Acer laptop screen is dark an will not brighton l


I would like you to try 2 things:

1. Press and hold the blue Fn key then press the right arrow key a few times and see if it gets brighter. If that doesn't work try #2

2. Press and hold the blue FN key then press F5 or F6 not sure which one changes your screen. If it seems to mess something up it's ok. Just press the same combo that messed it up once or twice and it will go back to normal.

Please comment and let me know if it worked! :)

How do you make the screen brighter. The screen is dark,


Hello Carmen, Hi, If the brightness control won't do much, looks like the LCD back lamp an/or the LCD inverter module is going bad. eventually you won't see anything on the screen. Make do of the screen for now, until the lamp/inverter fails or replaced in advance. make the most out of it. You need it serviced by a technician or the dealer.

Compaq Presario CQ50 Comes on but the screen is very dark!


The Presario's have an intensity control for the screen.

Mine is holding the function button (Fn) down an pressing F8 for brighter, F7 for dimmer.

The marking on my F7and F8 show an asterisk indicating "sun" for intensity.

My screen is to dark to read. Everthing else is working. My laptop is only 4 months old.


Hello !

The most common reason for a dark screen, is a backlight problem. Your backlight or inverter board is faulty and needs replacement.

Since your laptop is under warranty, contact Toshiba for a replacement. They should either repair or replace your laptop.

Hope this helps.

You can use the function keys to increase the brightness. Also if you go to Start, Control Panel, Power Options you can change the settings to give you more monitor time.
