If by "remote source" you mean that you had a TV or external monitor connected to it at one point, your laptop has function keys that toggle these settings. You should have a function key (usually labeled Fn) in a different color on your keyboard near the bottom. Along your F-keys (F1-F12) you'll see some purple or blue symbols, one may look like two monitors or two rectangles separated by a line. With the laptop on and running, press and HOLD the Function Key, then press the monitor toggle key. If it doesn't work immediately, give it a second and press it again. Many laptops have multiple settings that you'll have to toggle through to get back to your "laptop screen only" mode.

How do i increase the screen brightness HP elitebook 8530p

Sounds like your keybinding/hotkey combo is not doing its job. (or your bulb in the display is going out)

You can open up Control Panel and adjust brightness from there.

Step 1 Click "Start ' Control Panel ' Hardware and Sound ' Power Options" to open the Power Options window.
Step 2 Click and drag the bottom "Screen Brightness" slider to the right to increase screen brightness and to the left to decrease it. Making this adjustment changes the brightness level only for the current power source; if you change power sources, the screen brightness may change again.
Step 3 Click "Change Plan Settings" on whichever power plan is currently selected.
Step 4 Click and drag the "Adjust Plan Brightness" slider to the right to increase brightness for each of the power sources, such as "On Battery" or "Plugged In." If you want high-precision numeric control, you need to access the advanced settings.
Step 5 Click "Change Advanced Power Settings."
Step 6 Click "+" next to "Display" and then "Display Brightness" to expand these options.
Step 7 Click "On Battery" and enter a percentage in the field provided. Choosing "100" will set the screen to maximum brightness; any other brightness will be a percentage of the maximum brightness. To increase the brightness, make sure the number you enter is higher than the current value.
Step 8 Click "Plugged In" and set its brightness percentage.
Step 9 Click "Apply" and then "OK" to close the Advanced Settings window.
Step 10 Click "Save Changes" to save any changes you made on the Edit Plan Settings page. If you only make changes in the Advanced Settings page, the Save Changes button will be grayed out. If that's the case, just click "Cancel."

Hope this helps!

HDMI output not working

This might not be your specific Laptop it might give an insight into the problem and guide you to installing it

The 15.4 inch display on your Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop computer works well for basic computing, but its 1280 x 800 pixel XGA display can't compare to the image produced by a high-definition television. The Inspiron 1525 features several output ports that allow you to easily connect the computer to your HDTV. This makes it convenient to use video streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu to watch movies on your television.

Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI port on the left side of the computer, just in front of the RJ-11 modem cable port. Attach the other end of the cable to the HDMI port on your HDTV. The exact location will vary among the various brands and models, but it should be on the rear panel. Select the HDMI option on the television's video source menu. Most televisions have a source button on the remote that makes changing the input source easy. Turn the computer on. Once it boots, open the control panel and select "Appearance and Personalization." Click "Display Settings" followed by "Advanced Settings." Select the "Intel" tab and click the "Graphics Properties" button. Choose the "Intel Dual Display Clone" option and close the windows. What you see on your computer screen will also appear on the television. Right-click on the speaker icon in the bottom-left of the screen and select "Playback devices." Select HDMI in the list of devices and click "Set Default" in the bottom of the window.

No Display

Display set to too dark? Tried another monitor, safe mode or another graphic card? If safe mode works, then you might need to update the driver of your graphic card. What setting do you use for the remote connection?

Problem with my Acer

hello Aznarel,

Firstly we need to establish if the problem is caused by the notebook's display or by it's on board graphics adapter. To do this I need you to connect an external display to the notebook. I see that the 292 has a VGA I/O port to which any VGA display can be connected.
When the notebook's screen is displayed on the external display one of two scenarios may be experienced:
  1. The problem's symptoms may manifest on the external display, indicating a problem with the notebook's on board graphics adapter. Since this problem can only be solved by replacing the notebook's motherboard, it may be more economical to buy a new one, depending on the status of the notebook's warranty.

  2. The problem's symptoms are not experienced when the screen is displayed on an external display, indicating a problem with the notebook's display. If this is the case I will suspect a malfunctioning inverter.
    Reason: When the LCD TFT display starts flickering it is a sign that the backlight is not receiving the correct current (the inverter provides the backlight with the required current).
    As opposed to a malfunctioning backlight. When a dark, faint output display is the only experienced symptom (that is; no flickering of the screen and no lockup of screen display) the LCD's backlight is at fault
    In case of scenario 2 the solution will be to take the notebook to a computer repair shop where a certified IT technician can order and replace the malfunctioning inverter.
I hope you find this information helpful in solving the problem.
Please take the time to rate this solution.
Kind regards and thanks for using the FixYa service.
