Screen is very dark


Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard.
It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters.
Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard.
These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7.
They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness.
Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness.
Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness.
Fn must be held down as you continue to tap.
Hope this helps

My gateway 450rog computer screen wont come on after i press the power button why


Make sure the machine has power.


The battery might be dead, so connect your notebook to the AC power adapter and plug the adapter into a working AC outlet.


If you have a power strip or surge protector, make sure it is on.


If you are having trouble with battery power, recharge it if it has been fully discharged or replace it if necessary.


Check to make sure the computer is not in "sleep" or "hibernate" mode.

Press a key or the touchpad and wait for it to respond.


Try pressing the power button.

Make sure that you fully engage the power button.


You should press and hold the button for at least half a second but no more than three seconds for the machine to power on.



Adjust the screen's display brightness because it may be too dark. Press and hold the "FN" key and press the key with the icon to increase brightness.


This icon looks like an "up" arrow and a picture of the sun.



hope this helps

No display but ram and processor is okey..


1.Confirm the Gateway notebook is not powered off or in standby mode. Tap the power button to turn on or wake the computer.

2.Check the screen brightness. Hold down the "Fn" key, then tap the up arrow on the directional pad to increase the brightness of your Gateway 400's display.

3.Toggle the notebook display. If you have an external monitor hooked up to the laptop, hold down "Fn." Press "F3" until the display switches to the laptop, or until both the laptop and the external monitor display an active screen.

Dark picture on monitor


Occasionally, you may find your laptop's monitor is too dim for your liking. A normal desktop computer's monitor has an on-board menu system that lets you adjust the brightness and picture control settings as you please. A laptop monitor has no such controls. You can adjust the brightness of your laptop monitor using your laptop's keyboard.

1. Press and hold the "FN" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is the "Function" key, which operates much the same way that the "Shift" key does: It allows keyboard buttons to be used for multiple purposes. It's located in the lower left corner of most laptop keyboards, next to the "Windows," "CTRL" and "ALT" keys.

2. Look at the top row of keys on your keyboard for a key with a tiny triangle pointing upwards and the symbol of a sun on it. This is the "Increase Brightness" key. With the "FN" key held down, press the "Increase Brightness" key. On most laptop keyboards this is the "F7" key, but it varies depending on the model.

3. Continue to hold down the "FN" and "Increase Brightness" key until your dim laptop monitor has reached the level of brightness you require. A laptop monitor can only get so bright. It will stop at its highest setting.
4. Release the "FN" and "Increase Brightness" keys. You have now fixed your dim laptop monitor.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

I can not find where to change the brightness on my laptop


for most laptops look for a FN blue key in the lower left corner this is then held down while the bright or darkness is then tapped for plus or minus. Now this can be an up arrow, a plus sign, or any other key with a brite or sun on it. You will also notice a coresponding dark as well.

If the brightness in the properties section is up, and your brightness keys on the keyboard doesn't do it, then you'll need to take it in for repair-good chance the back light is going..

Wen i conented the projector it not porject to my gateway lap top


Connect the projector and hit your function (FN) key and tap the F8 key. This should toggle the display to the projector.

If that doesn't work, look at your FN keys (top row) and look for a blue label for CRT/LCD and use FN+ that key.

The LCD screen on my Gateway M-6317 is dim. How


Press and hold the 'FN' key and tap the key that has the picture of a sun and an up arrow (or some other similar picture that dictates brightness - there should be two different keys that affect brightness one to increase and the other to decrease). Once you have the brightness set to your liking quit tapping the 'brightness' key and release the 'fn' key

Hi,
You may have to adjust the brightness.
Hold down Fn and look at the F keys for a "sun" icon, use them keys to adjust the brightness.
