Don't despair just yet, the evening shift is coming on. In the meantime, could you ascertain which kind of screen you have, Backlit, Passive-Matrix or Active-Matrix. If not, the make and model. As the above suggestions, see if there is an external brightness control. You shouldn't need a new laptop, at the worst a new screen.
