Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
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.
