Default Dark Screen

I have a Compaq Presario 900 and it isn't behaving. The screen will not light up and stays dark, almost as if the screen were closed on it. I'm not sure if the sensor pressed by the button when the screen closes is stuck or what. Any solutions?

is the monitor cable in right?
is the brightness on the monitor set right?
or maybe the video card is trying to run at a higher refresh rate than the monitor supports

My computer is actually a notebook so there is of course no problem with a montior cable connection. I've tried adjusting the contrast and all that. As far as the video card acting up, I'm not sure. One time my computer was fine and then the next time I turned it on the screen was dark.
