Default Laptop will not light up anymore? Help please!

Ok now I have a older laptop that I have setup with a bunch of External large harddrives. Its like my main computer for all my files in nice location in my home. I've had this laptop for a few years and I have never had a problem with it. Its a compaq evo n600c. Yes I said it was old . Anyway, for some reason now. When I boot it on. It loads and I can see its working. The actual light for the screen is not showing. I have no idea why. I can look close enough and still kinda see the desktop and move the curser. Its like I'm working in the dark. UGH!

Anyone know whats wrong and how I can fix it?

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
