Hi, my Compaq Presario M2000 screen won't come on, the notebook appears to boot up fine, but no screen! any thoughts? I dont have a cable to check it on another monitor. I do have it on my home wifi network however.
:confused:

First guess would be a failure of the backlight lamps or their high voltage power supply.

Can you shine a strong light on the display with the computer powered up? If so, can you see a dim version of what you expect to normally see on it? You may have to move the light source and your head around to try to get the best angles for viewing.

EDIT: Is there any reason that the cable that is all ready attached to the other monitor will not connect to the notebook?

I booted into the bios and i could see a faint screen then it faded to black again, someone said its the inverter, is that a tough thing to replace? I found one on ebay for $30

It should be a matter of removing the bezel around the LCD display in the lid of the notebook and locating the CCFL inverter. A typical inverter will have detachable connectors for the inputs and outputs. Inverters come in many sizes, shapes and power ratings. You need to be sure you get one that is designed to fit and work in your particular computer
