I had tried to connect an external monitor to the laptop and it showed everything on the external monitor, clearly. Now, do you still think the solution is to fix either the screen, CCFL lamp, the wire, inverter or something else?

I also have this laptop model and I was having a problem where my HP xe3 gc was getting white dots much like a weak signal on your tv. What fixed mine was that I cut the wires that went to my inverter and made them longer so that the screen would show when you close the lid. And wow that fixed the problem not sure if it would fix your problem but worth a try just cut them and put them back together!! If you want to by in inverter then look and ebay you may save some money beware of not buying new! and also when you get the problem fixed make sure if you keep you laptop on all the time set the screen to shut of every 5 min that way this will keep your screen from staying on all the time making your new screen last longer!!

It sounds like the CFL backlight has failed or is starting to fail. These can be purchased from many places online. Replacing could be a bit tricky. Some laptops are a bear to open up, but for the most part they aren't too bad. You'll need to find out which size CCFL lamp you have. You may need to contact HP for this, or google for it.
Your inverter could also be going too which are about $70-80. I would doubt this is the problem though.
