Compaq says to DECREASE the screen brightness for your specific model, use the fn key in combination with the F7 key (basically, hold down the fn key and press and release the F7 key). That most likely means that the Function key to INCREASE the screen brightness is usually on one side or the other (F6 or F8). Also, look for what the other User suggested; the function key should have a picture of a sun or sunburst. Hope this helps.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.
(Right side, all the way to the back)

Or you can use the HDMI port, and use an HDTV.
The HDMI port is on the Left side.

Turn the monitor/TV on.
Turn the laptop on.
Does a display show on the external monitor/TV?
No?

Hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the F8 key.
The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.
Go to what you are using as an external monitor. VGA monitor, or HDTV. Hold the Fn key down, and tap the F8 key until you get what you want.

Have a display on the external Monitor/TV?
Problem is NOT the graphics chipset.
Problem is the Video Cable, or LCD/Touch screen.

Post back in a Comment, as to the results of the external monitor test.

Lighten screen


while holding the fn key (function) press the f8 key a few times, screen brightness should get brighter with each press. the fn key might be located next to the control key lower right corner of keyboard.

How does one lighten/brighten screen for movies from the net?


There is not much you can do to the video itself. However, you can increase your screen's brightness by Pressing the function (FN) key and whichever 'F'key contains the light bulb symbol. For me it's the F7 and F8 keys...it's different for every laptop

How do you make the lighting on the screen brighter without the charger in ?


The screen will automatically dim slightly when it is on battery power, this is to conserve battery power. For maximum brightness connect the power adapter into the laptop.
On the Thinkpad laptops you can adjust the brightness by pressing and holding down the blue Fn key plus the Home key to brighten or the End key to dim the screen.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

The screen's light


Double check your actual keyboard but press the Fn key and I believe it is the F8 key .. I know its Fn key and F7 for dimming .. But there is a icon on the F7 key that is smaller light .. and I believe F8 that is larger light .. Correspondingly dimmer brighter

Would appreciate a fixya for this if this solves your problem

Acer 4520 light going dim


Normally the way it works is if you plug in your AC Adapter to a laptop the computer screen will Brighten up since its no longer running off of battery and is actually charging . The reason why it should go dim is when you unplug the Ac adapter it goes dim to save battery life and last longer. If you are getting a really dim you can check and make sure that the Ac adapter jack on the adapter or motherboard isnt loose and it could be having contact to the unit and be loose inside and every small movement causes it not to charge / charge in and out and would cause this Dim effect. Again this depends on how old the computer is and I dont really think its the LCD or backlight going bad but you can try to mess with the screen brightness and If im not mistaken on that model it should be the FN key and the Right > and Left < Key for lower and higher brightness. Give that a try and check the adapter connection and you can pin point the issue . Hopefully it doesnt come worst to worst which could be a bad LCD going bad or damaged lcd internal cable. Hope my answer helped guide you closer to a solution.

Toshiba Laptop - Dim Screen


Hey, sounds like the back lights in the laptop are faulty, if it is backlights you should be able to see the whole picture but will be hard to see and dull.

Heres one website that sells them, aint sure if its the cheapest place, last time i think i was about £80 for them. which is alot of money but depends on the laptop make etc.
