Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook ?

Monitor brightness The monitor is less bright when the power is pluged than it is with the power not pluged in. How can I change this? This is on a HP pavilion 6000 laptop. Thank You.......... John


Answers :

This is normal for almost every laptop - it is to conserve battery power. However, if you want to adjust the brightness anyway, you can do so by holding down the "Fn" key, and then hitting the number key that has the blue 'brighter sun' making on it. This is usually the F8 key, with the F7 key being the less bright key.
