Dark Screen on IBM ThinkPad R-31

\015 When powered on I can hear when the welcome screen comes up and can see a bit but is really dark. I have unplugged it and rebooted but still the same. Wondering where I might be able to adjust the brightness or if there may be a more serious outcome to this problem.\015
