It should be in your settings for the Digital Vibrance.

Try this:
Right click the desktop, left click "personalize" > display settings > Advanced Settings > GeForce 8xxxM GT, >Start the NVIDIA Control Panel, >Adjust desktop color settings> Digital Vibrance. Move it up to your desired level + 10% or so. I hope that helps you out and have a great weekend.

When plug is remove from laptop the screem get darker

This is natural. In the power settings, usually it is set to reduce the brightness when laptop is on battery power.
you can increase the brightness, but it will drain the battery quickly.
To increase or decrease brightness, use one of the buttons indicated on the keyboard with 'Fn' button on the bottom of the keyboard.
Thanks for using FixYa!

My screen is so dim on my dell vostro 1500. my kids play educational games on it and i'm worried it's so bad for their eyes. the fn key does not work. please help!m thank you.

You can try to go to the power settings and adjust to brightness of your portable system. There should be a battery icon on the lower right portion of your computer, double click it and you should have the power setting. On the bottom portion, there should be a lever where you can set the brightness higher. if this does not work try to adjust contrast in the nVidia Control Panel (assuming you have an nVidia card).

In Vista, go to
Display Settings->Advanced Settings
Click the GeForce tab
Click "Start the NVIDIA Control Panel"
Click the "Display" category
Click "Adjust desktop color settings"

How do I adjust brightness on my Dell Latitude D6...

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.

Monitor black out

Someone adjusted the brightness on the system for AC power mode. Turn on the system with the AC power plugged in, hold down the "Fn" key in the lower left of the keyboard, then press the up arrow in the lower right. This will increase the brightness; set it at whatever level looks good to you.

Dell Vostro 1500 - just replaced a broken LCD screen. New screen is dim. I already checked color connections and screen brightness (FN up and down). How do I brighten my screen?

You are probably not going to like my answer but your new screen may have a bad Backlight or connection, that is what lights up the lcd panel. Check your connection at the inverter just to make sure, sometimes these connection can get reversed or get loose during the reinstall. I would take it back apart and check it from the main cable on the back all the way to the motherboard.
