Laptop backlight won't come on

Hi Fletcher,
Nowadays laptops come with an option to turn off the backlight to save power.
Since you have not included the model no of your laptop, i can't give specific info on how to turn on the backlight.
You can check the user guide of the laptop.
If that is not the case, the backlight board might have gone out and needs to replace it.
If you don't know how to do that, i would suggest you to contact a technician.

Everytime I lock my computer,shut the lid or leave it untill it goes black, it will not come back on when I touch the mouse pad. However when I got this laptop it worked and when I opened the lid and...

Well by default Closing the Lid will cause computer to go to Sleep mode and you can't wake it up using mouse. However you need to press power button to wake it up.
But as you said it was working the way you explained then seems like Power settings on your computer are changed
To check the settings Got0 -Control panel and click on power Options Goto - Advanced and find the Lid open/close actions You can change it there If you don't want your computer to goto sleep mode with the lid close, you can simply disable it.
Hope this worrks

Car doesn't start randomly. "security" light comes on and off. Have to leave key in "on" position for 10 min. to reprogram. Is there a fix?

you may have the same problem I ran into and have to turn your key on don't start the car yet wait about ten seconds with key on on position then turn it over should stop the security lite from coming on all the time and locking the fuel lines. let me know if this worked
A mechanic told me maybe if I replace the ignition that may be it setting off the security sensors? I don;t know I just wait ten seconds with the key on before I start it and as long as I do that it seems to work every time.
