I have  a probook 440 laptop on which I am unable to increase the brightness level by pressing the Fn key and then F10 (increase brightness) button. It just shows me the bar but does not increase it. Other keys when pressed with Fn are working. I tried browsing through the display and power settings on the laptop but did not find the suitable option. Is there any other way I can increase it?

Hi all,

Bit of a tricky one here.

I just bought a replacement screen for my Dell Studio 17 1745. I don't believe it is actually a dell replacement part but here is the link. http://www.laptop-lcd-screen.co.uk/laptopparts/DELL-STUDIO-17-1745-17.3-LAPTOP-SCREEN_12053.asp

Anyway fitted it, fairly straight forward, had some bother with a dodgy display cable but other than that seems to be working fine. Now here's where it gets tricky.

If I press brightness on the f keys, or through the system display properties I get nothing, not even mildly brighter or dimmer, yet the on screen brightness display shows up. Figure that one out! I'm totally stumped I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the AMD HD drivers and got nowhere. I tried downloading a third party brightness and display adjustment piece of software but it couldn't even recognise my screen let alone let me do anything about the brightness.

And (this might help but to me it only makes things more confusing) when I start up the screen is so dark it's virtually off, no backlight or something I don't know but I can see a vague negative image of the windows logo. But once loaded the desktop and all programmes run normally, except the issue with not being able to change the brightness (which by the way isn't a huge problem, I'd increase slightly but it's fine).

Can anybody help me? I'm out of ideas
 

A:Replacement screen and now brightness won't increase

Does the replacement have exactly the same part number as the original screen ?
It should be written on the back of the screen assembly.

Assuming that it does double check all the cable connections, especially those to the inverter (which usually controls the brightness). Is it the original inverter ?

Just got a new 7570. One blaring problem is the screen isnt bright AT ALL. for example, when holding up my cell phone next to the display on this page its obvious that the color white on the 7570 isnt really white but a faded gray color. Is there any way to make the screen brighter or calibrate the colors so white is actually white or is dell just using garbage panels for their inspiron line.
I have 2+ more weeks to decide if i want to return this laptop.

A:New Inspiron 15 7570: Any way to increase screen brightness?

I assume you've already maxed out the display brightness using the keys on the keyboard dedicated to that purpose?  If so, make sure Adaptive Brightness is disabled under Advanced Power Options > Display since that can sometimes reduce brightness due to ambient lighting.  If that still doesn't get you where you want to be, then it's possible the display simply can't go as bright as you wanted, although comparing to a smartphone isn't exactly fair.  Smartphones are designed to be usable outdoors, which requires far higher brightness to achieve, whereas laptops typically are not designed for that particular use case -- but the result is that smartphones will practically always be brighter than laptop displays.

I have a really old monitor and it's very dark. I have the brightness turned all the way up on the monitor but it's still really dark. Does anyone know a way to get it brighter? Is there a program or something that I could run that brightens the display up?

I know this is possible because you can adjust the brightness in games and then minimize the game and Windows will be brighter. I just need some more practical way of doing it.

I don't know if it'll matter but I've got an NVIDIA GeForce3 (Ver. 6.14) graphics card.

And no, I'm not buying a new monitor quite yet.

Thanks for any help!
 

A:Increase brightness on old monitor?

You may be able to adjust the brightness in the display properties of your video card. Go to Display in Control Panel and then to settings and Advanced. My ATi card has gamma and brightness settings, yours should have some sort of setting too.

I like to set brightness to 50% at all times, but over the time it resets to the full strength (probably because of games), so I have to cut it by half again to 25% and then again to 14%, until it can not be lowered anymore, last time I ended somewhere around 3%.

I tried to set it to full, uninstall GPU drivers, restart, install them again, but it never got fixed.
It is not really a problem, I have it at 18% right now, I am just wondering, what is causing it?

A:Why does brightness increase over the time?

Display control centers usually mess with these settings.

For example AMD catalyst control center or Intel HD control center run services which might reset whatever you do.
making fixed changes there ( In control center ) could solve or at least explain what is going on.

Also Windows updates ( on fresh Windows usually ) reset screen settings.

I have a new z500 that I've downgraded to Windows 7 64bit. For the most part I have everything working. I accidentally hit the brightness + (yes, +) and it instantly dimmed the screen to where it is barely viewable. It seems that hitting that one key decreased the brightness to the minimum amount. I've rebooted, looked for a setting in the BIOS, hit the Brightness +/- and can't increase the brightness. It is interesting because the other hot keys work correctly. I've even upped the brightness in the Control Panel, but nothing seems to work. The screen is extremely dim whenever the machine is powered on (including the BIOS), not just in Windows. I tried a lot of intel chipset drivers, the available Intel HD 4000 drivers in Win8 and win7 too, but nothing working. Can someone please help with how to up the brightness?

i like to think that all though i am certainly no expert, i can usually figure out most of my computer related questions... however, this one has me baffled.

i am using an e-machines laptop and when it is in battery use, the screen dims so that it is sooo dark that i can barely see it. when it is plugged in, it is absolutely fine, so i know that there is nothing wrong with the screen. i am aware that it is a setting that is supposed to conserve energy when using battery power, but there has to be a way to shut it off. i am willing to sacrifice battery life so that i can see my screen.

i have already been into the control panel and can't quite figure it out... even when i adjust the "brightness", it doesn't help the screen display when i am not using a power adapter. surely there must be some way to get the same display settings when using battery power as when it is plugged in.

