You'll need a 2 button combination for this fix. All the cat did was adjust the screen brightness. Look at the bottom of your keyboard on the left side for a button that has Fn in light blue -this is the Function key. It controls the other keys that have a second function on them also in blue. On your right side, you'll see keys that look like a sun or lightbulb depending on your model. By holding down the Fn key and tapping either key, you will increase or decrease the brightness of the screen.
Let me know how this works for you and rate this tip accordingly. Thanks for using

Usually it is a combination of buttons.
Fn + a picture of a sun with arrow up or down.
both in blue on the keyboard.
in your case, it should be the up and down arrow keys in combination with Fn

Hp g6 screen fades out

The lcd screen or video card inside the computer is going bad. To isolate the problem connect an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to connect to the laptop.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the external monitor displays without a probem that proves your video card is ok and your lcd screen is going bad. If the external monitor displays by fading in and out like your lcd screen, then your video card inside the computer is going bad.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Our cat walked across the key board and now the vewing screen is the wrong way up. Can not figure out how to put it back the correct way round.

Hold the CTRL and ALT key and press the "UP" arrow key on the keyboard.

I have a compaq paserio notebook and when I boot up the computer, either I get a blank screen or I get a very faded image that I can't hardly see so I can't log on. Most of the time I just get a blank...

Have you checked the brightness options for the screen using the HP function keys? Fn +F7 or Fn+F8 should adjust the brightness of the screen for that C306 model laptop. If adjusting the brightness has no response then try the next steps.

What happens if you turn the computer off, plug it into an external monitor or projector, and then turn the computer back on? If the video displays correctly on a computer monitor or projector, but it stays dim on the LCD screen of the laptop, then the laptop LCD Screen Back-light or inverter is probably going out. You'll need to contact HP for a replacement part or take the laptop to a certified repair center.

Trying to move my c drive folders to another laptop. Am not doing something correct but don't know what. Need step by step instruct.

If you have USB drive ( 250 GB) you can copy the complete folder by clicking and dragging the content to the USB drive.
2. You can use the "backup" feature in Windows to move the desired folders to the USB drive or to a DVD
3. The instruction are found in the "help & support" in the under the Windows "start" button or in the case of Windows7 the Windows Orb ( right hand side of the screen) on the popup screen. There should be step by step instruction for you there.
I hope this helps.

My laptop screen is rotated 90 degress. how do I switch so its correct?

1 Press Ctrl + Alt + arrow (left, right, up or down) to rotate the screen.
  • Step 2 Press the hotkeys and arrow keys until you have the desired rotation. This works with most video drivers on Windows XP. If this doesn't work, proceed to Step 3.
  • Step 3 Click "Start," then "Control Panel," "Display," the "Setting" tab, and then the "Advanced" button. Check for an "Orientation" option. Select your desired orientation.

    Dell inspiron 6400 screen is fading

    Sounds like the backlight is going out. Youĺl need to replace the LCD screen. You can find them on ebay. Just make sure you purchase the correct one for your laptop. You will need to take out the screen to see who makes it and the number. Go to to find your manual, if you feel like you can do it yourself.

    Good Luck!

    Faded out Acer LCD screen

    It's not a contrast / brightness issue, even at the lowest setting the screen would look normal and probably not the way you're seeing it now. It's likely that the inverter or backlight went out on the lcd. You could possibly turn them up the highest level, but it would still need to be serviced by Acer for it to work correctly.

    Glad to hear you've got the extended warranty.

    Best of Luck!
