Laptop screen stays blank

Hi all,

My Laptop screen stays dark when I log on and comes bright only when I touch a little button that remains pushed down when u close the laptop. Please help. What is the problem and how to solve this?

Very common problem. The little button is used for standby and they do get stuck. See if you can free it somehow.

The little button is not really struck. When I press it sometimes, the screen display comes back. However after I have closed the screen and open it the next time, the problem happens again.
Please advise.

Is the Laptop still within warranty.

The little button that you see only activates the switch which is probably sticking. In time, this may free itself or fail. if you can get it repaired under warranty, do so. Otherwise £££££ for a switch that costs pennies.
