Re: screen glare on acer 5610-4610

In the hardware department buy tinted window film for under $5 and cut it to size. The lightest shade is best. Don't peel the back off. Clean the PC screen and apply the film with tape. If you cut it wrong, try again. There's plenty left. Voila! Problem solved for pennies!

I'm not sure what either of those suggestions would have to do with glare on the screen.
Could you try to describe, in detail, what this "glare" is that you are talking about?

There are Function Keys to do this.

from Troubleshooting section. Keyboard (if contrast and brightness function key)

and Page 10 of the manual
Display Keep your display clean. • Keep your head at a higher level than the top edge of the display so your • eyes point downward when looking at the middle of the display.

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentional pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

Glare from laptop

LOL, not much you can do about the glare unless you buy some type of cover that goes over the screen.

Have you tried darkening the screen by using your keyboard keys that controls the brightness and darkness? Usually they work in conjunction with the FN function key.

I have an acer aspire using xp. cursor is frozen in the center of screen. Pad doesnt work. Reset but didn't change anything. Did fn-f7 didn't change anything. I can only get around using my tab key...

Plug in a USB mouse to give you some mouse functionality. Then go HERE ( and search for your specific laptop model and try to see if they have a touchpad driver for your model.

Also you can go to the device manager in Windows (Right Click my computer and choose Manage)
find the touchpad driver in the list, right click and uninstall. Then reboot your computer and have Windows reinstall using plug and play (it will do this automatically)

Good Luck.

How do i make my screen brighter please? its driving me insane!

I have an Acer lap top and there is an Fn (function key) Icon on the <i and the i> keys that mimic a sun device. If you hold down the Fn key and tap the I> key down over on the right sideof the machine, then those taps should brighten the screen. Holding down the Fn key (left side) and tapping the <i key will dim the screen.

Screen is dark and needs to be brighter

look on your keyboard for the key with the 'fn' meaning function and then press the up arrow key on the keyboard. This will make the screen brighter this happens when you are on your battery to save power. You can also do it manually by accident.
