I just had the same exact problem. Then a did a couple more searches and found a suggestion that I restart my laptop while connected to AC. And now it works just fine!

Hi:
It sounds like the inverter or backlight has failed on your laptop. Try to connect an external monitor to the laptop to verify this. You should be able to toggle between the two displays by holding your function key down, then hitting the crt/LCD button. If the external monitor works good, then you have had a hardware failure.

How do I turn down brightness on my hp Windows 7 computer?


Hi,

Below are instructions to adjust brightness on HP laptop

    • Press the "Fn" key with the computer turned on and hold the key.

    • Press the "F7" or "F8" key on some HP laptops, which are printed with a small sun icon on the key. The sun icon is filled on the function key for dimming the laptop. The other key is printed with a hollow sun icon for brightening the screen.

    • Press the "Fn" and left arrow keys together on some HP laptops to turn down the brightness. The "Fn" and right arrow key will increase brightness. Press and release the right arrow key repeatedly, while holding down "Fn," to decrease the screen brightness slowly, or hold the keys to darken the screen as low as the setting will go.

  1. For HP Monitors

    • Press and hold the down arrow key on the front panel of the monitor below the screen to turn down the brightness on the external monitor to the lowest setting.


    • Repeatedly press the down arrow button to dim the monitor gradually.


    • Press the up arrow key on the monitor to increase brightness.


Regards,
Rahul

Brighten display screen


Normally, on the keyboard of your netbook, there is a "Fn" key next to the bottom left "Ctrl" key.
after you finish booting up and have the screen veiw, press and hold the "Fn" key, then at the top there are a row of "F' keys, usually the F6 key is the key you would press to increase the brightness of your display. Each time you press the key the brightness should increase, if you press it pass the maximum brightness it will go back to a low brightness and then increase in brightness each time you press the "F6" key.

Remember, you have to hold down the "Fn" key as you press and release the "F6" key.

Is there any way to brighten my screen on my acer aspire 5601 lap top


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).

How to adjust brightness of compaq presario CQ42 laptop


You can do this with function keys for that model. The letters may be different, if they are, refer to the pics of the keys; they are always the same.
From the Windows desktop, hold the Fn key and press the f7 key c00776226.jpg to increase or the f8 key c00776225.jpg to decrease the brightness of the display.

I have nc 6220 laptop hp after windows xp professional restoration i have dim screen problem


Couple of possibilities here...

Hardware may be set for low brightness, look at keyboard for icon of a sun. Press the function key and this button to increase the brightness.

Driver may be needed - get from manufacturer website

Backlight / flourescent light is near end of life - may need to be replaced.

Inverter Board for back light is having issues - may need to be replaced.

You can replace the inverter board without replacing the backlight, but if changing the backlight itself, the inverter board needs to be replaced as well.
