Open control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, adjust Advanced Power settings. On battery the computer software will dim the display to conserve battery.

How do I turn up the brightness on a HP Probook 6550b?


PLEASE RATE ME!
go to the search icon under start. search brightness. it will tell you step by step what to do.
Every laptop is different, so adjusting the brightness or contrast on your laptop may vary from the steps provided on this page. However, understanding the process of how to adjust the brightness or contrast will help you change your settings.
Most laptops adjust their brightness and other settings using the function key in conjunction with another key. For example, pressing and holding the function key (abbreviated as "Fn") and pressing the up or down arrow keys as shown in the picture below, increases and decreases the brightness.

MY Laptop Screen Is Dim It Will Not Show Bright


When you say that your laptop "screen is dim", do you mean that there is no light coming from your screen, but you can see images on it? or do you mean that there is light coming from the screen, just a very little amount?

If you can images, but NO light is coming from the screen, then the LCD backlight is dead, and it needs to be replaced.

If there is light coming from the screen, but it's very dim, then you'll need to find the screen brightness adjustment keys on your laptop. This is usually two keys. The first one is normally in the lower left corner of your laptop and should be a different color - like blue or purple, and will be labeled something like "Fn". The second key is normally in the function key row (F1, F2, F3, etc...) and has a symbol on it that looks like a sun or burst of light with an arrow. There's usually one for "brightness UP" and one for "brightness DOWN". Hold down the Fn key, and then press the "Brightness UP" key a few times to see if the screen brightens up. Good luck.

My screen is dim. What causes this?


Most likely your settings.

In most cases, the LCD is dim when not plugged into an outlet to save energy. (It can make the laptop stay on an hour longer in some cases)

If you want to brighten the screen, and kill your battery time in the process, hold down the FN (function key) and press the button with a picture of a sun and a arrow pointing up. (both pictures should be light blue on your keys)

If you don't mind the dimness of your LCD, leave it alone. The brightness will return when you plug your laptop into an outlet.

How do you make the lighting on the screen brighter without the charger in ?


The screen will automatically dim slightly when it is on battery power, this is to conserve battery power. For maximum brightness connect the power adapter into the laptop.
On the Thinkpad laptops you can adjust the brightness by pressing and holding down the blue Fn key plus the Home key to brighten or the End key to dim the screen.

Is there a "shortcut" for dimming the screen


The keyboard has function keys just like the Dell. Hold down the FN key and tap the key that has a little sun + or - on it.

Screen is dim


Try looking for a function key (usually used by holding down the Fn key and then pressing one of the "F" key at the top) the key will be marked with a brightness indicator.

Is your screen only dim when running off the battery is it dim when running when the charger is plugged in as well. If it is only dim when the laptop is running on battery then this may be caused by a setting in Power Options which is located in Control Panel (that is if your running Windows). In Power Options look for settings about running on AC Power and running on Battery power.
