When you press the keys did you press also the Fn key (usually sets beside the window key.)

it should be Fn + bright positive key. you need to press both...hold fn then tap the bright positve key.

or right click on desktop
go to properties (if you have an intel chipset or other VGA chipset) you will see a Tab with the title of your VGA (like Intel Graphic Media ....) click on the tab, from there look for a button in which you can change the graphics settings...it will give a a new window which you can change color, brightnes, gamma etc..

hopes this helps, please rate.

    also note that running the laptop on battery mode will make the LCD darken.

The monitor screen is not bright enough to read information can I brighten or enhance? Is there a function key on the keyboard that will allow this?


Try holding the function key & tapping the Home button on keyboard:
Fn + Home - The computer display becomes brighter.


If this doesn't get it bright enough then perhaps the LCD backlight is dying. Easier to replace the whole screen than just the light.
Good luck.

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 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.

How do i brighten up my screen


Have you tried the brightness controls on the keyboard?
You need to press and hold down the Fn key and press one of the function keys, maybe F7 to lower the brightness and F8 to increase the brightness.
If this deosn't work.
Is the screen very dim/nearly black?
Then you could have a back-light problem, it can be an inverter problem which supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or a faulty CCFL lamp. The CCFL lamp is a mini fluro tube.

MY A100 LCD SCREEN IS VERY DIMM WHEN VIEWING DVD howto brighten


You can brighten or dim the LCD screen by pressing the Fn key plus another key with the a sun symbol eg the UP & DOWN arrow keys or one of the F3 to F12 keys - it varies depends upon the model of the laptop.
If you cannot vary the brightness of the LCD screen the you have a faulty backlight.

Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Ok on your keyboard there should be some way to adjust the brightness just plug in the laptop and adjust it to what you want then unplug the laptop and adjust it to what you want and it should keep that setting. if that does not work you can check the bios settings some laptop bios' have a brightness option.

Brightness


You have a blue key that says FN (stands for function) on the bottom left side of your keyboard, next to control and shift. The brightness and dimming hotkey is usually on the arrow keys or up on your f row, f1-f12 and you'll see like a sun and half sun in blue, same as the function key. While holding that function key tap keys you found and it'll brighten and darken. If it doesn't, you may need hotkey software installed, a new LCD (backlight may have failed) or inverter which powers the LCD.
