There is no otherway. becase the slides sends direct signal to inverter for adjusting brightness. You can adjust brightness the
other way ,through graphic cards property, but that is only adjustment for the color and if you do make it bright, you'll be loosing the vivid color..not so natural.

Which operating system supports IBM thinkpad 600x

All versions of windows except Vista and Windows 7.
You may find it difficult to purchase Windows version up and including XP.
You may need to install more RAM and a a 6 to 10 Gb hard drive.
The smallest hard drive available is approx 100Gb but the BIOS in the Thinkpad won't support a hard drive this large.

Laptop brightness

sometimes the power options on a notebook determines the brightness, but if you look to your keypad, there is normally keys that adjust the brightness along with the Fn(function button) But if you have damaged when dropping it, one of the backlights may have been broken within the screen.
