Luminosity of screen too low

I'm not familiar with that specific laptop, but there is usually a Function key, labeled fn on the lower right by the space bar, and then when you look at the keyboard, some of the keys have small pictures in the same color as the writing on the function key (usually blue) look for the picture that looks like a sun with an up arrow. Most laptops let you adjust the brightness that way. Just keep holding down function and pressing the brightness up key.

How do i control the backlight on my toshiba satellite running win 7


Hold down the FN key (next to CTRL) and press F7 for brighter or F6 for dimmer. I'm pretty sure it's F6 and F7 on your model, but check first - F6 should have a small sun icon and a down arrow and F7 should have the sun icon and an up arrow. If it's not these 2 keys, look for these icons on all the 'F' keys.
