The replacement panels for the Compaq 6720s range between $85.00 USD and $110.00 USD depending on where you order them from. The replacement is a relatively easy procedure, but I don't recommend it for a first-time novice do-it-yourselfer.
Here are links to some places where you can order the display panel:

http://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=HP%20COMPAQ%206720S&brand=HP-Compaq
http://www.r3electronics.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=1&page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=1147&category_id=38
Now the good news is you can still use your laptop if you have an external monitor. You can use the appropriate "Fn" key combination to switch your display output to the external device. I believe for the Compaq 6720 is the "Fn" key & the "F4" key. Connect the external monitor then power on your machine, Press the Fn and F4 key simultaneously until you get the display showing on the external device.
One more thing, you will need to go set the laptop to not do anything when the lid is closed. You can do this via Start -> Control Panel -> Power Settings. Change the custom power settings for both "A/C" Power and "Battery Power" to "do nothing" when the lid is closed. By doing so, you can close the laptop lid without shutting off the computer. Of course you will need to add an external mouse and keyboard to continue using the computer, but by following these instructions, you can basically use the laptop, even with a damaged screen, pretty much the same way you would use a desktop. The portability is lost, but the function is retained until you can have a new display panel installed.
Hope this helps FixYa! Please take some time to leave some feedback and a testimonial if you found this information helpful.

My Compaq 6720s sound was initially workin but stopped suddenly, I have restored to it's factory state but no result. OS is windows Vista


So, it worked well-enough for you to re-install Microsoft Vista?

What do you mean by "no result" ?
What happens?
What does not happen?
What do you think should happen?
What error-messages do you get?

Hp compaq 6720s


Hi,

Check the display on External monitor, if the external monitor works fine, it could be an issue with the LCD and controller for the system board, better to replace the LCD.

but before that just be in a safer side.

Update graphics driver and new version of BIOS from Hp.com
