IdeaPad 100s: Help! My laptop screen is broken

I own an ideapad 100s. My laptop has broken before, but this time, I couldn’t fix it. I use the F9 key which makes the screen dark but not shut the computer down. You can slightly see the screen still, but it saves a lot of battery. This feature is really useful when I need to do something else while still keeping the laptop on. However, now this function is on forever! When I tried to boot up my laptop, I noticed there was just a black screen at first. I kept restarting the laptop, but I realized that the laptop was functioning, but the screen was just really dark like in F9 mode. I can sign in and do everything I wanted to do, so the laptop was still funcional. I can even go on settings to change the brightness, but it didn’t do anything. All the keys seemed to be working, so I doubt that the F9 key just broke and I can’t get the screen back to normal. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Re: Help! My laptop screen is broken

Pressing Fn + F9 should enable and disable the backlighting, but Fn + F12 should increase the brightness of the screen.    There is no new Hotkey integration software released for that model, so I am not sure how to bypass the key if it the Fn + F0 combination is not working.

 

How does the screen look when in the Setup/BIOS screens?

The screen is still the same. It is still really dark and difficult to see what’s on the screen.
