ICEBOX - I had exactly the same problem! But I have just fixed it after several hours of pulling my hair out. I had tried everything I could think of, as well as lots of solutions other people had suggested, including installing the latest version if Alsa from source etc. Nothing worked, until I found these four lines on another forum. Simply paste them at the end of /etc/modules.d/alsa-base.conf and save it.
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1
Restart the computer and you should get sound out of the speakers as well as the headphone socket.

If you have to ask "how", I recommend that you STOP, and take the computer to a qualified technician, to have the work done safely & correctly.

SOURCE: compaq presario cq61 screen went
Look at the LCD screen very closely and check if you can see a faint image on the screen. It's possible that the LCD lid close switch stuck in the "closed" position and the back-light stays off even when you open the LCD screen or turn on the laptop. The switch turns off the back-light when you close the LCD display to save the laptop battery power.
If no luck, try to remove battery and drain the power, then replace battery and turn on.
If that didn't fix it then there are 3 things that could have gone wrong:
1. Video cable connection from inverter to LCD got loose. To check this, follow instructions from step 3 on how to open the LCD and check if cable is fitted properly.
2. The video inverter is faulty
The screen inverter failure is very similar to the back-light lamp failure. In both cases the screen gets very dark and the image on the screen becomes very faint, barely visible under a bright light. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. You can replace this otherwise - you can find the inverter under the screen, follow the procedure described at point 3 to open up the screen.
3. The LCD monitor is faulty
If it works on an external monitor most likely the LCD is faulty and needs replacement. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. If not, you can do it yourself, it's pretty easy. Remove the rubber covers on the side of the screen, unscrew the screws take the plastic cover off, disconnect the video inverter and put in the new LCD after you connect the video inverter to it.

-Take out the battery,
-Remove main supply,
-Hold power button down for 30 secs,
-Put only power supply in, do not put battery in
-Turn laptop on
-Put the battery in
Check your AC power adapter. Is it snugly plugged into the wall or surge protector? Make sure the connection is made and it is not loose. Also, try connecting the power adapter into a different wall outlet.
