Have you made any hardware changes or has there been any event after which it had this problem?
If not, I would start with replacing memory, or if there are two pieces installed, take 1 out try the other, first in 1 slot then the other, then switch to the second piece and rotate. If you have access to known good memory, try that instead.
Hook up to an external monitor and boot up the laptop. If there's an image on the external, then we've got an lcd problem, most likely the inverter.
Other than that, try using only the ac adapter (take the battery out).
If none of these work, weneed to do more technical changes, such as replacing the inverter, etc.
Good luck

I don't have recovery disk for laptop CQ50-110 Notebook PC. What do I do? I have power to the laptop.

when you say you have power, do you mean the screen light up and you get through bios and it tries to start windows or do you mean the lights come on and the screen stays black. if the screen lights up either windows is corrupt or your hard drive is broken. if the screen stays black then your motherboard is faulty. it's usually the connections between the graphics card and the motherboard that's the problem which is caused by your cooling fan getting full of dust and your laptop overheating. that might all sound really technical but basically if your screen lights up it's not too big a problem, if it doesn't then you're best selling the laptop for spares and buying another one

Laptop has a black screen no picture.

It sounds like the back-light in your laptop's LCD screen has died. If you turn the laptop on, and hold the screen up to the light, you may be able to see the operating system and windows, but since the screen isn't emitting any light, it appears to be off or all black. If this is the case, you'll need to either replace the back-light, have the laptop repaired, or replace the whole thing. There's no easy fix for a dead back-light.

When you say sounds like it starting up, can you hear the Windows sound byte, or just the hard drive spinning and CD drive engaging?
