Hold down the <Fn> Key on the bottom left side of your keyboard, then press either the <Arrow Down> or <Arrow Left>. In most cases it's the <Arrow Down> key, like on my e1505. If it doesn't work, then I would look in the control panel for Dell QuickSet. It will have options for power management, including display brightness.

If all else fails, just search in the control panel for Power management or Power Options.

If you look at the function buttons for example f1- f12.
there should be symbols in a light color. at the same time there will b a function key on your keyboard usually has the letters (fn) you hold this button down while pressing those other function buttons they all do something different so look for one that looks like a pics of the sun.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop that has a dim screen while running on battery power. It is fine while plugged in to the charger. I have adjusted my brightness settings to 100% on battery and plugged...


That sounds like a setting in the Power Management section.
Right click on the battery icon and select Power Options and have a look at the brightness settings on battery also while there check Adjust Brightness as well.
Hope that fixes it.

Why is my screen sooooo bright? Over time, the screen has gotten very bright, I don't know how to fix the problem and would appreciate some help.


To adjust the brightness of LCD screen, hold down the FN key, repeatedly press the arrow keys to increase brightness. Or, hold down the FN key, repeatedly press the arrow keys to reduce the brightness.

BRightness FN control does not work. I tried control panel settings to adjust brightness but there is no slider. I am running Windows 7 on a Dell Inspirion 1501 laptop. Please help!


Hi,

This looks to be a software issue. if the slider in the control panel is off, and it is not responding with the Fn key. then you should check the display adaptor in device manager. install the appropriate driver if needed.
