Answers :

You should try updating the BIOS. You can\015\012find the latest BIOS on HP.com. To find the correct modell search for\015\012the modelnummber. You can find it under the unit on a white lable.\015\012It will look something like this AA111BB#CCC. Then go to software and\015\012drivers downloads and chose operating system. You should find the\015\012latest BIOS somwhere on the page.

If this doesnt help it is either a defective mainboard or LCD panel. So the unit will need service unless you can change the parts yourself.
Can you see a slight image?
\015\012As you can see an image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.
\015\012Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
