SOURCE: Keys dont work.alternative way to change brightness?

Yes you can go into your display properties and look in the settings tab and look for advanced click that and open color tab or the overlay tab, color tab should get your brightness turned up, And if you can't see you can go into your bios and adjust your brightness from there and get it back to where you can see it if you can't write me back here so we can try another method. Ok I hope that helps you out somewhat, Oh yeah you can also hook up an external key board into your usb connections and you should be able to work everything from that too.

SOURCE: Screen on Aspire 3000 is very very dim

Hopefully it is this easy. The Fn and left arrow combination should dim the screen. To brighten the sceen, try Fn and right arrow.

If this does not work, then try other combinations using your Fn key to make sure the Fn key is working.

SOURCE: fn birghtness key not working

If the "fn" key works with other "fn" command buttons it may be the drivers. Your machine came with a CD of drivers. I would visit Dell's Support website, plug in your "Service Tag" number (found on a label on your machine) and download the latest if your CD is missing. Re-install these drivers. Look into the "Dell Quickset Utility."

How can i turn down contrast on my laptop


Acer Aspire one

Brightness is controlled by the Fn and arrow keys.

Contrast can be controlled from the software.


FN key, + left/right arrow key's


other Acers

Log on to your Acer laptop and click on the "Start" button. Choose "Control Panel" from the menu.


Double-click on the "Display" icon in "Control Panel" and select the "Settings" tab.

Check the "Color Quality" settings and make sure they are set to either medium or high.


The high setting will give you better color quality and contrast, but it will also use more system resources and shorten battery life.


If you are operating on battery power you may want to move the setting to medium.


Hold down the "Fn" key and press the right arrow at the same time.

This key combination will increase the brightness of your screen.


To decrease the brightness and contrast, hold the "Fn" key down and press the left arrow. Continue using these key combinations until you have found the optimal setting for your laptop display.


hope this helps

Can you please help me. My aspire one acer netbook 10.1 inches is soooo dim and i can hardly see what i am doing! please can u give me a solution to solve this problem??


The easiest way to increase the brightness is to hold down the (Fn) key, on the bottom left of the keyboard next to the ctrl key. While holding down (Fn) tap the right arrow key to increase the brightness. The left arrow key can be used to decrease the brightness. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad LCD screen.

Brightness setting


Press the little blue "Fn" button next to the left "Ctrl" button. Then whilst still holding down the blue "Fn" button, tap the left and right arrow keys accordingly to increase/decrease the brightness.

This "Fn" button is how you use all of the other blue icons which are secondary functions of other buttons (i.e. to turn the number pad on you need to press "Fn" and F11 and repeat the process to turn it off.

Try that and if that doesn't work then the screen may be bad.
