Re: screen darkens

You first need to check the BIOS settings for the lighting level on both battery and ac power modes. Enter BIOS, and check those values first. If this doesn't solve it, there may be a problem with the dc-ac inverter that powers on the lcd lights. I don't think however that this is the case here, but if in the BIOS settings, the light/brightness is set on maximum on ac power and the screen still gets darker, this may be a harware problem however and should require a service center to have it fixed. But try the BIOS and other software settings before that. Most likely the problem is here.

HP net book has a white screen

Try turning down the brightness FN hold the key and select the darker icon to darken the screen. If this does not solve the issue your screen may need to be replaced. The back lamp could be faulty or the screen itself. Take it in for servicing if you do not know how to do this kind of things. John

Why is my picture darker than normal

It may be the backlighting has been readjusted by someone other yourself. Whenever you go on battery, I'm sure you've seen the screen darken a bit. This is the backlighting being turned down to save battery life. There is usually a blue function "fn" key that allows the user to brighten or darken the display. Look at the blue icons in the F1-F12 keys. The one to brighten the display looks light a sun and the one to darken the display looks a full moon eclipsed. Press and hold the fn key and tap the desired function key to brighten or darken the display.

The screen brightness changes due to plug in or battery power

This is quite common actually I see it a lot. There really isn't any reason, it seems that when on batteries it trys to save power by Dimming Down, but it often just mucks up.. I always now set it via the keyboard keys. whenever I change from power adapter, to battery.

The screen on my Toshiba satellite p205 went dark on me i check and u can see the window but really dark i replace the lcd screen and the problem persist help please what can the problem be my video...

To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out; usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Screen darker than normal which buttons do I hit to brighten

Go to settings, go to display, and move the bar up or look for icons at the top of your keyboard that looks like the sun and press them.  If your screen is still dark, then you need a new bulb.
