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! :)

My Laptop 6400 screen is very dark, how do lighten? I have replaced battery twice in last 3 1/2 yrs.


ldriscoll3:
The brightness of the screen does not generally depend on the health of the battery.

On the keyboard of your laptop is a "Fn" key. You need to press and hold the key down while you also press the "Up Arrow" key repeatedly. Each time you press the "Up Arrow" key while holding the "Fn" key down, the display will get progressively brighter until you reach maximum brightness. If you go too far and it gets too bright (not likely), just press the "Down Arrow" key while holding the "FN" key down until it's the perfect brightness

This is explained on page 33 of the user manual that you can download from here:

How do i make my screen brighter please? its driving me insane!


I have an Acer lap top and there is an Fn (function key) Icon on the <i and the i> keys that mimic a sun device. If you hold down the Fn key and tap the I> key down over on the right sideof the machine, then those taps should brighten the screen. Holding down the Fn key (left side) and tapping the <i key will dim the screen.

THE LAPTOP WORKS FINE BUT THE SCREEN IS VERY DARK


Every laptop that is coming to the market has a button the bottom left just next to the "Crtl" button. This button says "Fn". On the other hand please find the buttons that are marked with dark Sun or a white sun. These buttons are for decreasing or increasing brightness. Just press down the "Fn" key (or button) and then press the key with the white sun on it. The brightness of the laptop screen will increase.
The keys with sun symbol on it are usually the arrow keys.

Good Luck!

Screen is dark at start up


If its running on batteries the screen brightness will dim quite a bit. If on AC adapter it should be full brightness, but this is adjustable in either case. With the computer up and running, press and hold down the Fn key and push the up arrow to make it brighter and the down arrow to make it dimer.

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

Screen is dark and needs to be brighter


look on your keyboard for the key with the 'fn' meaning function and then press the up arrow key on the keyboard. This will make the screen brighter this happens when you are on your battery to save power. You can also do it manually by accident.

Display brightness


You should have an "Fn" key. It's between CTRL and Windows key on the lower left corner of the keyboard. Hold down the Fn key while pressing the UP arrow key.
