Question Laptop backlight

I have a Dell Inspiron 8100 with Windows XP.

I was wondering if there was a way to turn off, or dim, my laptop's backlight... It's way too bright, hurts my eyes, and probably uses more power than necessary.

If there isn't, thank-you for responding anyway. If there is, please let me know.

Thanks, Ben.

Edit:

Computer Details:

Windows Version etc.: XP Professional version 2002 service pack 2
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) III Mobile CPU 866 MHz
Memory: 863 MHz, 512 MB
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 2 Go IRQ: 9 BIOS: 3.11.01.44.B4 TV Encoder Type: Chrontel 7007 Bus: AGP 4X Memory: 16MB DirectX 9.0 or better


I figure that's all that applies to my question.

Yeah... I've done that, but it's still very bright. Is there another way?
