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.

I have a Acer Aspire One D255 and the screen wont light up. shinning a light. to the screen i can see it is not frozen. i am able to. log in and. axcess the apps. easy fix? please help


I would like you to try two different things.

First press and hold FN then press f5.

If that didn't work try holding FN then pressing the left or right arrow(depends on the computer, not sure which one it is) to make it brighter. You may have to press it multiple times.

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.

I have an Acer Aspire laptop 4810T. It turns on perfectly and everything appears on the screen but it is barely visible. The screen almost appears to be black.


It would seem that backlight for your screen is out. The light may be dead, have a poor connection, or your brightness may be down to zero. To see if the brightness is just low hold the function button "FN" and if you look on the left and right arrow keys there should be a Sun on each one. The left being brighter or filled in, the right darker or hollow. Press the left key while holding the "FN" button. Keep doing this to increase the brightness. If the screen doesn't get brighter there is an issue with the backlight. This is usually covered under warranty. If you still have a warranty contact Acer and they should repair your computer free of charge. If it is not under warranty you may need to replace the screen.

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.
