Most times you have an additional key on a laptop called FN mostly it is located next to the windows button (left bottom on your keyboard). On the key the text is in the same color as the brightness logo's on your F8 and F7 keys. Just press that button, hold it and than adjust brightness with F7 or F8.

Please let me know if it solved your problem.

Deem light in display


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.

I need to know what the keys f1-f12 keys usage.


The uses for the function (f1-f12) keys varies based on which program you have open at the time. Different programs use them for different things.

However, your computer also has some default uses for these keys when combined with pressing the fn (function) key.

fn + f1 locks computer

fn + f2 changes our power use profile

fn + f3 puts the computer to sleep

fn + f4 puts the computer into hibernation mode

fn + f5 changes the display/output mode

fn + f6 decreases the screen brightness

fn + f7 increases the screen brightness

fn + f8 enables/disables wireless connections

fn + f9 enables/disables the touch pad

fn + f10 turns the cursor overlay on/off

fn + f11 turns the numeric overlay on/off

fn + f12 turns scroll lock on/off

How do I adjust the screen brightness?


Hi,

Press and hold fn button on your keyboard, then press F7 to decrease brightness and F8 to increase brightness. That is Fn + F7 or F8.

If F7 or F8 doesn't work try F6 or F9.

Or you can just start from F1 to F9. One of these buttons certainly would work.

Regards.

Screen went almost dark after cat walked across keyboard


Laptop keyboards have a function key that changes the brightness level. You access this by using the FN key on the bottom of the keyboard along with the brightness level, possibly the F8 key. There should be icons on the 'F' keys to show which key will increase the brightness on the display.

I hope you find this information helpful.

Screen is so dark. Is there a way to fix the settings


Hi:
If your screen is just slightly dark, you can increase the brightness by holding down the function key, and repeatedly hitting the brightness + key, which has a picture of a shiny sun on it.

If that doesnt help, you could have a LCD back light or inverter fail, and you can verify that is the problem by hooking up an external monitor to your laptop, and check to see if the picture quality is good.
