Dull screen lighting

The screen has gone dull as though it is conserving power. This might have something to do with the 'Automatic LCD dim feature' but I'm not certain. I simply want to get it back to its usual brightness. The keyboard is damaged so I cannot use the light and dark keys. Is there any other way to solve this problem?
Thanks. Brian.

    Hi shaggy242,

    I have an Acer Aspire 1360. It is about 4 to 5 years old. I have seen advice about using the 'Fn' key but that does not work in my case. What is a 'bios' setting?

There may be a bios setting to adjust the screen brightness or a utility installed in Windows - What brand and model laptop is it???

    I read the users manual for your machine and i dont see any mention of brightness controls in the BIOS. You may try looking in the "power settings" in Control panel to see if there is any settings to adjust brightness. it might help to change the power scheme to "always on"

    If you can't find any settings to change then i would replace the keyboard - this company has em for $40. I've done business with them before.

    replacing the keyboard is pretty easy on this series - 3 screws on bottom of the laptop underneath the power button strip (the piece above the keyboard), then some screws at the top of the keyboard.

Monitor gone dull

there is a key on the keyboard which controls brightness. on mine it is the second key on the right, of the bottom row. it has a small sun on it. Press this key at the same time as the function key (on mine, bottom row, second from the left, blue key marked Fn) - and the monitor will brighten up.
