Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad G41 Notebook ?

Dim monitor When I turn on the laptop, the screen is dim and I could hardly see things on it, but when I connect it to the power point projector, the result on the projected image is good. How can I make the screen brighter so I can see what I am doing?


Answers :

You can press the Blue FN key and the Arrow up button at the same time, You can also open your Display properties by right clicking on your desktop and click properties and then the settings tab after settings tab click advanced lower right of display properties then your color tab there should be a brightness option there that will let you adjust many other functions that will help you get the best picture you can, Hope that help you out let me know please if not we can figure out another way.
