My laptop is running but I can't see anything on the LCD

I checked the brightness (Fn and arrow keys), and i can tell the computer is still on because ctrl alt dlt still works (i restarted comp like that) and my CDROM drive still spits out. all the lights are on

I don't know what else it could be I heard the screen will only "fail" if theres a giant crack or something in it, and there isn't

i use my computer for games and schoolwork i never do anything weird to it or mod it

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

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.

Rahul

My dell inspiron 1525 notebook brightness is goes down,it looks very dark, whatshould i do?????


Press the Fn key and the up arrow key simultaneiously, this should increase the brightness. (down arrow key reduces the brightness)

If this does not increase or decrease the brightness, then the problem should be with the backlight or the backlight circuits. Please contact Dell for a replacement of the LCD panel (if your computer is in warranty) if not contact a local tech who can replace the LCD panel or the Backlight for your laptop

Acer 4520 light going dim


Normally the way it works is if you plug in your AC Adapter to a laptop the computer screen will Brighten up since its no longer running off of battery and is actually charging . The reason why it should go dim is when you unplug the Ac adapter it goes dim to save battery life and last longer. If you are getting a really dim you can check and make sure that the Ac adapter jack on the adapter or motherboard isnt loose and it could be having contact to the unit and be loose inside and every small movement causes it not to charge / charge in and out and would cause this Dim effect. Again this depends on how old the computer is and I dont really think its the LCD or backlight going bad but you can try to mess with the screen brightness and If im not mistaken on that model it should be the FN key and the Right > and Left < Key for lower and higher brightness. Give that a try and check the adapter connection and you can pin point the issue . Hopefully it doesnt come worst to worst which could be a bad LCD going bad or damaged lcd internal cable. Hope my answer helped guide you closer to a solution.
