Default laptop screen problem

I am having problem with the screen on my laptop... i was on my laptop at the time, but left it on for a while, but the screen went blank. on futher inspection i could actually still see everything that was on the screen but looked as though the contrast had been turned down. I have tried restarting over and over, yet the screen still does not come on like it used to. The windows xp operating system is still working and running, it's just i cannot see what is on the screen.
can anyone help?

my laptop speccy:
-- laptop
-- windows xp home
-- quite good ram (256)
-- good HDD size (over 20GB)
