Just to clarify did this screen brightness issue happened all of a sudden or did you accidentally reduced the brightness using the function keys ?

Which is the operating system installed in the PC.Is it Windows Vista, Windows 7, windows 8, Windows 10?

Thank you for the details.I apologize for the delay in getting back to you.

Is the screen too dim that you can hardly see anything on the screen or just little dim?

The reason why i am asking is that if the back-lit tube is not functioning this can happen.

Try to increase the brightness by doing the following

Press and hold FN key then use the up and down arrow keys to increase and decrease the brightness.

Let me know how it goes.
