Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook
It sounds like the inverter or backlights have gone bad. When the inverter board goes bad it quits sending the required voltage to the backlights. The backlights illuminate the screen. It may just be a loose connection, If you need an inverter you can try E-bay but I order from businesses like. http://www.impactcomputers.com/344396-001-ib.html

Tips for a great answer:
a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the
desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
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 the video shows on the external monitor that proves your video card is ok, ,but your lcd screen is bad. 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.
