    Thank you very much for the solution. Now all I need to do is find the solution to why it stays on for only a second after I turn it on. I read where it could be the video card or a fuse. Well, I changed my disply card and it still does it. Now I want to know where is the backlight fuse I need to replace. Better yet, is it something I can do myself?

The VA720 I have has 4 screws from the back: 1 at each bottom corner and 2 in the middle lower at the base. Remove screws and carefully pry the front and back halves apart. They snap together. Usually working the bottom apart first is easiest.
