My Compaq computer (1 yr old) is set to go into sleep mode whenever the lid is shut. Lately when waking up out of sleep the computer part starts up fine but the monitor fails to get a picture. The backlight is on, but no picture. Now My keys to increase/decrease brightness isn't working. Whats up? My monitor going out?

Hi there!

Thank you for using Bleeping Computer as your help today!

I see that you possibly have a Graphics card failure. You may need to contact your manufacturer immediately so they may help you replace the video card!

Feel free to check out this troubleshooter from Microsoft, which may be able to give reference to your problem.
