Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?

Dim screen, bright mouse pointer

\015 I have a Gateway NV52 Notebook running Vista. Recently, the screen brightness seems ''fuzzy'' or dim, but the mouse pointer is still really bright. Changing the brightness does not help. I'm wondering if my 21 month old son accidentally did some magic keystrokes that I'm not aware of...Thanks.\015
