A few days ago, I dropped my laptop from less than 12 inches over the carpet. It landed on its corner. Since then, the screen won't turn on. There is no physical damage to the screen or the casing. There have been a couple of times where I was able to get it to turn on by using a paper clip to press the reset button or holding shift and f8 while I press the power button. Neither of these solutions work the first time. When I am able to get it to turn on, the screen looks perfectly fine. There are no visible problems with the colors. The only other problem related is that the backlit keyboard won't turn off when the laptop is closed. The computer works fine otherwise.

Obviously somewhere a damaged or loosened connection
both to the screen circuitry and the keyboard illumination
Unless you are familiar with dismantling laptops I regret to say it is foolish to try and you need to seek professional help, albeit that of course will cost.
You may decide on getting a ballpark estimate that, depending on the age of the laptop it is unworthy of such expenditure

The best I can offer, if I can find it is the service/replacement parts manual for your laptop
What is the make and full model.
