Go to your adjustments for your webcam and see if you can adjust it from there

Lots of laptop have power profiles that switch when either AC is plugged in or removed.
There should be a memorized screen brightness setting in your power management options. Usually it's located in the built-in Windows settings under Control Panel -> Power Options -> Edit Plan Settings.
You should see a brightness slider for the screen for "On Battery" and "Plugged In". Pick your brightness from there and it should stick.
Another way is to use the "FN" key on your keyboard. Hold down the FN key and press the associated brightness picture, which on your Acer, should be the RIGHT and LEFT arrow keys. Keep holding the FN and tap the right or left to increase or decrease the brightness. Usually the setting will stick this way, but somethings you have to use the control panel method for it to really stay.
You also might have another program for power like Acer ePowerManagement which should have the same settings as windows, but layed out differently.

Dark picture..not bright picture


The whole point of a webcam is to be able to see the person you are speaking with, and let them see you. When the image broadcasted by your camera is too dark, the person on the viewing end won't see anything but shadows and dark shapes. Learn how to brighten your webcam image so the people you chat with can see you.

Place lamps behind and to the side of the webcam. This casts a light on your face, but the lamps will not wash out the image because they are behind the camera. Turn off lamps that are behind you. You have trouble seeing things when you are looking in the direction of the sun or a light bulb. Your webcam has the same problems. Don't make it stare at a bright light. Open up a white screen on your computer to brighten your face. The white screen will create the brightest possible light from you computer screen and help lighten your webcam image. This option is best when lamps are not available. Open up an empty tab in your Internet browser, or a blank Notepad document, and expand it to the full of your screen. Adjust your webcam settings. The settings available to you will depend on your webcam, but many of them offer a "Brightness" setting that you can increase to lighten your webcam. Open the program that came with your webcam, then look for a "Settings" or "Options" menu. Increase the "Brightness" setting until it has lightened your webcam enough.

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

Its aspire acer 5735. The screen is dark will only get bright if i press Fn F6 but comes to dark again after that. What can I do? I am running on windows 7


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

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

My webcam is very dark when I am using it to yahoo messenger but when I am using just to take picture of myself I had a very clear view


Hello and Welcome to fixYa!

You can change the webcam settings, by going to messenger>preferences>webcam broadcast> camera settings.
In camera settings you can increase the brightness and exposure to endure better and brighter Picture/video quality.

Have a good day,

Concerned.
