They are ccfl lights and use an inverter just like add on lights for a desktop system. In the case of the laptop they are unique to the display and have to be taken to a repair shop to be replaced. Or it could be the inverter has died. In either case unless you can get your hands on a replacement screen, and you know what you're doing, the best bet is to send it in to be serviced.
