Ok so this is a laptop, not a desktop.

If you can see the screen just a little bit and it is very dim, I'm sorry but your backlight most have gone out and will have to be replaced - Roughly $150 repair.

If it is completely black - I suggest blowing out all vents, try to get rid of all the cat hair and dust. I would then remove all power to the laptop, remove the AC adapter and battery. Let the laptop sit for 10 mins. This resets most laptops. While all power is removed, remove the RAM and re-seat the RAM. I hope this helps.

My screen brightness its lees


Then brighten it. You brighten it by Holding Down either FN, CTRL or DEL key + Hit the corresponding key for brightening the display.
For example on my computer I press and hold the FN Function key while I hit the UP Arrow key to brighten the screen.

The brighten/darken keys normally have the icon of a circle with sprockets around it like the sun or it looks like a washer that goes between a screw.

My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun


The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.

Sorry.
