Press and hold the "Fn," or function, key on your EEE PC-1000's keyboard.


Press "F3" while holding "Fn" to lower the brightness on your monitor.

The brightness on your computer decreases each time "F3" is pressed.

Each time "F4" is pressed, the brightness increases.


Press "F8" while holding "Fn" to decrease the volume from your EEE PC's speakers.

Press "F9" while holding "Fn" to increase the volume from your EEE PC's speakers.

Each time "F9" is pressed, the volume increases.


Press the "Ins" key while holding "Fn" to take a screen shot, or make a copy of what is currently on the computer screen.

Is there any way to brighten my screen on my acer aspire 5601 lap top


Examine the keyboard. There should be a symbol on most of the function keys (F1, F2, etc.). Look for one that looks like a sun or lightbulb, either with an arrow pointing up or with the sun/lighbulb filled in. Hold the 'Fn' key, and tap the up/bright sun/lightbulb key a few times. The screen should increase in brightness.

If you cannot find the specified keys, you may be able to adjust brightness from inside Windows. Right click on the battery icon in the taskbar and open 'power options'. Look for a sun and moon with a sliding bar between them. You might also be able to adjust brightness by customizing your desktop (right click on the desktop and look for the proper menu).

Luminosity of screen too low


I'm not familiar with that specific laptop, but there is usually a Function key, labeled fn on the lower right by the space bar, and then when you look at the keyboard, some of the keys have small pictures in the same color as the writing on the function key (usually blue) look for the picture that looks like a sun with an up arrow. Most laptops let you adjust the brightness that way. Just keep holding down function and pressing the brightness up key.

Screen is so dark. Is there a way to fix the settings


Hi:
If your screen is just slightly dark, you can increase the brightness by holding down the function key, and repeatedly hitting the brightness + key, which has a picture of a shiny sun on it.

If that doesnt help, you could have a LCD back light or inverter fail, and you can verify that is the problem by hooking up an external monitor to your laptop, and check to see if the picture quality is good.
