I was playing around with widgets and enabled brightness widget and as soon as it to toggle it, it turned screen black lit the bottom 4 buttons and gone. I cannot see or control anything now. When I try to toggle it again it doesn't work. I hear the programs keep working (when I click on black screen) which means it's just the screen's brightness, it's set to 0. Is there a way to reset this, without using the phone's screen (because there's no visual right now). I tried restarting the phone but after a few seconds when Cyanogen boot-up logo displays it goes black and stays that way. Using a Droid X with CM9.

could try Safe Mode (http://support.verizonwireless.com/clc/devices/knowledge_base.html?id=34184), but don't think cm9 supports it.
guessing you will need to wipe data/ Hard Reset via Android Recovery (http://support.verizonwireless.com/clc/devices/knowledge_base.html?id=33552#alt)

or try installing a different launcher from play store (https://play.google.com/store/search?q=launchers%20for%20android) using a pc, new launcher may override the widget.
