Make sure you are online and the internet icon confirms the status.
Go to the Control Panel/Device Manager/Dispaly Adapter and right click the Mouse and click on Update Driver if that does not work uninstall the driver and power-off your Mac and switch back on. The OS should then reinstall the driver.

Why does the picture on my Vizio tv (model E241-A1) gets bright then darkens?


Check to see if you have a daylight savings option in your TV's settings. It will adjust the screen automatically according to the light changes in your home if it is enabled.

After i tun my ipod touch on is stays on a black screen


Tweaking the brightness settings on your iPod touch saves your eyes from unnecessary strain.

Changing the brightness settings can be done quickly if you're on the go.


Adjusting the brightness of the screen can make the device brighter if you're in a dark environment or darker if you're in a bright environment.


Alternatively, you can set the device to automatically adjust to the level of brightness it's exposed to.


Press the "Home" button to return to your iPod touch's home screen.


Tap the "Settings" app.

Tap "Brightness." A scroll bar appears at the top of the screen.


Press and hold your finger against the circle on the scroll bar.

Drag your finger to the right to brighten the screen and to the left to darken the screen.


The screen's brightness will change as you move the circle.

Alternatively, tap the ON/OFF toggle to the right of Auto-Brightness to have the device automatically adjust itself based on the detected brightness level.


Tap the "Home" button just beneath the iPod touch home screen to save your changes and return to the device's home screen.
if this is not or cant fix the problem you might have restore it to factory settings

You can use iTunes to restore iPod Touch software.


Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes to complete this process.


Follow these steps to get the latest version of iTunes and restore your iPod Touch software.


Back up your iPod Touch's data to your computer before the restore to prevent losing data.


You'll need to reinstall it after the restore process.


Connect to the Internet and install the latest version of iTunes from the Apple website.



Make sure your iPod Touch is connected to your computer.


Pick "iPod Touch" in the Source pane of the iTunes program.


Click on the Summary tab.


Choose "Check for Update."


Select "Restore" and follow the instructions to finish restoring your iPod Touch.


although it does sound like a hardware problem with the ribbon cable leads so if this fails and you are tech savy you could try to open it up and to have a look

hope this helps

LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT SCREEN


Darken the screen and either move the lid forward or backwards. Laptops have Liquid Crystal Screens and moving the lid backwards or forward will give the screen a different look.

If you need to adjust the brightness of the screen it is controlled by keys on your laptop. Most times to darken the screen you will have to hit the FN, CTRL or ALT key and hold it down while you hit the key that corresponds to the screen darken key. On some computers (even on my laptop) it will be the down arrow key, so i would press FN+the down arrow key. Remember to hold the first key down while you hit the next key. The icon used for most times to denote the brightness or darkness looks like a circular sun or a washer that goes on screws.

To whom it may concern, The screen is very dark. How can I fix it? Also, how can I change the brightness? thank you for your time!


To adjust the screen contrast (to lighten screen or to darken it)
  1. Press the [2nd] key and RELEASE it.
  2. Press and HOLD the UP Arrow to darken screen, or
  3. Press and HOLD the DOWN Arrow to lighten it.
Keep pressing the UP or Down arrows (whichever you need to press) until the screen contrast is adequate.

In your case, the screen is too dark, so you must press the DOWN arrow to lighten it.

When the screen is dark there are lines that run back and forth across the screen which is only noticable when pitcure is dark immage.


the screen bias needs to be turned down-ehind the front cover which is behind the grille there is a small black square about 3 inch square 6 little knobs sticking out 3 say in small letters screen and 3 say focus, don't adjust the focus just the screen for the coresponding color that shows up when picture is dark.best way to do this is darken the room and put it on video input with no signal if lines are white slowly
adjust 1 color after the other counterclockwise untill
lines disappear if only 1 color shows then only adjust the knob with the matching color. this is a very fine adjustment, to much will make your auto focus stop working. check it after you are done
