Try going to control panel, then device manager, and try right clicking and updating all drivers that have to do with graphics or your screen. If this doesn't do the trick then try finding the display drivers manually.

You will not find contrast controls for most laptops. This is a funtion that you found on most desktop CRT monitors. However, xp and vista has some features on smoothing and such of your viewing icons in the basic right click on desktop/select properties

Adjusting contrast

Acer is a popular name in the world of both desktop and laptop computers and as a rule these devices are user friendly.
Computer owners may want to make adjustments to their monitors to change the look and feel of the screen.
Every user will have different needs when it comes to viewing the monitor screen, but adjusting the monitor settings to your liking is easy.

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.

How can I adjust the contrast on my laptop, I can't see very well

Hold the Fn key down, then press the Right Side Arrow key to increase brightness. (Bottom of keyboard, 5th key from the right)

Granted, that doesn't increase the contrast, it increases the Brightness.
Should the brightness not increase to a level that you feel is comfortable, then I suggest you have a Backlight, or Inverter going bad.

Laptop brightness

sometimes the power options on a notebook determines the brightness, but if you look to your keypad, there is normally keys that adjust the brightness along with the Fn(function button) But if you have damaged when dropping it, one of the backlights may have been broken within the screen.
