Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an evesham Pro Voyager C510 with a dim display. The Fn + F7 LCD key / brightness etc makes no difference. The display was on and off for a short while, and is now so dark, you can only see faintly that the screen is working. I can use an additional screen from the rear socket, but that defeats the term 'Laptop' Tried batt out, power switch held for 60 seconds mains on etc 20 times, but no luck.Hmmm - any thoughts?

Same happened to my C510. I solved it by drilling a 7mm dia hole in the screen trim casing near the lid close latch to allow more light onto the sensor that auto adjusts for ambient light level. Its near the left end of the red transparent cover. Remove the screen trim for more precise positioning. Worked fine for a year or so then the GeForce Go 6600 completely failed. Anybody any ideas where I can get one because the C510 is a great laptop?

How can I dim my screen?


Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters. Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness. Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness. Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness. Fn must be held down as you continue to tap. Hope this helps.

How do i make my screen brighter on presario v2000


Decrease Brightness (fn+f7) The fn+f7 hotkey decreases the brightness of the notebook screen. The longer you hold down the fn+f7 hotkey, the more the screen dims. Decreasing screen brightness conserves power. » To increase screen brightness, press the fn+f8 hotkey.

Increase Brightness (fn+f8) The fn+f8 hotkey increases the brightness of the notebook screen. The longer you hold down the fn+f8 hotkey, the more the screen brightens. » To decrease screen brightness, press the fn+f7 hotkey.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

The lcd display of my laptop hp dv6915nr remains dim or barele redeable


Maybe the display brightness is low. Go to Control Panel and check somewhere. Also, look for a brightness key. My F7 and F8 have brightness up/down in rectangles.
Press the 'Fn' (Function) key and press the brightness up key. You're up and ready. Go, enjoy!
