It is either the screen is bad or the flex (the cable connection board to screen) is broken. You will need to have the screen and its flex check. Either way it will have to replaced.

My fn key and home for making screen light bright isnt working can any one tell me is there any other way to make my screen light high???please help its so dark

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.

THERE is two small bright patches in the screen

the two small bright patches are actually bad pixels.there is nothing to worry about as upto 5-6 bad pixels are fine.these bad pixels do not spread generally so no reason to case the number of bad pixels on the screen increase to more than 5-6 then you can get your unit replaced by the manufacturer if in warranty.

Could be the brightness settings on the laptop. Did you try increasing the brightness using the Fn keys? If that does not work you may need to have the laptop worked on.
