Usually, there should be buttons on your keyboard that you can use to adjust that run across the top. Sometimes, you need to hold the "Fn" button in addition to pushing these up and down buttons to adjust the brightness. Usually, they have little pictures of a sun (one dark, one white).
You can find the user manual for your PC here, on HP's website:
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.

WHILE HOLDING THE BUTTON DOWN DRAG IT DOWN THE SCREEN TO THE BOTTOM.AS YOU DO THIS YOU SHOULD SEE THE WHOLE BAR MOVING DOWN, PERHAPS FIRST MOVING TO THE RIGHT OR LEFT VERTICALLY AND THEN ON DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN. WHILE AT THE BOTTOM RELEASE THE LAFT BUTTON ON THE MOUSE, THE BAR AND START BUTTON SHOULD NOW REMAIN IN THE LOWER SECTION OF YOUR SCREEN..

NOTE: You can also lock or unlock the OSD by pushing and holding thebutton for 15 seconds. (Top of the buttons on right side)
You have to click the Start button and choose "Shut Down " and click the mouse on that. If that does not work, try pressing Ctrl + Alt+ delete simultaneously. What they call the task manager will come up. choose Shut down and click on it. It should shut down
The one method that will always work to shut down a frozen computer is to hold down the power button on the front of the computer until it turns off. When you turn it back on, it will give you an option of different startup modes, and unless it really is a serious problem, you can just go with "start Windows normally".
