If your Acer shipped with a "notebook manager" in the Acer folder, check the display settings tab. Look closely at the bottom, there is a slider that will adjust settings if your fn keys are broken, like mine. Again, look carefully because if the slider is all the way left or right, you hardly notice the functionality at all.

The components that provide the brightness are the "inverter" and the "flourscent backlight tube". Inverters are known to be problematic,so I would suspect the inverter first.The inverter is in the bottom of your screens plastic housing.It's very easy to replace and it usually costs between $40 and $60.

I have acer laptop 5750G. It has a very dim light. tried to adjust the brightness but to no avail..


One thing that I can suggest to you that may save you money is to try a external monitor rather than repairing it at the moment.

This work computer's monitor is too bright while working in low-light environs. Does it have a brightness control that I'm not seeing?


You can adjust the LCD brightness by pressing the Fn key at the bottom left of the key board, and then press the left and right arrow key's at the bottom right of the key board.
