Question about ASUS Eee PC 1001PXD-MU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (AAS1001PXDMU17BK)
One of the hinges has already become loose, and I managed to snap it back into place. That alleviated the problem slightly, but it's still not as good as it was when I first got it. Obviously this indicates a hinge problem. Can anybody help me? I'm running Ubuntu Linux 11.10, if that matters.

I'm assuming your screen shows nothing at all, even the bios or boot screen as it turns on.
If you can hook it up to an external monitor then your video adapter is working. Try using the vga output on the laptop. If it doesn't show anything use you display select feature. I'm not sure what button it is on your laptop but on mine it is Fn+F8 (look for a button that shows a laptop and/or a rectangle).
If you can see it with an external monitor, you should try to uninstall and reinstall the video adapter. After you reboot the computer hopefully it will work.
However, if it still does not work, you will probably need to reseat the monitor cable. Do this by opening the screen panel. on the back is a flat cable tat plugs in to the LCD. This is usually covered by tape. Carefully remove the tape, unplug the cable and plug the cable back in. Don't forget to replace the tape!
I have fixed two computers in the last two weeks by reseating this cable.
Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: can i fix my broken laptop.
Well, if the display comes on at all, then it must be a loose connection in the wiring. Sometimes this is a simple reseating of the main cable to the mother board which comes down from the display near or around one of the hinges (in most cases). I would suggest, purchasing a cheap external monitor, and plugging it into the rear or video out port if you have one, and switching your display to go to the external monitor, this will work good as a desktop scenario. Otherwise, you need to take it all apart and see if you can find out where the loose connection is, this is no easy task, and should be done by a qualified laptop repair person who has experience.

I had the same problem and from other forums I found that you have to remove the memory and short cmos . To short cmos I use screw driver to connect two copper pads.

Try pressing the Fn+screen toggle key (picture of monitor + screen on one of the F keys at top of keyboard)
e.g. on my laptop I press Fn+F8 three times
