hmm could you of had a power surge? could of caused the back lights to burn out. static electricity or power surges can cause many problems. try also going into your power options and see if it is set on a power mode that causes your back light to turn off when you are not plugged into a power supply. i know when i first reformatted my laptop it was set on low power mode and my screen brightness was always dark until i changed it.

if it is that faint it sounds more like your screen went to poop. cause even with the brightness set low it should still be viewable. does your laptop have a vga out? try hooking your laptop up to an external monitor to see if it is not your graphics card

I doubt they are the same kind of inverters. Generally though, when I see an inverter go on a laptop, you cannot switch between the attached, and external monitor. It just sounds like your screen took a dump on you.
