Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

Screen just went black on Compaq Presario 2000

All of  a sudden, in the middle of work ing on a Word document, the screen went completely back. I can't see anything even if I shine bright light on the screen.  I tried the "hard reset" - taking out the battery, unhooking the AC, holding power down for 1 minute - with no results. Any thoughts on what this is, or how I can solve the problem? I am on a tight deadline and need to get the documents I was working on off this drive, is there anything I can do?

    Does the computer seem to boot up normally, you just can't see anything on the screen?

Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim rather than a slow degradation, the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

What was your coworker doing on it? I would say you need to at least do a disk check. You can do this through windows repair console or in Vista you can boot to the disk and have it check boot up problems. Very easy.
