Laptops have a brightness control using the Fn key (lower left on the keyboard) and a special function key that shows an icon representing a light or the sun--one key is for increasing brightness and the other is for decreasing.
Be advised that if you are operating on battery only, the brightness will be less than if on line power. You can change that with the power options, but it will run the battery down faster.

How do i turn light on or off

If you're referring to your display brightness, you can control this in your Settings. Use the Settings App and Open the Brightness &Wallpaper menu. Select the brightness level on the slider and flip to auto-brightness if you like. This will adjust brightness based on ambient lighting detected by your front-facing camera. If that's causing you problems, disable the auto-brightness and just control it manually from the slider.

The picture is very dark and want to brighten it

If your keyboard doesn't have a brightness control button (mine is F6), open System Preferences and click on the Displays control panel. Move the brightness slider to the right to increase brightness. If you don't want the computer to automatically adjust brightness uncheck the box next to Automatically adjust brightness as ambient light changes.

How can i adjust the brightness of my tecra m1? pressing Fn & F7 or F6 doesnt work.hope you guys could help.

The brightness is automatically controlled by a "Brightness Sensor" However, you can compensate the brightness by using the Toshiba Brightness Sensor Control. In order to use this utility, you must set the Brightness Sensor in Toshiba Power Saver to "ON"

My monitor is not bright and the brightness levels are all 100

change the brightness level of your video card program;
for Nvidia you can access the Nvidia control panel, for ATI you can access the Catalyst Control Center and
for Intel you can access the display settings.

The 'fn'/'f7' no longer controls the brightness of the screen. is there another method to control the brightness?

You may use Fn+F5 or Fn+F6 along with the arrow keys on the keyboard to control brightness.

Cannot control display brightness

you can change the brightness from the power saving settings in the control panel.
if the dedicated keys don't work you probably need to install the drivers for the keyboard/multimedia keys, download them from the sony website.

Ibm thinkpad 600x brightness control

There is no otherway. becase the slides sends direct signal to inverter for adjusting brightness. You can adjust brightness the
other way ,through graphic cards property, but that is only adjustment for the color and if you do make it bright, you'll be loosing the vivid color..not so natural.
