Look into the keypad for a "sun" indication representing brightness. Now use this key with the key control to move the brightness up or down.
Since the model was not specified I cannot figure but give a generic answer.

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.

Hi odinaressu07,

Every Laptop has a different steps on adjusting the brightness. It is usually varies from model and brand. However, understanding the process of how to adjust the brightness will help you to change your own setting. Most of the time, laptops brightness can be adjusted using the function keys in conjunction with another key. Like for example, pressing and holding down the function key (FN) and pressing the up and down arrow keys. Your keys may be different, so please use the function key (FN), then look for a keys on the keyboard that have pictures of a sun or a half moon. That is the easiest way of identifying what key adjusts the brightness.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How can i turn down contrast on my laptop


Acer Aspire one

Brightness is controlled by the Fn and arrow keys.

Contrast can be controlled from the software.


FN key, + left/right arrow key's


other Acers

Log on to your Acer laptop and click on the "Start" button. Choose "Control Panel" from the menu.


Double-click on the "Display" icon in "Control Panel" and select the "Settings" tab.

Check the "Color Quality" settings and make sure they are set to either medium or high.


The high setting will give you better color quality and contrast, but it will also use more system resources and shorten battery life.


If you are operating on battery power you may want to move the setting to medium.


Hold down the "Fn" key and press the right arrow at the same time.

This key combination will increase the brightness of your screen.


To decrease the brightness and contrast, hold the "Fn" key down and press the left arrow. Continue using these key combinations until you have found the optimal setting for your laptop display.


hope this helps

Have a new gateway m-1631u. I have set the power setting to the energy battery saving power. I also set it to have the brightness dimmed a bit due to my sensitive allergy eyes plus I have chronic...


I have the same laptop, and the same problem. I went into the BIOS settings and disabled BIOS power management features. Windows can still use the power management features, but it is not competing with the BIOS doing the same thing.

This helped reduce how often the brightness pops back to max, but doesn't completely solve the problem. It will still go to max, and most of the time back to the set brightness after a second or two. Very annoying, but better than just being stuck at max brightness.

I think either the backlight inverter is buggy, or the driver that talks to the inverter is buggy. This is my biggest complaint with this laptop.
