    Sounds like a backlight issue... it is a DYI, and you might not want to do it if you don't have experience with taking apart laptops. But it is a good read

    it is a bad LCD converter, a little chip in a long plastic tube that sits at the bottom of the screen behind the plastic frame on the lcd screen. I bought one off ebay for $15-$20 about 2-3 years ago, took a screw driver, one of those plastic tools for disassembling a cell phone/ipod/zune (looks like a flat head screw driver with the tip bent 70 degrees to the side), and about 25 minutes to fix. I only had to do it 1 time in 6 years of using the laptop. HP wanted to charge me $150 to LOOK at the laptop, then guessed it would need a screen replacement which they wanted $650 to do. I fixed it with less than $20 in parts, 25 mins and about $8 in tools. HP's website has detailed dis-assembly instructions for this model in their support pages. You can google to find it.
