Re: screen getting darker
Your case is the back lights inverter or lamp damage, you have to send to repair, find a laptop hardware specialist to do that, my repair cost (lowest)
1) repair the inverter board if repairable, $50
2) change the new inverter board $80
3) change the lamp $60

If you mean that the left side of the screen goes darker than the right side, then this is an indication of a faulty backlight. There are probably two CCFL tubes, one on each side of the screen. If one starts to fail, then that side of the screen will get less light and look darker. The tube may need to be replaced.
Most computers have a key combination to increase brightness. This is usually Fn+UP for brighter on Fn+DOWN for darker. If this is not the correct key combo, look for keys that have symbols looking like the sun or a light, those keys combined with Fn will change the screen brightness. This can also be changed in Windows, if that is the OS you are using. Go to Start->Control Panel->Power Options and an opiton for screen brightness will be there. Also, right clicking the battery/power cord icon in the system tray can get you to the power options.
This problem is caused by the back light behind the LCD screen, most technicians avoid this type of repair because you must take the display apart to remove the old lamp to get the new one in, "a tricky repair" most will opt to replace the screen because the back light is built in. The manufacturer make displays in such a way that it is not meant to be taken apart.
It sound like the screen is going bad try to hook it up to and external monitor and see if you have a clear picture if you do it could be a loose connection between the case and the Lcd or the inverter may be failing if yhttp://www.ask.com/bar?q=laptop+repair&page=1&qsrc=0&ab=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.laptoprepair101.com%2Flaptop%2F2006%2F01%2F04%2Ftoshiba-laptop-overheating%2Fou know how check it your self here is a link to a site that will show you how
