    Here's an idea... my Acer laptop battery is dead dead dead... and oddly enough the keyboard doesn't work when the battery is connected. With the battery out, and on AC the keyboard works fine. What are the odds that this is your keyboard issue?

    Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the FN brightness option is the only option. There is no software available to brighted a screen as that is all hardware related...I guess the real answer is get your keyboard fixed..

Lots of laptop have power profiles that switch when either AC is plugged in or removed.
There should be a memorized screen brightness setting in your power management options. Usually it's located in the built-in Windows settings under Control Panel -> Power Options -> Edit Plan Settings.
You should see a brightness slider for the screen for "On Battery" and "Plugged In". Pick your brightness from there and it should stick.
Another way is to use the "FN" key on your keyboard. Hold down the FN key and press the associated brightness picture, which on your Acer, should be the RIGHT and LEFT arrow keys. Keep holding the FN and tap the right or left to increase or decrease the brightness. Usually the setting will stick this way, but somethings you have to use the control panel method for it to really stay.
You also might have another program for power like Acer ePowerManagement which should have the same settings as windows, but layed out differently.

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

Dark picture on monitor


Occasionally, you may find your laptop's monitor is too dim for your liking. A normal desktop computer's monitor has an on-board menu system that lets you adjust the brightness and picture control settings as you please. A laptop monitor has no such controls. You can adjust the brightness of your laptop monitor using your laptop's keyboard.

1. Press and hold the "FN" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is the "Function" key, which operates much the same way that the "Shift" key does: It allows keyboard buttons to be used for multiple purposes. It's located in the lower left corner of most laptop keyboards, next to the "Windows," "CTRL" and "ALT" keys.

2. Look at the top row of keys on your keyboard for a key with a tiny triangle pointing upwards and the symbol of a sun on it. This is the "Increase Brightness" key. With the "FN" key held down, press the "Increase Brightness" key. On most laptop keyboards this is the "F7" key, but it varies depending on the model.

3. Continue to hold down the "FN" and "Increase Brightness" key until your dim laptop monitor has reached the level of brightness you require. A laptop monitor can only get so bright. It will stop at its highest setting.
4. Release the "FN" and "Increase Brightness" keys. You have now fixed your dim laptop monitor.

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

Screen is dark and needs to be brighter


look on your keyboard for the key with the 'fn' meaning function and then press the up arrow key on the keyboard. This will make the screen brighter this happens when you are on your battery to save power. You can also do it manually by accident.
