MY BLUE BUTTONS DON'T WORK


Maybe a crumb under the Fn key. Give it a stab and see. Otherwise go to start-control panel-monitor-adjust brightness. Hope this helps.

How to increase brightness without fn+f6 keys because for now the f6 key is not working


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.


Press "F4" while holding "Fn" to increase the brightness on your monitor.

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


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

Each time "F8" is pressed, the volume decreases.


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.


hope this helps

I have brought a laptop of samsung rv 509. i have installed windows 7. when i started windows my laptop brightness is low. but when i plug in power then brightness is good. how to solve it?


There are actually buttons on your laptop that are made for changing brightness.
Hold the "fn" key, and press the "Up" button while holding the "fn" key.
Do the same thing to lower the brightness, except hit the down key.
"fn" + "Up" Raise Brightness "fn" + "Down" Lower Brightness
Thanks for using FixYa.
