Try using the FN key and the up arrow at the same time while tapping the up arrow, also make sure that if you have vista, you are not in "power saver mode". if there is no light at all coming from your screen, you may have a bad display bulb, this could also be a faulty invertor, but you would have noticed a constant flicker.
