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
Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters.
Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness.
Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness.
Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness. Fn must be held down as you continue to tap.
Hope this helps
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
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.
