Sure...those settings are usually in the video control panel section..open start, settings, control panel(assuming you're on xp) and then go to advanced settings for that video controller

How can i turn down contrast on my laptop


Acer Aspire one

Brightness is controlled by the Fn and arrow keys.

Contrast can be controlled from the software.


FN key, + left/right arrow key's


other Acers

Log on to your Acer laptop and click on the "Start" button. Choose "Control Panel" from the menu.


Double-click on the "Display" icon in "Control Panel" and select the "Settings" tab.

Check the "Color Quality" settings and make sure they are set to either medium or high.


The high setting will give you better color quality and contrast, but it will also use more system resources and shorten battery life.


If you are operating on battery power you may want to move the setting to medium.


Hold down the "Fn" key and press the right arrow at the same time.

This key combination will increase the brightness of your screen.


To decrease the brightness and contrast, hold the "Fn" key down and press the left arrow. Continue using these key combinations until you have found the optimal setting for your laptop display.


hope this helps

My contrast and my brightness is very dark on my laptop and i can't see anything. How do i make it bright again?


Most laptops adjust brightness and contrast using the function key. Pressing and holding the function key ("Fn") and press the up or down arrow keys to increase and decrease the brightness. You can determine the keys brightness or contrast by looking for keys on the keyboard that have pictures of a sun or a half moon.

Dark screen


If you are unable to change the contrast with the 'fn' key and the brightness controls, usually represented in the top row of keys as a sun icons, one brightens, one dims. You may have a bad brightness/contrast inverter in your display. It's a small circuit board in the display that controls the brightness. They do fail. You can find them for most models but depending on your technical ability, they can be a little tricky to change.

We have an Acer Travelmate 4200 and the screen is too dark how do you brighten the screen??


Most laptops have a function key (F1-12) with a picture that looks like a sun. Press and hold the FN button and the appropriate Function key. You should get a "slider" to adjust the contrast and brightness..

Some laptops also come with a program to make other display adjustments. Look at the Control Panel to see if you have one of those on your list. If not, check the "Display" application on the Control Panel, and under "Settings" see if you can adjust contrast or brightness that way.

Screen display


It's hard to find a Compaq manual their site, but they indicate you'll find this in the help files on your computer.
This is usually done with a combination of keys-look for the Fn key and a key that looks like a sun symbol. It may have an arrow pointing up or down. Use these keys together to change the brightness.
