In a pinch, you can pop the lid open on these by sliding a credit card between the screen and base chassis. Typically when the latch breaks on a tc4200/4400 it will need to be replaced unless it is simply jammed.

Cannot open my laptop

The latch is magnetic and if it breaks while closed, it will be stuck closed. To open it, you can slip a business card or something similar between the screen and the keyboard at the corner, just inboard of the rubber bumper and slide it across from left to right (I believe) while exerting a slight upward pressure on the screen and this will open it.

Be sure to replace it as soon as you can to avoid breaking the plastic "Screen Alignment Guide Pins" off. This will happen if the screen is not latched firmly and is allowed to rotate while in the closed position. The guide pins are impossible to get, as they are long discontinued. You would have to replace the entire palm rest to have them back.

My hp compaq tc4200 turns on but the screen does not whats the problem

Its probable that its the screen itself or the wiring to it. To isolate the problem, get a VGA cable and plug it to a stand alone monitor, it you see anything then its the screen.
