Its usually the Fn key (bottom left) and a function key on the top line like F1 to F12 the brightness is the picture of the sun. I couldnt find any specific information on your model but most HP's are the same.

How do I turn down brightness on my hp Windows 7 computer?


Hi,

Below are instructions to adjust brightness on HP laptop

    • Press the "Fn" key with the computer turned on and hold the key.

    • Press the "F7" or "F8" key on some HP laptops, which are printed with a small sun icon on the key. The sun icon is filled on the function key for dimming the laptop. The other key is printed with a hollow sun icon for brightening the screen.

    • Press the "Fn" and left arrow keys together on some HP laptops to turn down the brightness. The "Fn" and right arrow key will increase brightness. Press and release the right arrow key repeatedly, while holding down "Fn," to decrease the screen brightness slowly, or hold the keys to darken the screen as low as the setting will go.

  1. For HP Monitors

    • Press and hold the down arrow key on the front panel of the monitor below the screen to turn down the brightness on the external monitor to the lowest setting.


    • Repeatedly press the down arrow button to dim the monitor gradually.


    • Press the up arrow key on the monitor to increase brightness.


Regards,
Rahul

No audio driver for xp


http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-46934-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=468789

download from hp this driver to your my_documents folder and install the software for the driver... then restart your computer

does this work... solution

or goto start > control panel > system > device manager show up

look at your audio device in the list... does it have a yellow explaination point.. no driver installe


a red mark mean on the audio device means that the sound chip is bad... and you need to ship the board to a repair shop ... or rma the laptop for repair if still under warranty

also go under the bios to be sure the sound is turned on .. there sometimes is an option to turn off the sound functionality

Can't hardly see screen tried adjusting brightness but nothing


Not all LCD displays are sun-friendly; there are limits to how much backlight intensity a portable can supply due to space and power restrictions.

I have HP DV4000 has a bright problem but cant get fn keys to work


Reinstall all drivers for your laptop from the HP.Com website. If the function keys still don't work, you may have a defective keyboard.

Turn the laptop off, then take the laptop keyboard off (usually takes 1 screw - bottom of case, and a few sliders, top of keyboard). And then there will be a couple of thin cables which are connected to the motherboard. There is a sliding connector which holds these on. Push this up, slide the cable in, puch it back down. Do for both cables if you have 2 (keyboard and tracking pad/pointing stick). Reinstall keyboard and try it out.

If that doesn't fix it, replace the keyboard with one from ebay.

Monitor brightness


This is normal for almost every laptop - it is to conserve battery power. However, if you want to adjust the brightness anyway, you can do so by holding down the "Fn" key, and then hitting the number key that has the blue 'brighter sun' making on it. This is usually the F8 key, with the F7 key being the less bright key.
