HP Laptop Screen Brightness Cannot Be Changed

I have an HP dv6129us laptop. The brightness is sufficient but cannot be changed upwards or downwards. I have used the fn-f7 and fn-f8 keys combination and also searched in the Contol Panel / Display / Properties icon. Do I have a hardware problem?

    I downloaded and installed from HP an updated Quick Launch Buttons Software. It did not help to change the brightness of the screen. Each time I tried the conbo keys of fn-f7 and fn-f8, it just gives me a small screen of my System Information identifying 5 pieces of information.

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

My hp mini 210-1000 boots up well both on battery and adapter but it displays faintly on battery while it display well on power adapter


the problem is that its set in the power saving options. i mean on battery its set to power saver . while on power adapter it changes to hp recomended or high perfomance. So if you want to change it go to the right bottom of your screen and click the battery symbol it should give you the option to 1> change screen brightness 2>more power options. Go to more power options and select "change plan settings" beside the power saver.(not the one beside the other options) and change ur brightness. but its always better to keep it at ur minimum(with what ur comfortable) as its helpful to save battery

My laptop display very dim


If your HP laptop has a dull screen, or if the screen is too bright to make out anything that's displayed, you may need to adjust the brightness to get your screen back the way you like it. You don't want to strain your eyes to see your screen, and the fix is really simple. It's about as easy as adjusting the brightness on a TV. You'll have your brightness set the way you want it in a few seconds.

1. Right-click on an empty space on the desktop and a drop-down menu will appear.
2. Click on "Properties." If the HP laptop uses Windows Vista, you'll click on "Personalize."
3. On the "Personalize appearance and sounds" screen, click on "Window Color and Appearance."
4. Click on the arrow beside "Show color mixer."
5. Use your mouse pointer to move the tab on the "Brightness" scale to the left or the right to adjust the brightness and click on "OK" when you're content with the color.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Best regards.

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.

The screen on our Dell Inspiron 1545 is darker than normal. It looks like it does when it is running on just the battery. How do we lighten it back up?


Actually it's the F5 key which also has a symbol of the sun on it and arrow pointing upward. Press the blue Fn key located at the bottom row, 2nd from the left and the F5 key together to increase brightness or the F4 key to decrease the brightness (it has an arrow pointing downward). Easy, eh?

When HP laptop is pluged into power source screen goes dim


Right click on the battery icon in the taskbar, go to Power Options or something similiar. Change the plan settings for the power plan you're currently in. Check the brightness ratio for both battery and plugged in mode. This problem might come if you or someone had tinkered with the settings.
