Try also- when you power-on, hold down the ESC key. You SHOULD then get a message 'press F1...'. Then press F1 and it will take you into the SETUP menu. Under Battery... you can set the screen brightness while running on the battery. At least the ESC,F1 works on my machine.

THE LAPTOP WORKS FINE BUT THE SCREEN IS VERY DARK


Every laptop that is coming to the market has a button the bottom left just next to the "Crtl" button. This button says "Fn". On the other hand please find the buttons that are marked with dark Sun or a white sun. These buttons are for decreasing or increasing brightness. Just press down the "Fn" key (or button) and then press the key with the white sun on it. The brightness of the laptop screen will increase.
The keys with sun symbol on it are usually the arrow keys.

Good Luck!

How can i adjust the brightness of my tecra m1? pressing Fn & F7 or F6 doesnt work.hope you guys could help.


The brightness is automatically controlled by a "Brightness Sensor" However, you can compensate the brightness by using the Toshiba Brightness Sensor Control. In order to use this utility, you must set the Brightness Sensor in Toshiba Power Saver to "ON"

When I unplug my Toshiba Tecra 8200 with windows XP, the screen becomes dark, but not too dark. Please help!


Check your power setting preferences - although I am not familiar with your computer, some laptops reduce power to the processor and screen when unplugged to save battery power. You can normally change the settings so that it runs normally whether plugged in or on battery (although of course the battery will then not last as long)

I would like to change the screen brightness on my Tecra 8200 laptop, but can't find HELP on how to do this. Is there a 'hotkey'? Where can I get hotkey descriptions, if they exist?


Normally there's a Function button (Fn) and you can use that in conjunction with the brightness buttons on the keyboard (looks like a sun on most)

Toshiba tecra 8200 power problem


The power button is on the LEFT side of the computer, under the Ctrl key, slightly closer to you. It is covered by a sliding door which slides BACK to open and expose the push-ON button.
