I've had similar problem, but this situation happened when I was plugging in Pendrive or another USB device.
I've opened up (unscrewed) the LCD display and there is small metal 'switch' (or metal strip I should say) which must be touching laptop's plastic cover. Cover is painted with special paint which allows ellectric current goes to the other parts of the display.
If that metal 'switch' is not touching the cover you will not be able to see anything.
What I've done was just to bend it slightly, allowing that metal strip to touch the cover correctly.
I do not have any picture of it now and this is quite difficult to explain for me, but it's located at the bottom of the display (somwhere between the middle and left side)

Good luck with it.

Compaq Laptop Backlight Problems:
If your laptop screen is Black or Just Dim this is repairable. Other types of laptop screen problems include Flickering or Red Tint (Hue) and in most cases will not require the screen to be replaced.

How do i connect compaq presario x1000 to external monitor

Hi Judy,

The Compaq Presario x1000 notebook offers connections for external displays at the rear below the screen hinge as show in the picture below:


Identifying the back from left to right: Ventilation slots, External VGA Port, S-Video Port, USB Port, USB Port, RJ-45 Network Jack, RJ-11 Telephone Jack, Parallel Printer Port, USB Port and 1394 (a.k.a. "Firewire") Port.

You can connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (blue colored jack) very easily. Any analog VGA monitor should readily connect to it. Additionally, the x1000 can output its display to TV or other monitor that accepts "S-Video" signals. An "S-Video" cable will be needed to connect between the "S-Video" jacks on the notebook (next to the VGA Port) and one on the TV. It is important to note that not all TVs support both or either "S-Video" or VGA inputs. When ever the there is a choice of using S-Video or VGA on a TV or monitor, the VGA will provide the best looking picture, and should be used.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Compaq presario c500 has power and charges but the screen stays off disks will eject and you can hear the computer running just nothing on the screen.

hi there,
Please have it plugged it onto an external monitor to make sure that the problem is not with the LCD. Is there a backlight on the LCD or is it totally dark?
If the external monitor gives out an image it means that the LCD might be busted but do you know the keyboard shortcut to switch between the external monitor and the laptop screen?
You can try FN+ F5. if that does not work you definitely have to try it out on a external monitor.

I have a Compaq Presarion CQ60-249 USA notebook PC it turns on but the screen remains black

If the screen is always and completely dark, but the laptop works on an external monitor, then you have a faulty inverter.

The inverter is the high voltage board that supplies power to the backlight system, and it is often located at the base of the display.

If there is no picture on external display, then the prolem is often the motherboard.
