--My laptop screen has become suddenly very dim, its very difficult to see.

--The screen lights up during boot, able to see the startup screen and turns dim immediately

-- When fn+F7 is pressed twice, the screen comes alive for 2-3 seconds and then once again goes dim

-- when i try to increase brigtness using fn key, there is no effect

--when an external monitor (tv) connected, the display appears properly in my tv. Although if i try to make my tv as my primary monitor it does not work (guess thats a different issue).

Can you please help me with this issue.

It sounds like the backlight may be going out or perhaps the inverter is on its way out. This is usually the case in older laptops. If it is a newer laptop though, I'd get in touch with the manufacturer and see what they have to say about it.
