Yes, Just put a windows XP disk into the CD drive (must be the full version of XP) and "press any key" to boot from the CD. The setup will walk you through installing windows.

Dell latitude Cpi LCD screen Backlighting?

What do you mean exactly?

To increase or decrease the backlight brightness use Fn-key(next to left Ctrl-key) with up and down arrows.

There is not some key-combination to turn off the screen, you can make your computer turn it off after some time (if you're using XP this can be done in control panel->Power options), or just close the lid :)
