It's a HP Pavillion Entertainment PC

Runs Windows Vista

A screw come out on one side that connected the screen to keyboard.

It worked after this happened.

1 year old was mashing some buttons and the screen hasn't come on since.

If you put it under light you can see the desktop. But it is very dim.

Is there any way I can fix this myself? Instead of taking it to shop?

Look along the top row of keys -- there may be a couple of them together with a lightbulb icon on them -- one increases the screen brightness, the other reduces it. Press 'Fn' key first, then keep tapping one of those 'lightbulb' keys -- one of them should bring brightness level back up to normal.

No key with lightbulb but 2 keys that have sun with up and down on them. Tried the FN while pressing these buttons but nothing happened.

You have to keep the 'Fn' key held down while tapping either of the brightness keys. Same goes for all the keys that have a dual function.
