Function (Fn) button not working?.

by porker928 / February 25, 2011 3:34 AM PST

I have a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro V3515 windows xp, but can not get the Function (Fn) button to adjust brightness keys (F8 dimmer and F9 brighter). I want to get the monitor to be brighter on battery power - will fixing the Function (Fn) help, or does that just adjust the computer when it is running on mains power?.
Thank you in advance.

Many laptops required some HELPER APPLICATION to connect the Fn keys to the brightness. Look again for such an app from this laptop's maker.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
