Acer computer screen keeps fading

Despite constantly making the screen brighter, using fn and light key, the screen keeps fading so that it is extremely dull and hard to see. This problem has been occurring since we've had this computer.

Do you have all of the factory Acer software installed i.e..... empowering framework, ePower manager and so on? It is a common thing with Acer to have problems if all the Acer speciffic software is njot installed. Sometimes the batt. wont charge or won't be recognized among other issues. Make sure you have framework 1.1 installed and all relavent Acer software for your computer. Then reboot and see if it helps. If your like me you dont like all the bundled BS that comes with PC's but it's almost a have to when it comes to Acer. I hope this helps.

How do I make screen brighter


I don't know what kind of computer you have but usually you can press the fn key on your keyboard along with another key (usually on the top row) with a picture of a sun or light bulb looking icon. Press and hold down the fn key and keep tapping the corresponding key on the top of your keyboard until you get the brightness you like.

Acer laptop screen is dark an will not brighton l


I would like you to try 2 things:

1. Press and hold the blue Fn key then press the right arrow key a few times and see if it gets brighter. If that doesn't work try #2

2. Press and hold the blue FN key then press F5 or F6 not sure which one changes your screen. If it seems to mess something up it's ok. Just press the same combo that messed it up once or twice and it will go back to normal.

Please comment and let me know if it worked! :)

Screen is too dark, barely can see the print. Is there an adjustment to use? was working fine a few days ago, then, has been getting darker.


Most computers have a key combination to increase brightness. This is usually Fn+UP for brighter on Fn+DOWN for darker. If this is not the correct key combo, look for keys that have symbols looking like the sun or a light, those keys combined with Fn will change the screen brightness. This can also be changed in Windows, if that is the OS you are using. Go to Start->Control Panel->Power Options and an opiton for screen brightness will be there. Also, right clicking the battery/power cord icon in the system tray can get you to the power options.

Got a very dim light scree on my travelmate.can't increase it with fn.


Hi

If you look at some of the other keys on the keyboard there should be 2 keys with lights on them mine are on the right hand side what you need to do i believe is press the Fn key as well as the up light key at the same time and hopefully that should make your screen brighter

How can i make my screen brighter?


usually there are keys that you press in conjunction with another key like the Fn key and a key that looks like a bright Sun, or a Dark Sun, shape, on one of the keys usually on the number keys on top row under Function keys. So you press the Fn key and at same time. tap the Bright sun key, and it will step up in brightness, plugging in the adapter also makes it brighter too.

I can hardly see the screen as it is so faded


Laptops have a variable light output. There should be a Function (FN) key and then somewhere on the keys a sun with an UP and DOWN arrow. Press and hold FN and press that UP a few times and the "backlight" should go brighter.

Screen is dark and needs to be brighter


look on your keyboard for the key with the 'fn' meaning function and then press the up arrow key on the keyboard. This will make the screen brighter this happens when you are on your battery to save power. You can also do it manually by accident.
