(1) I was in the middle of looking up my bank on the internet when my laptop suddenly went darker - like somebody had turned the lights down.. it's still like that now. I have shut down and started it again, but its still quite dim.
(2) I used Gmail and sometimes when I am typing an email, I am busy typing away and there is no text - a few seconds delay and then the text appears.

I am positive the two are not related as its only now just gone dark and the delay in the text in Gmail happens quite a lot.

Hope you understand and any advice would be appreicated. thank you.

The text delay is almost certainly caused by something hogging all of the processing power on your laptop. When it occurs, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and click the Processes tab. Look down the CPU column. You'd normally expect every percentage there to show either '00' or a very low figure. Only System Idle Process should be above 80% (and probably above 90%). Anything else is worrying.

Sorry, I've not got a clue about the other problem!
mine goes dim if it's not plugged in
Have you tried adjusting the brightness on your laptop? Usually the FN key + the sunshine key
I agree with Bednobs. your charger may have packed in.
