How does one make the screen brighter on a laptop computer


Normally there should be two keys to turn up and turn down the bightness on the top of the keyboard partnered with the F keysLook for a lightbulb symbol, one showing it getting brighter and one dimmer. First press the key a few times and if the screen gets dimmer or brighter you are good to go, but sometimes it might be the second function key, so you will have to look for the key on your keyboard to activate the second function, and normally that key is called the FUNC or FN key, and should have the same color and the second function options. So hit that key, by either pressing it once, or holding it in.

How to maximize laptop screen brightness


Turn up the brightness by the keys on the keyboard. Most times you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that controls the brightness.

Also on laptops you can change the position of the lcd screen to make things appear brighter or clearer.

So does it sound like your laptop is running and booted up all the way except the screen is blank? if so try the steps below:

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

My mytouch 4g lcd backlight is dim but it gets brighter when i plugin the charger, is it the lcd? Or the connector to the lcd.


I'm not sure what a Mytouch is but on laptops if you don't have the power cord plugged in the display is normally dimmer or darker to preserve energy because it is running off the battery. You can make it brighter to some degree by pressing the correct keys on your keyboard. Once you plug the power cord in, laptops automatically display a brighter screen. This is all normal protocol.

Dell mouse not responding; diagnostics results says test passed. mouse works on other PC


Hello,
There is a very good chance it's one of two problems. First, while theoretically you can connect tons of USB products, sometimes USB ports can be kind of hinky... Try unplugging something else USB based and plugging in the mouse or try several different ports. Also be sure it's not plugged into a USB hub and is going directly into your computer. If this works play with the arrangement of your USB devices until you find a configuration that works, maybe you'll have to switch out a printer or external drive while using your USB mouse...
If this doesn't provide a solution the next thing to do is to uninstall the pointer device driver in device manager and allow it to re-install.
If you don't have an alternate mouse to complete the task, here is the keyboard shortcuts for Windows although depending on your version of Windows it may be slightly different.
-First hold the windows key and hit the r key (win+r)
this will bring up the run menu
-Next type mmc this will bring up a management console
-Next press the ALT key and hit the down arrow key
(this should drop down the file menu, if it doesn't please try ALT+F)
-Use the arrow key to scroll down to Add/Remove snap in and hit enter.
-Use the arrow key to scroll down to Device Manager and hit ALT+A to add the device manager to the console. Hit enter.
-Make sure local computer is selected if this menu comes up and hit enter.
-Hit enter one more time bringing you back to the console with the device manager added.
-Hit tab to get to the center console and scroll down to mouse.
(If tab isn't doing anything please hit the ALT key once.)
-Hit enter to open the tree if it isn't already
-Scroll down to mice and other pointing devices (or something along these lines) and hit the right arrow key to expand the tree again.
-Select the USB mouse with arrow keys
-Hit the alt key again then the down arrow (not together) and then the right arrow key until you get to the action menu and use the arrow key to go down to uninstall and hit enter.
-Wait a moment and then go back to the action menu (you may have to hit tab just keep trying tab and the down key (not together) until a menu opens. Go over to the action menu again and choose scan for hardware changes. The computer should recognize the mouse and now work.
I hope this helps you. Thank you.

How can i make my screen brighter?


usually there are keys that you press in conjunction with another key like the Fn key and a key that looks like a bright Sun, or a Dark Sun, shape, on one of the keys usually on the number keys on top row under Function keys. So you press the Fn key and at same time. tap the Bright sun key, and it will step up in brightness, plugging in the adapter also makes it brighter too.

Hi how do i get the screen to be brighter


Usually if you have a lcd or crt the brightness control will be on the monitor itself. If you have a lap then it's usually a "fn" key. Look on your keyboard for one or two keys that have a sun or light or something like that one them. You will most likely have to hit the function key (fn) first then the brightness keys.
