You shouldn't use an adapter or charger from another machine unless you know the wattage and voltage are exactly the same. You could damage the machine. Get one that was designed for your machine.

"..a drop of water in the corner of screen fell."

A liquid spill, or dropping a laptop, are the most common causes of a laptop getting seriously damaged.
When you spill liquid on a laptop, you should immediately disconnect the AC Adapter and unplug the main battery to greatly lessen the chances of it being damaged, wipe up the liquid, and if you're not sure whether the liquid got inside of it, you open up (or you have somone else open up) whatever you spilled the liquid on, the screen or the base, or both, and wipe up all liquid found. It doesn't matter whether the laptop was running when you spilled liquid on it, it could still be damaged - the atx mboard is always powered in some places as long as the main battery is installed.
The HP web site has free Service manuals available for examining online or downloading for most laptop models, if you want to try opening up the display or the laptop base or both yourself.

See response 1:

If you get no display when you connect a external monitor, see the Owner's or User's manual for your model. Some laptops have a key or key combo you must press to toggle built in display / external display / (sometimes) both.

As I said in the info at the link in Response 3...

If the display is always fine on the external monitor, your problem is either the backlight in the built in LCD display is burning out (probably), or the voltage inverter module that is supplying the backlight with high voltage power is faulty (much less likely). That's a common problem with laptop LCD displays and with LCD monitors.
There is no cure for that other than replacing the backlight and/or the voltage inverter, or the whole display assembly.
