Examine the keyboard. There should be a symbol on most of the function keys (F1, F2, etc.). Look for one that looks like a sun or lightbulb, either with an arrow pointing up or with the sun/lighbulb filled in. Hold the 'Fn' key, and tap the up/bright sun/lightbulb key a few times. The screen should increase in brightness.
If you cannot find the specified keys, you may be able to adjust brightness from inside Windows. Right click on the battery icon in the taskbar and open 'power options'. Look for a sun and moon with a sliding bar between them. You might also be able to adjust brightness by customizing your desktop (right click on the desktop and look for the proper menu).
You can buy the parts to fix these on Ebay. There are two components. 1 is the light source itself. (Very fragile) The other component is the the power inverter for the light. Both have a history of going bad. They have to be removed to be tested. Probably better to replace both as a set.
it means that there's no wireless card installed. You need to buy one from say ebay but do make sure it has the cables with it that fit into the screen base :) Alternatively, buy a w/l adaptor, preferably a PCMCIA card as they're harder to break as they don't protrude so much. I hope that helps :)
