Just yesterday my macbook screen got dim... I thought the computer went off but it just went dim. I restarted it and it was fine, then 1 minute later the backlight went off. I closed the lid and when I opened it the backlight goes back on for a short time. What could be the problem? The macbook isn't that old. I can't get it lit enough to grab the specs. It's the white macbook non-unibody. Core2Duo. Snow Leopard. I haven't had any major problems with it so far. It is about 2 years old and unfortunately I do not have the Apple care plan anymore. I would really hate to have to buy a new one. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me.
