It sounds like the backlight might be wearing out on your laptop, did you use the function key to raise the display brightness? Also you can go into the control panel/display and change your brightness there too and then shut down the laptop it should save those settings....

Deem light in display

Occasionally, you may find your laptop's monitor is too dim for your liking. A normal desktop computer's monitor has an on-board menu system that lets you adjust the brightness and picture control settings as you please. A laptop monitor has no such controls. You can adjust the brightness of your laptop monitor using your laptop's keyboard.

1.Press and hold the "FN" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is the "Function" key, which operates much the same way that the "Shift" key does: It allows keyboard buttons to be used for multiple purposes. It's located in the lower left corner of most laptop keyboards, next to the "Windows," "CTRL" and "ALT" keys.
2.Look at the top row of keys on your keyboard for a key with a tiny triangle pointing upwards and the symbol of a sun on it. This is the "Increase Brightness" key. With the "FN" key held down, press the "Increase Brightness" key. On most laptop keyboards this is the "F7" key, but it varies depending on the model.
3.Continue to hold down the "FN" and "Increase Brightness" key until your dim laptop monitor has reached the level of brightness you require. A laptop monitor can only get so bright. It will stop at its highest setting.
4.Release the "FN" and "Increase Brightness" keys. You have now fixed your dim laptop monitor.

I hope you find it very helpful.

Brightness and contrast increases suddenly

Check following:
1- VGA chord; is it loose or faulty?
2- Power Supply section not regulating perfectly.
3- Supply line from SMPS/Regulator power supply to EHT.
4- Brightness lines and controls (Resitance may be dry soldered or burnt)
5-Pin connection on rounded board of CRT neck may be loosed, Check it if loose than fit properly.
6- Adjust the precet for accelearting and focusing anode externaly fixed with EHT if inbuilt in EHT than only solution is to replace the EHT only.

How can I adjust the contrast on my laptop, I can't see very well

Hold the Fn key down, then press the Right Side Arrow key to increase brightness. (Bottom of keyboard, 5th key from the right)

Granted, that doesn't increase the contrast, it increases the Brightness.
Should the brightness not increase to a level that you feel is comfortable, then I suggest you have a Backlight, or Inverter going bad.

Can i adjust the brightness of the screen?

Laptops are provided with a combination key that can increase and decrease brightness. Find on your keyboard 2 keys with a bulb and an arrow key. Mostly you'll have something like a sun. Hold down your FN key (near your left ctrl key) and press one of those keys depending on whether you want to increase or decrease brightness. In Dell the keys will the arrows keys themselves

My Dell Inspiron 6400 is extremely dark. +brightness does nothing

Hi there.
Yes, if you can see a very faint image on the screen that indicates that the inverter or inverter coil has become defective and needs looking at or replacing.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
