Try holding the "FN" key while tapping the "F10" key. If memory serves me correctly that will brighten the display on some laptops.
Good luck.

Try useing your graphics card's control panel you can find it via the windows control panel. if you have not installed your Graphics card's driver software goto the company who made the card and download the latest driver. then once the driver is installed goto windows control panel and click on the driver's control panel. Then goto desktop color corection and move the brightness slider to the right until it's bright enough.

SOURCE: the screen is almost all dark but i can some what

there should be a Fn key typically to the left of the space bar, its used in combination with a Sunshine icon key located near F10 key somewhere to adjust the screen brightness. , if you find the keys and pressing both Fn and "sunshine" do not help, you *may* have a burnt out backlight inverter on your laptop monitor. you can tell, if your windows is on the screen but there is No backlight, not dim , just no backlight.

Computer screen to dark how do i get to brighten up


Hi
Inorder to brighten up the screen ,try to find the key present on keyboard like "Fn" and also one more which resembles like sun.
This Sun like key will be present in the Function key(F1, F2 Etc)
Press both of the button at same time and adjust the brightness as per you requirement.

And also you can change the same in the power options in the properties where we can change the screensaver

Screen dark


Have you tried to brighten it by the keys on the keyboard? Most times you have to Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that brightens the display.

If that does not work then 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.

Greetings to brighten or darken the screen it would be using the FN key simultaneousness while pressing the icon key some are sunshine and half moon for dark look for the obvious key that looks like it would either be a light or dark symbol. Thanks for using FixYa! Do not forget to place a vote. John

I have had the backlight and inverter replaced but still dark screen--Could you help? it is a dell latitude d610. Can I brighten the screen and would a new battery help? Thanks


You can use the function keys to try brightening the screen, but it doesn't seem like it would help. Hold down the function key (the blue "Fn" key next to the Windows logo key) and press the up arrow in the lower right corner of the keyboard repeatedly. Every time you press the arrow (with the function key held down) it should brighten the screen by one degree.

If the backlight and inverter have both been replaced, the problem is most likely either the screen itself, or a pinched cable somewhere in the connection between the screen and the motherboard or video card. If you know how to take the laptop apart, you can check for pinched cables or harnesses -- if you don't see any, it's most likely the screen.

My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun


The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.

Sorry.

I have a sony viao pcv-frv27


are you on your battery or plugged in? It's not likely to make it as dark as you described but if you press the function key 'fn' key and usually the up arrow key (which has a sun symbol) it should brighten. From there if this dioesn't work you can try downloading new graphics drivers as last ditch effort but after that will require opening and checking connection to make sure screen hasn't died.

Screen is too dimm to see at all


Go to Control Panel...to DISPLAY...and you should either find a adjustment there to brighten your screen. Or look On the "F-Series" keys or somewhere on your keyboard for a Brighten SUN or dark SUN, which you have to press the blue key along with that F series key to brighten or darken the laptop. Good luck

Do you get the same result if its plugged in or running off battery? Try holding down the "FN" key or function key and using one of the Function keys i believe its F6 on the sony's to brighten up your screen if that doesn't work try downloading and reinstalling your video driver and finally you may have a video card issue
