When you first turn the machine on hit F2, that will take you into the bios menu, i don't know what version your machine is using, but the information is usually on the first page, you should find it easy enough because it will be next to the CD/DVD drive.

oxide and or carbon formed..resit them again into the slot(s)..

but if there's no such displaying, esp if hangs/stops/power off during installation..
[plz give priority to step1(b), it may b the sole cause]..

hi there, my sisters dell laptop does the same thing. My best guess is that a hard knock on the graphics card and knocked a few pins out of it. This is something that a average person can not do. My suggestion is to bring it to a computer shop and tell them that you think it's the monitor connections.

On your model, it looks like it is Fn + Left Arrow. Hold down the Fn key and them press the left arrow a few times to your desired brightness.

Examine the keyboard. There should be a symbol on most of the function keys (F1, F2, etc.). Look for one that looks like a sun or lightbulb, either with an arrow pointing up or with the sun/lighbulb filled in. Hold the 'Fn' key, and tap the up/bright sun/lightbulb key a few times. The screen should increase in brightness.
If you cannot find the specified keys, you may be able to adjust brightness from inside Windows. Right click on the battery icon in the taskbar and open 'power options'. Look for a sun and moon with a sliding bar between them. You might also be able to adjust brightness by customizing your desktop (right click on the desktop and look for the proper menu).
