Windows XP backlight problem

I am using a Toshiba Satellite M55 series that is about 4.5 years old. The last few days, I've had troubles with the screen lighting.

My machine runs both Ubuntu and Windows XP, and I notice that the XP side of the computer, the last few days, has sometimes made the screen so dark that I cannot read anything. Restarting the computer did not help. However, the "TOSHIBA" splash screen and the ubuntu side of the computer both have no display problems, so I suspect some problem with software on the Windows side of the computer.

(Additional information added: the problem occurred after the computer woke up from hibernation and/or sleep mode. Rebooting did not help.)

Does anyone have any answers?
