A very dim screen is an indicator that the screen inverter or the screen itself is going out. Start by checking the screen connections, they sometimes work loose. If the connections are good, then it's the inverter or screen and will need to be replaced.

Dell Latitude e5410...brightness changes from dim to bright on it's own. Not using battery powered. What could be going on?


You could be manually brighting it. Hitting the FN and UP arrow and Down Arrows Dim and brightens the screen, But if it does it on it own check your settings on Power Options in the control panel and on the left you will see Create a power plan sure setting are set to Balanced then click on next. You now get to pick to dim it when plugged in or on battery. I change it to "Never" becuase i like to see the screen brighter save your setting and your done.

How do you make the lighting on the screen brighter without the charger in ?


The screen will automatically dim slightly when it is on battery power, this is to conserve battery power. For maximum brightness connect the power adapter into the laptop.
On the Thinkpad laptops you can adjust the brightness by pressing and holding down the blue Fn key plus the Home key to brighten or the End key to dim the screen.

Screen gets dim at times.


Backlight is going bad.

Laptop screen too dark when used with battery


Are you using vista or xp?..The laptops to conserve power will dim the screen , you can , however, change it to brighter by pressing the "fn" key which stands for "functions"key. while pressing that, you should have another set of keys either to your right or obove your left finfers with the symbol fo a sun with arrows pointing up and down..press the fn and tap the up arrow key to increase the brightness.

Let me know if that works
