I have a Compaq Presario 1720US.  Last night my screen cut out.  I am
wondering how I test this to see what exactly the problem is.  I have
information that I need from this computer or else I would just throw
it away.  My other idea was to buy a used case and swap hard drives.
Can anyone let me know which other models besides the 1700 series
laptops would accept my hard drive.  I would like to swap up to one
somewhat faster if possible.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should be able to connect an external monitor.  This should allow you to
recover anything that you need.

If you are considering a replacement; get a USB enclosure for the old
drive and use it as a backup for the new machine.
