Compaq Presario R3000 dimmed LCD screen

\015 Had the laptop for 4 years with no problems. Last night I turn on my laptop and the screen is dimmed (about half the usual brightness) and everything seems a bit fuzzy. For example, playing solitaire is now very difficult because trying to read the cards gives me a headache. Messed with the brightness, contrast, gamma, resolution. Had to change the entire display setup to "high contrast", up the brightness and contrast all the way, and increase font and pointer size. So now I can read my screen and it seems to be in focus, but it is still dimmed and seems to get dimmer every time I look at it. I am pretty sure it is a screen problem, but I have no iea what kind of problem or how to fix it. Advice?\015
