    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.

I had a guy to hook up my computer to it as a monitor; so could watch movies. he tried to set the resolution. now it just says,not set for this resolution. wont do anything else...cant even get to anything...

James if the laptop was powered on when trying to connect to the Emerson tv you might want to release the power from the capacitors on both the laptop along with the TV; simply by unplugging both power sources for at least 30-60 secs then reboot and make sure to have the VGA back connected when booting .

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.

Cant get the tv to go from 720 to 1080

Changing the resolution of 720 to 1080 is dependent of the input television. Make sure the HDMI cable connection or a PC cable connected properly.
If you uses a PC input, you should set the resolution with 720 to 1024 first. then set to higher resolution. If there is a problem when doing settings dark picture or not support, it means that the TV does not support the resolution.
Perform way above the HDMI connection too.
Hope this helped solve your problem.
