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 :)
Something to try would be to re-seat the ram and harddrive.
just take them out and then put them back in and try again. I would try with the battery out and just the ac power plugged in.
Being that it was bought off eBay, realistically it probably got banged around a little bit. Sometimes if one of the devices are not making a real good contact it can cause these problems. I have also seen bad batteries cause this problem.
This is not necessarily going to fix your problem, but it has occasionally worked for me in the past and it is a very quick and free thing to try.
