    I have a Soby Vaio, model PCG-7A2L. The screen went dark right as I was about to start a PowerPoint presentation. It is barely visible. I tried the Fn key and F6 to try and brighten to no avail and I tried the Fn key and the up arrow with no results. Any ideas?

    Thanks for any help.

Press the Fn Key plus the up arrow key, that should increase the brightness.

We could give you better answers if you could post the brand an model system you are using and more details about the problem.

My laptop is zoomed out way to far and i cant even read the words or anything. how do i fix this?

Hi georginabale...
Try to adjust your screen resolution and see if that helps
Click Start>Control Panel>Appearance and Themes>Change the Screen Resolution.
When the window opens try using the slider in one direction and then the other to see if that solves your problem.
Note: give it a minute to get to the resolution after you have clicked on it.
Please take time to rate me

Horrible fuzzy display on my external lcd tv monitor - sadness

You need to change the resolution and colour quality under graphics properties on second monito. Put the settings back under the advanced tab, your just pushing new monitor over its limits. You dont need to have the same resolution set as your PC screen. Hope this works for you.

Cannot get the Projector to see my emachines D620 Laptop screen. Press FN+F^ my computer screen goes dark but nothing shows at the projector tested the projector worked fine with other laptop

To check if the external video port on the laptop by connecting an external monitor to the laptop and see if it works. If it does work then the video port is OK and the only thing I can think of is :-
What is the highest resolution that the projector can display?
Is the video resolution on the laptop set higher than the projector's maximum resolution, if so reduce the screen resolution on the laptop.
