Most laptops have a function key (F1-12) with a picture that looks like a sun. Press and hold the FN button and the appropriate Function key. You should get a "slider" to adjust the contrast and brightness..

Some laptops also come with a program to make other display adjustments. Look at the Control Panel to see if you have one of those on your list. If not, check the "Display" application on the Control Panel, and under "Settings" see if you can adjust contrast or brightness that way.

My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun


The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.

Sorry.

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.

Lines On Monitor of Acer TravelMate 4200


Possibly. You have created a dead pixel area, try massaging the area firmly. Just hard enough for it to change colors, but not so hard that it turns black. Then turn it off and leave it overnight. You may have to do this several times to get it to come back. Depending on the damage, you may have a dark spot in this area, or it may not work at all. This is just about the only thing you can do for this other than screen replacement.
