OK w7, you added that thanks.
well , dim features are complex on laptops
I bet it does not stay dim in BIOS screens
the F1 info screen, so...
but does only in windows running, right?

The PC autodims the screen for 2 reasons (by design)
a battery weak. or setup to run dim when on battery only mode, in windows power settings,
reason 2, the screen camera is used to see when the room is dark, if yes, it dims. this to is a a setting in power settings of windows.

click start, click control panel,click power icon.
click advanced, see "power" settings
you will discover many things are (on battery do X)
all laptops with windows, set it as you want.


also laptops dim if you move the pc from say bright window open (sun filled room)
to a dark room it is a feature on vast laptops
to save battery power, and also dims if the battery is weak or bad. all do that.

and last reload the drivers on you PC
at hp.com
go to hp, click support, then go to your PC find the drivers and load them for Windows 7, only at HP, nowhere else. ok?

1: dark room PC dims. (auto room dim can be turned off)
2: battery dead, or bad or weak, it dims . on purpose
3: bad w7 drives or screen Grapics chip GPU.
HP has em'
4: corrupted OS, win7 is infected. f11 reload time.
5: screen has CCLF black lamps as all do 2009 and older and all are dim now or dead. or purely random and ddeath soon for the CCLF tubes.
2012 PC this is and is LED so not CCFL but we do always look 2010 and back (age)

The fn key is stands for function. It's a function key that allows you to use functions or shortcuts to change the brightness of your screen to display your screen to another device's screen.

HP USB Wireless... | Answered on Mar 21, 2019

Yes. I'm assuming your printer has the old style Winchester plug instead of a USB jack. It's called a USB to parallel adapter or a USB to printer adapter.

sorry so slow, the spammers here pushed you to way down the list.
I guess ************ means expletive, words,? IDK nor care. but..

W8.1 is clear , no PC stated, at all just HP, 1 of 10,000 models
for near 4 decades !
PCs have up to 7 levels of passwords, even more on enterprise grade or for sure all very new PCs.
even some so good its impossible to hack out.
Why not just post your bad screen, as a photo, use your cell phone camera and post the screen below, click add photos.
in real PC repair shop the technician sees it with his eyes
and posting here in the blind is super useless,
we can not guess what you see, nor when !!


if just the windows login password lost
say so..
as that sure can be hacked.
in fact google that for 1million hits.

AIO are junk sure.

there are 2 issues here,
1: do you have a MS account? yes /no?
2: if yes, ask them MS how to delete your account. it is easy.
google how to delete my MS account. (millions ask a day)
3: of no live.com MS account at all , that if you windows login looks like username xyz123
and not bob1234@live.com Or outlook.com or x360.com
then it is not a Microsoft account locked in password but is what we call local. account.
4: if local account there is 2 ways, I never do this but here is the answer,
a: in control panel, click users, and delete them all 1 by 1.
I bet the last one refuses (IDK ) last admin refuses, due to running now, like shooting your horse while riding him (texas humor)
b: boot the PC and hammer F11, this invokes the magic windows HP full recovery. (F11 run fresh w10 install)
do that and its like new.
one answer.
I answered all ways, due to my not knowing if you say wanted to keep the MS live account for PC #2 , on order.
good luck,
next time get a Dell OptiPlex 3040 or newer, way way better, PC.
with a future too.

AIO means too cheap to buy a real Desktop, that is what it is.
some AIO love to fail; many have bad PSU that can not be fixed.

IN never came with w10 from, HP ever.
ok, HP told you not to use W10 , HP does not support w10 on this PC, now you can but some things will be dead.
I can list them all but will not now.

musical OS day, ?wow !@
you installed W7 from whom and what, ? MS disks or HP?
you installed w10 from whom? not HP but was MS, so was a fresh install or upgrade install, I cant guess or see what you did, not ever.
why not just run w7 and not upgrade, so HP will give you full support , why not?

head set, so does that mean , 3.5mm phone jacks dead
or are those USB head sets. we cant guess that either.
USB phones will cause chaos if not set up manually, ask.
3.5mm is child's play,
I own many 8540w, laptops.
all run W10 but I had to get the drivers to all dead chip from the chip maker, HP does not have them, because they dont support w10 here, nor do the security software work at all ever, there.
and more, the speaker control panel buttons are dead too...
until i fixed that panel, with a HP w7 force fed driver.
this pc came with XP ,vista or w7 , 32 and 64bit.
so what did you load, 32 or 64 bit, i cant guess that either.

so let me guess,
3.5mm dead, but not internal speakers,
so load this HP driver, off your official HP page.
its shows audio there see that, sp12345.exe
match the BITS (32/64) hint hint
IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver
sp46721.exe (27.8 MB)
this driver is certified on w7 only.
so if it dont work then we go the chip makers site
for a newer driver,

it must be a 4 way match.
OS same
bits same
chip same
and driver to match.
in all cases.

full support here, at HP
link is 64bit. back up one page to get 32'
