Answers :

Hold down the <Fn> Key on the bottom left side of your keyboard, then press either the <Arrow Down> or <Arrow Left>. In most cases it's the <Arrow Down> key, like on my e1505. If it doesn't work, then I would look in the control panel for Dell QuickSet. It will have options for power management, including display brightness.

If all else fails, just search in the control panel for Power management or Power Options.
If you look at the function buttons for example f1- f12.
there should be symbols in a light color. at the same time there will b a function key on your keyboard usually has the letters (fn) you hold this button down while pressing those other function buttons they all do something different so look for one that looks like a pics of the sun.
