How to increase brightness of toshiba satelite m30 laptop


You should be able to adjust the brightness by holding down the function key (Fn) and then press the button that has a picture of the sun and a plus + button by the side of it. You can also adjust the brightness on a more permanent basis by looking at the power settings within the operating systems control panel.

The brightness of my laptop is very high


There should be a function key (usually labeled "FN") on the keyboard. There will probably also be buttons with brightness adjustment labels on them. Usually the arrow up/down keys adjust your brightness while the FN key is pressed. The adjustment keys are usually labeled with a picture of the sun with an up or down arrow beside it - almost always in a different color than the letters on your keys [maybe light blue?]. Otherwise you may have to adjust it via software in the control panel. Good luck.

When I unplug the power cord the monitor is bright. How can I keep it bright with the power cord in?


Normally the screen will dim when you UNPLUG the power cord. Is that what you are experiencing?

That is quite normal and is a feature designed to lengthen battery life when the machine is not connected to mains power.

In any case you can adjust the screen brightness. To do this you should be able to use the function keys together with the Fn button. You should find two function keys (along the top of the keyboard) that have symbos like a sun and a Plus sign and a Minus sign on them. Press the Fn key (bottom left on the keyboard probably) and then tap the 'sun +' key to brighten the screen.

Hope this helps. If not, please respond with a comment and I will give further details.

Laptop brightness


The physical control is found by holding the 'fn' key in lower left and pressing a function key. Which function key...look across the top row of 'f#' keys for one that has a little sun shape and an up arrow. Press the 'fn' key and this function key to up the brightness.

Software control can be found by going into the Control Panel and selecting Power Management. Here you can define how bright (or dim) your computer is in different states (plugged into power or on battery). You can also define how the computer behaves when left inactive for certain amount of time and how the power button works when pressed while computer is on.

For more info, use your Windows help feature or your Medion user's guide. They should be able to tell you how to control brightness.
