When I close my lid, and then open it again, the screen won't come back on. I have to shut it off and turn it back on. Is there a button to get the screen up again?

Change the power settings so the computer doesn't go into standby when the lid is closed.

Try a function key, I previously worked a lot with the Latitude D600 series and I believe that Fn+F6 cycled between on board and external displays.

Your power management in Windows is corrupted. I would do a system restore to an earlier date.
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: LCD cutting out

In the absence of any flickering, I think it is the inverter for the backlight that has developed a heat problem.
Experiment with this; tilt the laptop, raising it in the rear with anything that does not appreciably block air flow, then use a fan placed behind it aimed at the underside of the case.
If the time before death (blackout) is extended, then it is as described above. If it makes no difference, then it is likely only the fluorescent backlight lamp itself.

Everytime I lock my computer,shut the lid or leave it untill it goes black, it will not come back on when I touch the mouse pad. However when I got this laptop it worked and when I opened the lid and...


Well by default Closing the Lid will cause computer to go to Sleep mode and you can't wake it up using mouse. However you need to press power button to wake it up.
But as you said it was working the way you explained then seems like Power settings on your computer are changed
To check the settings Got0 -Control panel and click on power Options Goto - Advanced and find the Lid open/close actions You can change it there If you don't want your computer to goto sleep mode with the lid close, you can simply disable it.
Hope this worrks

Locks screen when I close the lid on my hp pavilion dv9740us


computer has gone into hibernation. Best to shut that function off, and replace with standby.

If you want it to hibernate, press the power button once, and it should come back on to the log in screen.
