Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
Brightness and low light not working
I also started facing the same problem all of a sudden, but just disabling and enabling the Nvidia display adapter under device manager solved the issue. Not sure if it will help u, but should give it a try,

You should try to determine why your Fn keys are not working... just to make certain, the Fn+Home key will increase brightness and Fn+End will decrease.
You can try the blue IBM-Access Key. In the Configure tab, you can manage the display settings.
If you cannot see your display because it is too dark, try attaching an external monitor via the vga connector.
