Are you running on battery power or AC power? Some laptops are set up so that they will be dim on battery power.

Your battery could be going south on you.

The other possibility is that either your CCFL or inverter (most likely your CCFL lamp) is failing. They can be replaced for pretty cheap (part is about $5 to $10). The labor is a bit tricky but can be done if you are careful.

Computer screen going staticky randomly during use, bright flashing colors.

Do a hard disk check. I would bet your hard drive is going on you. Make sure you back up everything. The other thing to check is your video card. Much easier to deal with on a tower than a laptop.

Compaq Presario F700 Laptop power up issue

Remove your cpu/gpu heatsink, apply a ermal bonding, this will prevent shut off because of cpu/gpu overheating(chipset detects temperature faulty in the firsts seconds of operating your laptop), if this didnt resolve your problem, naybe and issue with your Mobo.

Random Flashes on Macbook 13" native screen

you could try reseting the pram. this is accomplished by holding down Command, Option, P, and R at startup you will want to hear the start up tones at least three times. if that doesnt work you might have an inverter issue, the inverter is located behind the screen and needs to be looked at by a pro

Mac laptop displays minimum brightness

Check to see if there is a box right below that... Saying something along the lines of readjust to brightness of surroundings, etc!  Make sure box is unchecked for you, in regrds to your issue and then see if that helps!  I will look a little further into it for you!  Let me know if that helps though!

Screen problem =S

Try connecting to external monitor and see if you have a same problem. You have to hold fn key at same time with f4 (or depends what is yours. Check for a key that has the screen picture) If you do not get anything that means you are having problems with video card.

Have you updated recently the driver for the video card?

Toshiba portege s100-s1133 lcd screen

A pink or red screen which may gradually turn back to it's appropriate color indicates the lcd is going out. It could last quite some time in tht condition, but it's going. replacement isn't too bad though.
good luck
