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
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
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.

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.
