Alienware 14 Backlight not working/very dim.

Hi, I have an Alienware 14 I got about a year ago.

Just now when I was trying to load up a game in Steam, its LCD backlight stopped working and staying that way. Everything else seems to be fine, it boots up and everything, you can hear the windows welcome and keyboard sounds, but the screen is simply black. I can still see by desktop but it's just really dim.

I've tried restarting, with/without the battery on.
Is there a way I can fix this myself? Or is the 'Buy another lcd screen/backlight" option the only way to go?

Thanks.
