Dell Latitude screen will not adjust for brightness

My Latitude D520 screen brightness will not adjust. When using the hot keys the brightness contol appears on the screen and moves up and down with the buttons but the screen itself stays constant at about 25% brightness. I have changed settings in the control panel but to no avail. The laptop did this shortly after purchase but rectified itself after a couple of days. Its now out of warranty and has been like this for a month.

Unable to connect to Wifi. Computer says WLAN card is disabled. Use internet switch or hot key. Can't find switch and don't know what a Hot Key is.


The dell D520 doesn't have any switch to power off the wireless. You will have to use the hot-key method. Just press Fn+F2. If you have curiosity:

Look for a key labeled "Fn" (blue lettering) on the lower left side of the keyboard

Hold the "Fn" key and then use the Up/Down arrows to adjust brightness.

If that doesn't work, reboot your laptop and get into the BIOS. There is a screen for brightness. I don't recall how it is labeled, but it's one of the last pages as you cycle through the BIOS options.

Can i adjust the brightness of the screen?


Laptops are provided with a combination key that can increase and decrease brightness. Find on your keyboard 2 keys with a bulb and an arrow key. Mostly you'll have something like a sun. Hold down your FN key (near your left ctrl key) and press one of those keys depending on whether you want to increase or decrease brightness. In Dell the keys will the arrows keys themselves
