Re: it's all black

If you power it on, take a flashlight and shine it on the lcd at and angle and look real close to see if you can see a faint image. If you can, then your backlight in the screen is not working.
Also, you can attatch an external monitor to it, while its off, then power it on and see if it lights the external monitor. Try that and let me know your results.
If you get a picture ok on the external, and you can see a faint image on the lcd using a flashlight, then it could be the backlight inverter board or the bulb itself inside the lcd went out.
If you don't get any picture at all, using an external monitor and can't see a faint image on the lcd using a flashlight, then I would say there's other problems with the laptop itself. Could be a mainboard problem, power issue, etc..

Black screen after boot up.

Try pressing FN and F7 to get the video back on your PC's screen.
If that do not work, you could have a defective LCD display or the back lights might be defective as well.

Screen goes black repeatedly

It appears the lid switch is sticking internally.
Try this: 1 drop of WD40 on the edges of the plunger button itself. If that doesn't work. You may need to replace the lid switch itself. Not much of a technical challenge, but a good tech should be able to do it in an hour. Common switch design from many laptops.

If possible; ask them not to unseat the Video Card if they don't have to, this model is prone to poor contacts on the video card, then the unit may never come on again, or have lines in the display. (same as HP zt3000)

If you have poor contact, you will need some contact lubricant/enhancer (@Radio Shack).

Used to work well for TV tuners in the old days, now good for poor motherboard/daughterboard connectors.

Blank screen on Compaq Presario X1000

Since u said that ur screen flashed and also u said that when u connected an external VGA nothing would display so from these two i can tell you that it is a hardware problem and that too with the VGA card/display card.

Black screen

There are only three issues it could be...

1. The ATI video card has become warped due to overheating which woulod need to be replaced. You can find them used on Ebay for around $65 or new for around $125.

2. The cable has become frayed that connectects the video card to the inverter board due to opening/closing the laptop. Like $7 on Ebay.

3. The ribbon cable connection to the LCD panel itself has started to come undone which is also a common problem. Around $125 on Ebay.

You can try pressing down above the F5 key to see if the screen will come back up.

-Please give me a thumbs up :)
