Cause for the NTLDR missing:
Computer is booting from a non-bootable source
Windows XP users
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Edit the boot.ini on the root directory of the hard disk drive and verify that it is pointing to the correct location of your Windows operating system and that the partitions are properly defined. Additional information about the boot.ini can be found on document CH000492.
Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32
If you are getting this error message while you are attempting to upgrade to Windows 2000 or Windows XP from Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows ME running FAT32 please try the below recommendations.
sys c: <press enter>
If you are attempting to add a new hard disk drive to the computer make sure that drive is a blank drive. Adding a new hard disk drive to a computer that already has Windows installed on it may cause the NTLDR error to occur.
If you are unsure if the new drive is blank or not try booting from a bootable diskette and format the new hard disk drive.
Corrupt boot sector / master boot record
It's possible your computer's hard disk drive may have a corrupt boot sector and/or master boot record. These can be repaired through the Microsoft Windows Recovery console by running the fixboot and fixmbr commands.
Additional information and help in getting into the Microsoft Windows Recovery console can be found on document CH000627.
Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP
If you have tried each of the above recommendations that apply to your situation and you continue to experience this issue it is possible you may have a seriously corrupted version of Microsoft Windows. Therefore we would recommend you reinstall Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
If you are encountering this issue during your setup you may wish to completely erase your computer hard disk drive and all of its existing data and then install Microsoft Windows 2000 / Windows XP. Additional information about erasing the computer and starting over can be found on document CH000186.
Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable
This issue has been known to be caused by a loose or fault IDE/EIDE cable. If the above recommendation does not resolve your issue and your computer hard disk drive is using an IDE or EIDE interface. Verify the computer hard disk drive cable is firmly connected by disconnected and reconnecting the cable.
If the issue continues it is also a possibility that the computer has a faulty cable, try replacing the hard disk drive cable with another cable and/or a new cable.

To get you buy temporarily, buy a portable flexible laptop for 15 bucks at Bed, Bath and Beyond (they have a nice little gadget area) This will allow you access, the keyboard can be rolled up when not used and is USB. Then either search for a "key" or the whole keyboard on Ebay...they are usually 15-25 bucks. Below is the service manual for your laptop for disassembly of needed components.

It maybe that the invertor or the backlight has gone on the unit and you can either try replacing the screen or invertor yourself or take it to a reputable computer shop and ask them. If its the screen they tend to charge around £140 to resolve.

look close to the screen and see if there is a faint picture. if there is then read below for the issues and solutions that can cause this problem.
Issue 1: Lid button sticking
this is a common issue with this model that the lid button sticks closed. fiddle with it to see if it opens and the light comes on.
issue 2: Inverter for the monitor is bad
this is not to uncommon an issue when this problems shows itself. Laptops monitors light up with a fluorescent bulb. This is powered by an inverter. These can go bad and if they do the light will not turn on. you need to take this to a service station. i don't recommend trying to replace without knowledge of this. They are high powered and you can hurt yourself or damage the screen
issue 3: fluorescent bulb went bad
this is usually the least common but could have happened. usually happens when peopel spray their screen with cleaner and it drips down inside the bottom. This can be fixed by a service center but coudl get costly. best bet is buy a new screen.
