and NO BIOS means DEAD PC
so out comes that old useless LT battery.
useless as in , if its original its bad. most are.

you skipped step 1 here, (battery out)
and next fans work? and blow air, no lint packups. inside.
learn that PC's go dead, with overheat, can happen fast.

Compaq Presario CQ50-110US 15-inch Laptop dropped will boot but no video


Your laptop may have a combination of problems. Since the laptop was dropped, it is possible that your may a motherboard that no longer outputs video through the video controller, or the screen may have been damaged internally. Try hooking up an external monitor through the vga output of your laptop, usually located on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, then most likely it is your screen that's bad, if the external monitor doesn't works, then most likely it is your motherboard that's bad.


Let me know if this helps.

Will not boot up


Try and hook up an external monitor you may have to switch to external on the keyboard with the fn key and the one that has the tv picture on it usually f2. If you can see a picture on the external then either the invertor or the backlight is damaged if no picture on the external then the video card or video circuit on the motherboard is shot. Also try hitting the esc key or f2 key to get into the bios at boot if you see a bios screen then the problem lies elswhere.

My compaq preasrio r3000 black screen cant conect to an external


have you any other A/V ports out ie Svid etc if so try that via an A/V lead, if that works reset your bios settings to minimal settings, if that doesnt work search the 'net someone somewhere has had the same problem! try shining a flashlight/lamp onto the screen whilst booting up, if you see anything on the screen then your inverter is definatly gone and yes it could still be your inverter! your laptop may have software/hardware issues with an external monitor?
