    Do you have some specs ( ie. What model is it?)

    I'll assume that's either a 15" or 17" Core 2 Duo.
    Have you tried an external monitor? If it's a backlight problem on the laptop LCD an external monitor will show a normal desktop. If it's a video hardware problem the problem will also show up on the external monitor.

    Give this a shot too:
