Most notebooks have functions built into the keys at the top of notebook keyboard (F1-F12) or the numeric keys.
On my Compaq X1000 notebook, you hit hold down the function key at the lower left corner and then hit the key you want to activate. You should see labels on the key that would indicate a brighter screen or a dimmer screen. For me it is Function F5 to dim the LCD and Function F6 to brighten the display I think but I am on a desktop keyboard now at work.
Lowering the brightness on your notebook will also save battery life by even 1 hour or more in some cases and I lower the brightness on my notebook at night when there is no daylight or overhead lights dimming the LCD display.
Your owners manual should have a description of the functions that can be activated along the top row of keys of your notebook.
I have a Laptop NEC Windows XP Pro SP1 Intel(R) Celeron(TM) CPU
1.00GHz 120MB of RAM
The problem is I cannot find a way to turn of the Screen Contrast and the Brightness to a bit lower So that it won?t be too shiny or too Bright
Anyone have any ideas that might help it would be greatful.
