    Thanks,

    I can't use the Fn key together with the function keys @ the top to adjust brightness or loudness, that's why I raise this question.

Brighten lcd screen


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

How to adjust the brightness on my sony vaio pcg-k17?


To adjust the brightness control, press Fn + F5 and release, plus the RIGHT ARROW or LEFT ARROW keys to increase or decrease the value.

On most notebook computers you can use the Fn+F5 keys to lower the screen brightness level, and the Fn+F6 keys to raise the screen brightness level.

My lcd is too bright


Screen Brightness can be adjusted in either of these 2 ways....

Or by presing FN+ F5and using Function Key (FN) + F5/F6. F5 will decrease the brightness, F6 will increase it...

If neither of those work, Click

Cant turn the brightness down on my asus netbook


You should be able to use the "FN" key and "F5" key, press and hold the "Fn" key then while holding that key, press the "F5" key to decrease the brightness. Use the same(Fn) key and "F6" to increase the brightness.
