I have a HP N5340 Laptop. I opened it up the other day and booted it up and the screen came up black. The computer is booting up b/c upon closer inspection I can actually see the HP logo faintly and the XP login screen. I am pretty good at fixing hardware problems I am just not so familiar with the LCD screen stuff on laptops. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, and welcome to the TSG forum :) (y)
so the backlight seems to have gone - have you a monitor -if so you could plug that into the laptop F4 usually toggles to use an external monitor - and then at least see if the laptop works OK - confiming its the screen thats a problem

Jenn,

As was described in another thread, I had a similar problem with my HP Pavilion Laptop. The problem turned out to be a pinch cable bundle that ran out from the base thru the hinge area to the LCD.

I had addl symptoms though before failure. The screen would flicker, sometimes not come on, but come on after opening and closing a few times.

After I took the thing apart and rearranged the cable, it has worked ever since. So maybe the backlight itself is not blown???
