What is wrong with my toshiba laptop?

I have a pretty old toshiba laptop. I mainly used it for gaming (emulators, etc..) and it worked pretty well. One day it just wouldn't turn on. I then discovered that I could get into windows by pressing another button (I think the dvd). However, the screen is very dark. Why would the power button just stop working? Why is the screen suddenly dark? The power button is not loose. Please help!

If I press a different button on the computer it boots up. I never new about it before because I never had to use it. I can see everything on the desktop it is just very dim. It is not a contrast problem either. I am almost positive that the power button isn't broken because I can turn the computer off with it once it is on.

Well, can you please be more specific about your issue. If you can get into Windows that means you can turn it on somehow. You said the screen is dark, are you able to see anything like desktop, icons, menus etc. If you can't turn it on by using your Power Button, that may be a hardware issue (the button is not working properly) and if you are having bad/poor graphics, that has to do something with your graphics card or the screen itself. Can you please tell us some more about it?
