Brighten lcd screen


OK, you are part right. The Fn key on most laptops is written in BLUE. This corresponds to the BLUE legends on various keys on the keyboard. MOST laptops have a pair of generic symbols for the screen brightness up and down . The brightness UP is a blue square (rectangle) with a large asterisk inside. The brightness DOWN is the same except it has a small asterisk inside. You will usually find these two keys as a secondary function of a function key.

Example: On my ACER netbook Fn+F6 = brightness UP and Fn+F5 = brightness DOWN

Try holding the Fn key, usually blue, while pressing the "num lock" key, which is usually above the 7. This should release the number pad function of the keyboard.

Let me know if this doesn't fix the issue!

ACER ASPIRE laptop PgUbp key came off.


Unless I'm missing something, just put the key back where it belongs. Push down hard, and it'll snap back into its place. If this doesn't work, check the underside of the key. If you see broken plastic, you'll probably have to find a new key. Acer laptops seem to have a problem with keys coming out and breaking (just look at the number of times this question has been asked!)

hope this helps

I lost my question mark -- what do I press to get it back


Press your FN key.
If you look at your Keyboard on a laptop you'll see that certain keys have more than 1 symbol on them.
The FN key brings these secondary symbols to life as live keys and pressing it again will restore original function to the keyboard.

When I type 0 9 numbers are coming up instead of letters problem:


If you had specified exactly what computer you have I could have give you exact instructions ;) Here are general instructions that should help with this problem.

Look around your keyboard, see if you can find a key marked "Num LK". If the Num LK text is the same colour as your other keys, just press it once. Try typing, see if that helped.

If the Num LK text is blue, Look around your keyboard, see if you can find a key marked "Fn". Hold the Fn key pressed while pressing the Num LK key once. Try typing, see if that helped.


Good luck ;)

How do I lighten my sceen? Acer Travelmate 4000


There is a FUNCTION key on the keyboard, usually in blue and usually labeled . You will use this in conjuction with another key. Often laptop keyboards have a second "function" on them - indicated by a little blue colored letter, number or icon. The brightness button would be one that looked like a little o with lines coming out - kind of like a kid's drawing of a sun : )

To use the second function of the keys with the little blue letter, number or icon, you need to press and hold the Fn key and then tap the key you need - in this case the little sun. While continuing to hold down the Fn key, keep tapping the sun key until the brightness is as you like.


If you cannot brighten the screen with the above steps,and the LCD is faint, you may need to replace the Inverter.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

That is because the laptop has been set up using the Fn keys.
Consult your instruction manual refarding the Function Key settings after rebooting the laptop if it is still a problem.
