Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My Dell Studio 1737's screen goes dim when I unplug the charger, using the 9-cell battery. As soon as I plug the charger back in, it's bright again. I've messed with the power plan settings, and I don't have the "adjust display brightness" setting anywhere that I can see within the control panel power settings area. Any ideas? Thanks!
