I think my backlight went out? I restarted and nothing. Still dim. I can barely, barely see things like if I hit expose, I can see shifting rectangles. Also, I've been having this issue where the keyboard mostly stopped working -- if I hit kjjh, it'll come up as 3443 or something. It's usually fixed with a restart. I have it covered by a year of applecare until feb 24, 2007 -- but I haven't registered it yet. Should I register and then call apple or what? This comes at a REALLY bad time. I have design projects coming up everywhere and of course, despite my $250 external hard drive, i haven't been backing things up because I'm an idiot. Can I hook it up to a external monitor just to make a backup of my hard drive?
