I have a HP Pavillon laptop that I purchased in 2008. It runs windows vista. Last night I put the screen down (which makes my laptop sleep) and came back after 30 minutes. THe light turned on for a little bit, but then it turned back off. The CPU and fan is running and I can see the display (barely), but the light will not turn on. This morning I turned it back on without the battery (but the power cord was plugged in) and it ran fine. I turned it back off and brought it to school with me. Now the laptop screen will not turn back on again. How do I fix this problem and get my laptop light to turn back on again?

Note: THe day before, I updated windows vista (not sure if that has to do with anything).

This could be the backlight bulb or the LCD inverter.

Please post the model of the computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
