My backlight in my laptophas stopped working - PC Laptops
Assuming the laptop has not gone into a hibernate mode and is operating, it is possible the invertor that drive the cold-cathode flourescent lamps may have failed. This hapens at times. Replacement of the part is only solution. The lamps themselves seldom fail unless they have been broken by crushing the unit.

The screen on my HP pavilion dv2736us laptop stopped working completely out of the blue, with no apparent reason. It was working fine otherwise. I came back home after work to turn it on, and it came on (all the lights came on and the HD was 'whirring') - but the screen was pitch black, just like it is when it's off. Any fixes I can try to get it working again?
