Usually, hitting the 'F7" button while holding down the 'Fn' button (function button) will brighten your screen.

Also, if you're running on battery, to conserve battery power, most notebooks will dim the screen... you can override those settings by going into the control panel and into the power settings (easiest found on the old 'classic view').

If none of that works, your video display could be starting to go bad. Let us know how you fare and we'll go from there!

Good Luck!

Screen is very dim..can barely see it..bright adjust doesnt help.


Hi, your LCD screen's backlight has gone out. This is a hardware failure, and you'll need to have it replaced or repaired. THe LCD screen consists of two parts, the LCD screen which creates images for you to see, and the backlight which forces light through the LCD so you can see it. Your backlight has gone out, so your screen still has images, but no light.
