Hello,
I have a Compaq Presario CQ61-411WM.My screen is dark and I can not brighten it up.This problem happened before and I was able to make my screen visable again.This time when it slid down my legs while I was sitting on the couch it hit my foot and the screen went completly dark and it will only work if I plug a monitor up to it.I love my laptop and I have only had it for a year and a half.

This is a sign that the inverter for the backlight has died on ur notebook

you should take it into a PC repair shop to quote on a replacement.

its a very cheap part > $50 but its a good hour or so to put it in.

Since you hit the thing, could be a loose connection, but something could have also broken inside. Either way, you are looking at some cost for labor even if you don't need to replace anything.

I think that could be the problem because I am using it right now but I have it hooked up to my desk top monitor.Like it works just fine but I need a source so I will be able to see what I am doing.
