My compaq presario lcd is working but it has no lights
If by lights, you mean the LED lights located around the exterior of the laptop (like the power light, hard drive light, etc.) then you may have accidentally switched those off.
First you need to locate the 'FN' key. On most laptops it's located on the bottom left of the keyboard, under the 'shift' key.
Next you will need to look for a symbol on the keyboard that would represent the LEDs. It's usually a light bulb, and is almost always located on the 'Fx' keys on the top of your keyboard (F1, F2, F3, etc.).
Once you have located the correct key, you need to hold the 'fn' key that we found earlier, and press the 'Fx' key that corresponds to the LED (or light bulb) button.
For example, on a older model Gateway laptop, I will hold the 'FN' key on the bottom left, and press 'F1'.
If by lights you mean the backlighting for the LCD screen, which would make the LCD screen appear very dim, then you will have to have the screen serviced or replaced.
I hope that helps, and if you have any questions, please let me know.
