Problems changing the brightness

I bought a new dell inspiron 1525, and now i cannot change the brightness of the screen. It was working when i first bought it; i dont know what changed.

The screen is at a set brightness, and when i use the Fn + up/down arrow ; the bar for changing the brightness comes up; but the brightness doesnt change...

any ideas on what the problem is?

thank you

How do i dim the screen brightness on a dell inspiron 1525 laptop


Look at your keyboard some of the keys have blue symbols on them, that's the second function. At the bottom left of your keyboard next to the control key there's a button that says Fn on it hold that down and then press one of the other buttons to use the second function. The brightness control is the up and down arrows. Hold Fn and press up or down to change the brightness.
Also if your laptop is set to a lower power setting the display wont be as bright. Click on the little battery symbol at the bottom right hand corner of the screen a little menu will pop up that says select a power plan if its set to power saver your screen wont be as bright.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 the battery light was blinking orange and wouldnt come on so listening to an expert i bought a new battery when you first plug it in should the light still be orange??


Hi. Blinking orange light on battery indicator means it's charging. To make sure, point your mouse to the battery icon on the Taskbar located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen...near the system time and speaker icons. It should say plugged in, charging. If you see "plugged in, not charging, then you need to call Dell Phone Support for additional help.

Noise in my screen.


Whats going on is that the lcd screen is going bad, there is a slight voltage leak from the screen and thats why the noise is being made. The only fix is to replace the screen but the good thing is that the dell lcd screens come with the inverter as well. You can always check Ebay out to find one cheap.
