Re: compaq presario V2110US backlight
If the backlight is an intermittent problem, it is likely that the video connector and or the backlight connector needs reseating. There are usually two connectors that connect the LCD display to the motherboard. You need to pull apart your laptop to reveal these connectors (these connectors are usually near the top edge of the laptop). Unplug and reconnect these connectors to re-establish a good connection. Take note of the locations of the various screws when you remove them (some vary in length) so you can put them back in their correct location.

Hi Fletcher, Nowadays laptops come with an option to turn off the backlight to save power. Since you have not included the model no of your laptop, i can't give specific info on how to turn on the backlight. You can check the user guide of the laptop. If that is not the case, the backlight board might have gone out and needs to replace it. If you don't know how to do that, i would suggest you to contact a technician.
What is wrong with the backlight? The computer screen is just dark? I would start with the inverter. The inverter is usually the problem when the screen goes dark but people think it is the backlight. The backlight alone is very hard to change too. Go with the inverter, I would bet that is the issue.
Keep in mind that if you have windows xp on your laptop it won't have the drivers for the wireless card. If you have vista on your laptop then choose vista and then the driver for the wireless card will be in there. Just download it and install it. The laptop should recognize the card at that point.
Yes by leaving the laptop on all the time you could burn out the laptops back light. Set your power settings to turn monitor off after so many minutes of non use to save this. Further more I would recommend a chill pad under the laptop to help keep the CPU from getting to hot.
Hi there. The backlight or inverter is located at the bottom of the screen behind the bezel (plastic screen surround) it's an elongated circuit board hidden behind frosted plastic, you can't miss it as all the connectors from the motherboard and the screen are attached to it. If you need any more advice please feel free to post back.
It is possible that the problem is in the video card - that it's just not turning on the backlight. But it's so much more common for it to be the backlight or inverter that I'd try to get a second opinion.
