Cat sat on laptop changed screen brightness. its to dark how do i brighten monitor


Answers :

There is a master function key that you hold down while tapping another function located on the keyboard. This all depends on the model of laptop. Next time try to giva a little more info like make and model, which is located on the bottom. The function key or Fn key is usually located on the keyboard near the Alt and Control key lower left. while holding this key down, you tap the corresponding brightness key on the number of the keyboard, some times the brightness is on the 4 arrows on the right side of the keyboard...sometimes they are the numbers 6 or 7 look for what appears to be a symbol that looks like the sun or a light. Hold down Fn and tap the key that brightens the display.
Hello,
There must be an Fn-FX combination to increase the brightness. On my Toshiba laptop I press Fn-F7 to increase brightnesss and Fn-F6 to decrease it. On the function keys, look for the symbol of a sun (with rays) and an arrow (Up or down).

Hope it helps
