If you can hold a flashlight on an angle and somewhat see what's on the screen it means the back-light of the display is dead. LCD actually don't light up on their own, so the back-light is what provides the brightness so you can actually see what's on the LCD screen.
The back-light will have to be ordered specifically for your screen, as they greatly vary in size and shape. You can either replace the back-light yourself, which is a very technical job, or have almost any computer repair store do it for you. If your computer is still under warranty this would be classified as a manufacturer defect.

Defective CCFL backlight may has the following symptom:
has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.
Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the
external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by
shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most
likely your video card is bad.
