Answers :

First check to make sure the power adapter is connected to the laptop properly, if not it runs off the battery and the display is dimmer.
\015\012Second check the brightness setting, you can adjust the brightness by pressing the Fn key plus the F7 or F8 keys to adjust the brightness.

\015\012If this doesn't work then :-
\015\012The problem/fault could be one of several things. Could be the CCFL lamp, the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or the video card.
The video card cannot be replaced on a laptop, it is part of the motherboard.
To determine if the video card is faulty, connect an external monitor to the external video port on the laptop, power up the monitor first and then the laptop. The video output will switch automatically to the external monitor, if you see a normal Windows image then the video card is OK.
Next, shut down the laptop, disconnect the monitor and power up the laptop. After the laptop boots up look at the LCD screen at a sharp angle and if you see a dim or dark image then the fault is a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter. Most likely the CCFL lamp is faulty, but the inverter is easier to replace.
