Brightness screen fn


Many computer users spend long hours online every day and don\'t realize that looking at a bright laptop screen can be hard for the eyes. If you spend a lot of time in front of a laptop screen, consider reducing the brightness of the screen at the earliest opportunity. There\'s a quick and easy way to perform this task so you can save your eyes as well as your battery power.

Press and hold the "Fn" key on the laptop keyboard. T his key is usually located at the top right or bottom left of the keyboard. Press the "Up Arrow" and "Down Arrow" keys, which are usually located in the lower right of the keyboard, to increase or reduce the brightness of your laptop screen. Adjust the level so that you can gaze comfortably at the screen without any glare. Disconnect the battery charger from your laptop and repeat the above procedure. On some laptops, the screen brightness varies considerably, depending on whether or not the device is charged.

Glare from laptop


LOL, not much you can do about the glare unless you buy some type of cover that goes over the screen.

Have you tried darkening the screen by using your keyboard keys that controls the brightness and darkness? Usually they work in conjunction with the FN function key.

I have a CQ56 compaq and do not know which type of screen to order a matte or a glossy screen.


The Two Kinds of LCD Monitors lens1946174_1208282041macbook-matte-screen1.jpg There are two kinds of modern LCD screens: matte (anti-glare) and glossy. Both have their pros and cons and are a subject of many discussions.

Matte screens don't get glare or reflections on them; however, the same rough surface (polarizer) that reduces the intensity of reflected light results in less contrast and brightness since the light from the LCD screen passes through it. Matte screens diffuse light instead of reflecting it so they might be easier to read outdoors, if the backlight provides enough brightness. You don't have to worry as much about reflections as with a glossy screen.

Glossy screens have vibrant colors and the highest contrast and brightness because they have a smooth, high-gloss surface. As a result, it is often the choice for movies or gaming. However, strong lighting causes glare on these screens which is very annoying and may tire your eyes if you have to stare at it all the time. You can also see reflections on the screen. Some graphics designers may also find the colors inaccurate. Glossy will work great for you if the lighting in your room doesn't create any glare on the screen.

AS YOU ON THE SYSTEM AND EVEN BEFORE WINDOWS STARTS KEEP PRESSING THE F8 KEY CONTINUEOUSLY. A MENU WILL APPEAR. SELECT SAFE MODE AND ENTER. WINDOWS WILL LOAD IN SAFE MODE. THIS WILL SOLVE SOME OF YOUR PROBLEMS. NOW RESTART THE SYSTEM IN NORMAL MODE.

I want to reduce the amount of glare on my screen but i cannot and im struggling with the glare


Buy a anti-glare privacy screen. (Privacy monitor filter)

It's the best way. They should be available at any computer store.
It is thin like a plastic cover that you place on your screen.

The images on my computer are blurred


if you use the default dell settings you may experience the problem with blurry images in Internet Explorer. This effect is due to the automatic scaling in IE6 and above. IE tries to resize the images so that everything looks the same as when everything is at smaller dpi, but does a terrible job at it, resulting in blurry and unreadable images. Change the following registry setting from 1 to 0 in order to disable this "feature":
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UseHR
[1] Adjusting Scale to Higher DPI Screens (MSDN)



good luck with this. please do this, and get back if u run into a problem. also, if this fixes the problem please rate my answer. thanks so much, Joe

I'm not sure what either of those suggestions would have to do with glare on the screen.
Could you try to describe, in detail, what this "glare" is that you are talking about?
Thanks!
