This unfortunately sounds like what happened to my Sony all in One windows 7 desktop computer. It crashed 3 months after purchase, and screen neither goes light or dark now. Hate the though of having to buy an new one.

Assuming all of the connections are secure this is most likely due to a failing LCD inverter which is basically the backlight of the screen. If it's less than a year old cash in on the manufacturer's warranty. If it's not you might as well buy a new one. Hope this helps.

How can I dim my screen?


Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters. Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness. Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness. Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness. Fn must be held down as you continue to tap. Hope this helps.

My dell inspiron 546's monitor has gone dark the screen is still visable but really dark how do i make it bright again i already tried the brightness and contrast on monitor


It might be that the CFL lighting tubes on your monitor have failed, in which case they need to be replaced. Borrow a screen to try on your computer to test if it is in actual fact the your screen that is faulty. This is normally fixed by a computer technician! If it is under warranty return it!

The auto-darken feature(monitor goes dark on dark


In your monitor panel you'll find 4 buttons. Press the menu button and get into Magic Bright. There you can choose the one that best suits you. You can even set to Dynamic contract where the monitor adjusts the brightness according to the elements on the screen

The screen is too dark to read anything though the power comes on. i tried to increase the brightness but did not work NEED HELP!!!


Sounds like your backlight or inverter is on its way out. You can pick one up on ebay.  Google how to check backlight/inverter issues with your model.

The possible reasons is that you have turned down your brightness and contrast without realizing it, to fix this simply look for a brightness key on your keyboard and turn it up. If it is missing or did not fully work, see if you can notice any image and try to get into your Display properties, click the setting tab and go into advanced and turn up your brightness and contrast from there. If this does not work, im afraid to say you have damaged your LCD screen and this would result in your dull screen appearance. Get a computer technician to take a good look at it to see what has happened if this is the case

Screen to dark on my toshiba e10 qosmio laptop


Hi

Have you increased the brightness? If memory serves on the Toshiba you should have a "FN" key and on either on of the number keys or the F-keys there should be a little icon that looks like a "sun" and an arrow up, there should also be similar with arrow point down.

Hold down the FN key and at the same time press the sun up arrow key, and it should increase brightness.

Also some laptops have power saving settings where the brightness is turned down to prolong battery life, so check the power saver settings from the control panel.

Hope that helps
