Hold down the function button and press one of the arrow buttons (probally the 'up' button). The function button is the one with the letters 'Fn' on it, on the left side near the bottom.
Good luck, and please rate my answer.

    Have you tried adjusting the 'epower settings'? Also check the control panel settings. Is there 2 administrator accounts running? And as a last resort disable epower from starting up. To do this follow these instructions.




    1. Click start

    2. run

    3. type ' msconfig'

    4. click the 'start up' tab'

    5. uncheck 'epower'

    6. click ok

    7. than close and restart your computer

    8. and try the function button again.
    Let me know if this helps.

    Remove it using the 'addremove programs' feature in control panel.




    1. Start

    2. control panel

    3. add remove programs

    4. hightlight 'epower'

    5. click remove



    let me know if that works, and please rate my answer.

Hi I have just bought an Acer Aspire Z5710 all-in-one PC. I find the screen too bright when working for long, and want to adjust the brightness. But i am not able to figure out how to do so. And there is...


I have looked at all of the available pictures of this model PC and all of the images show a Fn key on the lower left side of the keyboard. It is one key to the right of the Ctrl key (the bottom right key on the keyboard)

Let me know if you need anything else.

The screen on my aspire 5100 is so dark i can hardly see it


hi mary welcome to the forum! 1)you have an Fn key bottom row left, hold down while also pressing right arrow, bottom right. Each press increases brightness. Each press of left arrow decreases brightness. 2)go to the manual of Aspire 5100 that you there is the option "AcerClearVision" in the software "AcerArcade". See manual:"Acer Clear Vision is a video enhancement technology that detects video content and dynamically adjusts the brightness/contrast/saturation levels so that you do not need to change the color settings if the movie you are watching contains scenes that are overly dark or too bright." So you opened "AcerArcade". There you take: "movie or cinema--> settings -->display settings" en there you change in the option 'color profile' 'ClearVision' to 'Original'.

Low brightness


If your Acer shipped with a "notebook manager" in the Acer folder, check the display settings tab. Look closely at the bottom, there is a slider that will adjust settings if your fn keys are broken, like mine. Again, look carefully because if the slider is all the way left or right, you hardly notice the functionality at all.
