Most often you can press the "Fn" key which is usually blue or purple and the "up" arrow key and that will increase the brightness of the screen. Moreover, if you are running your laptop on battery power it automatically dims the screen to save power; those settings can only be changed when your system first starts up in the "Setup Utility."

I have acer laptop 5750G. It has a very dim light. tried to adjust the brightness but to no avail..


One thing that I can suggest to you that may save you money is to try a external monitor rather than repairing it at the moment.

Dim screen acer 5100-3019


Try going into power option settings and taking the brightness to the max there. Start, control panel, power options, then you should see a setting for battery and for plugin. Hope this helps.

Is there any way to brighten my screen on my acer aspire 5601 lap top


Examine the keyboard. There should be a symbol on most of the function keys (F1, F2, etc.). Look for one that looks like a sun or lightbulb, either with an arrow pointing up or with the sun/lighbulb filled in. Hold the 'Fn' key, and tap the up/bright sun/lightbulb key a few times. The screen should increase in brightness.

If you cannot find the specified keys, you may be able to adjust brightness from inside Windows. Right click on the battery icon in the taskbar and open 'power options'. Look for a sun and moon with a sliding bar between them. You might also be able to adjust brightness by customizing your desktop (right click on the desktop and look for the proper menu).

I turn on my laptop and it's dim. I press the FN


This is a Function of the laptop,you need to adjust your Power Settings. See the PC, does that to save Battery power, it will always be brighter, generally, on the Wall supply. You may need to set up a profile for both.

Acer AL175 TFT monitor is coming on but its very dim


The screen itself is starting to go bad which is why your having to turn up the brightness to 100% just to see something. Replacing the screen would cost more then the whole lcd monitor itself so its best to get a new one.

The screen on my acer 5000 has no brightness. If


You need a new screen backlight. I was an Acer Repair guy a few years back and its definatley a physical thing. Only other possibility is the dim seetings are set to pretty much 100. If turning the brightness up which you can do from the keyboard fails call acer repairs for the part number or send it in for repair.
