There is a master function key that you hold down while tapping another function located on the keyboard. This all depends on the model of laptop. Next time try to giva a little more info like make and model, which is located on the bottom. The function key or Fn key is usually located on the keyboard near the Alt and Control key lower left. while holding this key down, you tap the corresponding brightness key on the number of the keyboard, some times the brightness is on the 4 arrows on the right side of the keyboard...sometimes they are the numbers 6 or 7 look for what appears to be a symbol that looks like the sun or a light. Hold down Fn and tap the key that brightens the display.

Hello,
There must be an Fn-FX combination to increase the brightness. On my Toshiba laptop I press Fn-F7 to increase brightnesss and Fn-F6 to decrease it. On the function keys, look for the symbol of a sun (with rays) and an arrow (Up or down).

Hope it helps

Have you tried the brightness buttons on the left hand side of the top keyboard row. If that does not change the brightness there is a malfunction of some sort.

I cannot adjust the monitor brightness, it's too dark..


Since this problem was posted generically.. Monitors, whether they are the old tank style CRTs, the newer flat panel LCDs or the newest LEDs, all have 'Brightness' controls. All are typically marked with what looks like a bright, or radiant light bulb, usually offset to one side, to show that "adjusting the ?? that way" will brighten the screen. Most LCDs are now Menu Driven, so looking for a button that says "Menu" is your starting point. You will need to find your adjusting control and the 'light bulb' to figure out which way to brighten or dim your screen. Once found, adjust to eye pleasing brightness. If your brightness is at 100%, you are on your way to needing a new or used monitor. Typically, there is no Brightness settings in the operating system. Your enhanced video card maybe doing it to you, They usually have their own control center and the types of abilities vary greatly. If you hav a friend that can loan you a monitor, borrow it to test at least the output your monitor is receiving. That will tell you whether you are having a problem with your video card or your monitor.

Dark screen


If you are unable to change the contrast with the 'fn' key and the brightness controls, usually represented in the top row of keys as a sun icons, one brightens, one dims. You may have a bad brightness/contrast inverter in your display. It's a small circuit board in the display that controls the brightness. They do fail. You can find them for most models but depending on your technical ability, they can be a little tricky to change.

Display is very dark


Dim screen is usually caused by a bad inverter board especially if you get video to external monitor. Usually cost $100-$200 depending on laptop.

Hope this helps!

Dark scree


I too have the same problem with the same monitor.. tv looks great OSD looks great.. pc is dim.. This has nothing to do with the inverter board or the backlight.. I believe that there is an issue with the components that render the Computer video.
