Having problems with your Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook ?

I have a compaq presario M2000. The computer comes on and is working but the monitor is so dark you can just barely see anything on it. I have tried to brighten the screen with the function key set but it doesn't brighten. I hooked it up to an external monitor and it seems to try to come up but disconnects itself from the external monitor and goes back to the laptop monitor.
