Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

When I press the up and down button to adjust the brightness, it only adjusts a little bit. This started when I had the monitor replaced. Is there a fix?

    I have pressed it repeatedly. The window pops up to show dark or light. The adjustment bar moves completely from left to right but barely adjusts the brightness. I have a very hard time seeing the screen when I use my laptop in the car. (not while driving of course)

Since its a diffrent monitor with diffrent parts, the adjustment may have a higher or lower effect on it. unless its the exact match with the old one then it should work the same as the old one.

you have tried pressing the buttons repeatedly to lower it more?

I purchased my Norcent computer monitor four years ago. Now, the sub-menu Contrast/Brightness selection keeps popping up on my screen. So, I have to either push the #1 button to Exit or the #2 Adjust...


Hi,

It seems to be a hardware issue with the buttons. They are stuck or the rubber cushion under the button has gone bad. That's the reason they are getting pressed automatically. You may take to a local store for a small repair.

On your monitor there should be a dial or button that you can use to adjust the brightness to your satisfaction. The icon is usually represented by an image of the sun.

LG 19 in monitor


it would be helpful to know which monitor you have - each one is a little different... basically, you need to press the "menu" button on your monitor, use the arrow buttons (on monitor, not keyboard) to get to the brightness adjustment screen, hit set, then adjust with arrow buttons, and hit set again, then menu to exit.

Samsung 731N Auto Adjustment


I'm having the same problem. Started three days ago. Really annoying. First I downloaded a driver because that was reccommended over plug and play. But that did not fix the problem. I ended up pressing the menu key (1st on left) and while holding it down I wedged a little piece of paper to hold the key down and the popup menu's have stopped. The box can be the brightness/contrast or auto/image reset/color reset ...
it doesn't matter, they all popup after pressing buttons left and right. Have no answer to correct the problem but at least I can now compute without these stupid menus.
