The monitor does come on but unable to see very good unless held just right in the light.
Go to control panel and make sure screensaver and hibernate mode is off.

This mean's your back-light is bad. More specifically probably the backlight LCD inverter. It's the light that brightens up the display so you can see what is on the LCD board.
A new one will cost about $89. And you could find instructions on the internet on how to replace it.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.
