I have the same laptop and have the same problem when i updated the Kernel.

I've been running which has no problems.

I initially updated to 2.6.38-8 which i thought at first had failed, but
noticed the screen was only usable (and i use that word very lightly) in direct

I've now updated to 2.6.38-10 which has the same problem as 2.6.38-8, no back
light on the monitor.

I'm currently viewing the laptop on 2.6.38-10 through an external monitor so i
can try to resolve the problem and can run any diagnostic commands you require.

Please see the above launchpad link for all the debug information regarding
this problem.