Anyways, I about a month or 2 ago, I went and bought a new laptop since my old one was starting to die on me and stuff. It's a Samsung ATIV Book 4, and it's really nice. This is the first hick up I've had with it so far, and I noticed it happening today. I noticed my screen was really dim today as I was using it, so naturally, I use the Fn key to turn it up, but nothing happens. Up in the top left of the screen, it shows a little brightness meter going up and down as I turn it up and down, but nothing changes. I went to the power options menu and tried to adjust it there, and alas, nothing happened. I googled this problem to see what I could find, but nothing really helped... I even tried disabling the display driver and restarting it, but that didn't do anything. What do you all think?

I have had my acer for probably about a year and half or so. I have been having a problem with the screen/brightness for awhile now. Before, whenever I adjusted the screen, the brightness just cut out. I could just barely see what was happening. I fixed this by just closing the laptop and putting it to sleep, then opening the laptop and turning it back on. The brightness returned to normal. If i adjusted the screen again though, it would cut out. I assumed it was some connection problem with the screen. Now my screen won't light up at all. There is no brightness, and the display is very faint. Does anyone have any solutions in which I could fix this problem at home instead of having to pay money?

Now, my problem is that I'm unable to adjust the screen brightness of my laptop.

In the mean time, I've tried rolling back my display drivers, with no success, and also updating to the latest driver set, which has also not worked. I'm not sure where to go from now, does anyone have any ideas to fix this?

A:Laptop screen dims even though adaptive brightness is turned off. What can I do?

After you try everything (including changing the power options, and Dell Intelligent Display), try this.
It may be caused by intel's graphic control panel. When you're using battery, and if you have another separate graphic card, most likely you're switching over to intel's graphic card to save power. Open the screen (below), and make sure the power conversion
option is set properly.

Hello everyone,
I'd like to know how (if possible) to make it so that my laptop does not automatically change screen brightness when plugging in or unplugging.

You see, there is a brightness setting that is saved for plugged in and unplugged, and when you change between plugged in and unplugged it reverts the screen brightness to that saved level.

For example if you have it unplugged and you set the screen brightness to 100% then plug it in, it saves the unplugged screen brightness to 100%. Now when you're plugged in you change it to minimal brightness. Later when you unplug and leave the screen brightness will revert back to 100%.

I'd like to disable this automatic screen brightness change.

Ok, basically here is my problem.

My screen brightness won't go above 70 on the brightness bar slider.

The reason I know my screen can be brighter is because this JUST started happening recently. (well like three months, but I haven't had time to deal with it until now)

And anyway- heres 'symptoms'

The Windows Mobility doesn't allow the slider to go more than 70

Doing FN + F7 for screen brightness to increase using Toshiba hotkeys thing it doesn't go brighter. (it works but not more than 70)

Right as I am restarting right as it boots up it is much brighter then after like a minute it goes to the 70 brightness mark.

It hasn't always done this.

Is this purely hardware issue with Toshiba? Is this like preventing the screen from being 'too' bright?

How can I get it to 100? On restart right before it dims the screen is much much nicer / brighter... It would be nice to have it brighter all the time..

I could do a system re-install... but I'm right in the middle of my school year and I don't really have time at this time...

Thanks for ideas and help.

Besides closing pretty much everything non-essential there isn't much you can do, as your stuck with your hardware being as its a laptop. Stopping Aero from running and changing to the "basic" theme can also reduce the memory and CPU consumption as well.

Normally I would suggest upgrading the RAM, but with 4GB thats enough already, so I don't think you're going to be able to change the situation.

Its been an year since i bought hp x360 102tu laptop. It has 4GB Ram and an i3 Processor. I am looking at ways to increase its performance.  At the moment after usage of the laptop for 1 year i feel the laptop has slowed down a bit.  I thought of adding another 4 GB RAM however from various online reviews i understand that changing the hard disk drive would actually result in noticeable performance boost. Hence now i am a bit confused on what is the best decision to take. Can someone help me with some key inputs.   

A:How to increase performance of my laptop

Hardware upgrades are most likely out so the best thing is to review what you have running in the background and try and reduce the load. Adding RAM only helps if your actually using up the RAM you have. If you run more than one program at a time, have several open tabs on a browser or multi task with a lot of open windows on the desktop. Maybe adding some RAM would help. Crtl Alt Delete then open Task Manager can give you a look at what is using memory and how much you have in reserve. Also see if you have any programs that you don't use and can uninstall. Some programs load partially upon start up and use some resources. Such as RAM for updating, or allowing for a quicker launch.  Many times the sluggishness you have comes from adding extensions to browsers, a more complex security program, or other background processes that take away performance. In general on notebooks you cannot improve performance per say, but you can lean out what uses that proccessing power.
