Having problems with your Acer Aspire 4520 Notebook ?
Battery or Screen problem
\015 Okay my sister was using my computer on battery power and the battery ran down and before I could get it plugged it went into stand by mode but now, even though the battery says it's fully charged the screen s really dark. Very, very dark. I can make out certain things. Enough that I was able to get into the settings and try to fix the brightness levels, you know on the balances, power saver and high performance but the screen remains very dark.\015
Solution? - not sure yet but having read solution by Hector_ahab, tried various F() buttons in conjunction with Fn button. Pressing Fn with F6 switches between black and normal screen on my Acer Aspire 5920. Fingers crossed!
