Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook

Acer Aspire 5630 screen brightness adjustment...

How do I do it. Please let me know if you can. There seem to be buttons for brightness and contrast (the l-arrow/ r-arrow buttons) but I can't get them to do anything. I've pressed control with them, control-alt-control shift...  any combination of the above but nothing happens. I'm sure the screen is too dark. Please rescue me from darkness!!

    My screen is way too dark, I can barely see anything at all. I've tried adjustig the brightness with the function and arrow keys, but it doesn't do anything. I've tried fiddling with the backlight, as well, all to no avail.



    I'm getting desperate!

    My acer aspire disk crashed, disk was replaced, now I can't change the screen brightness anymore with teh buttons, they don't work anymore.
    After four timesz restarting the pc, the brightness dropped to 40%; so I'm working on a very dull screen which is very fatiguing for the eyes.
    I tried to re-insert de acer disks, but the pc was not recognised as acer anymore (since there is a new disk installed). So I'm stuck up with whta seems to be a non resolvable problem...

You press the function (Fn) key and the left/right arrows, not the Ctrl / Alt, shift buttons

AS mentioned by sandrew, Fn left and right arrows does the trick. On my 5630 there are icons that look like a bright sun and a dark sun. Funny thing is the meanings are the opposite. I clean and reloaded my laptop with the highest version of Vista, I did not want to load the Acer junk back on so I search for a while as well, but it is right in front of our noses. My problem is I use an external keyboard most of the time and did not see the obvios.

I had this problem with my 5630. I reloaded the drivers and that didnt help, so I re-installed the whole lot from some back-up disks I made when I bought it. Bingo all is ok now.

Try the following:

For Windows Vista / 7
1. Press the Fn+Left Arrow Key for brightness down and Fn+Right Arrow Key for brightness up (the Fn key is located at the left side of the space bar)
2. If that won't work, go to Start > type Power Options and click on the Power options icon.
