My laptop screen is dark I can barely see anything.

How to brighten up, or what is the problem with my laptop. Nobody knows how to solve this problem. I've never run into this problem before.

You will have to perhaps look in your BIOS and check the setting on your screen. Also when you plug in your portable computer charger, your screen should brighten up! Find the Sun and a "Fn" key and arrow key. Press them to illuminate the screen too. Worse to come is to replace your screen. Maybe this isn't a problem with xp. There is software you can download from the manufacturer to adjust your screen under xp. Hope that helps. What is the model of your laptop?

    Hi Ted,

    See if you can access the Windows system restore using the following method.

    Stop of the laptop and leave it like that for 10 seconds.

    Tap here to f11 as soon as you press the power button until you see a message "Windows is loading.

    On the next screen, select your Keyboard Layout and on the next screen, select Troubleshooting.

    Select 'Advanced Options', and then select System Restore.

    Click on yourcurrent system O and then wait as the system restore window opens.

    Choose a restore point at least 48 hours before the problem arose first and then proceed with the restoration of the system.

    Kind regards

  • I can barely see the inactive tabs in Firefox 29. They are muddy gray and difficult to see. Can they be clarified a bit?

    I can barely see the inactive tabs in the default theme of Firefox 29. They are grey muddy, hard to see, a space nearly impossible to read, and indistinguishable from the used for additional tabs. The inactive tabs can be clarified a bit?

    Or can you recommend a theme of the add-on that will facilitate the inactive tabs see? Among the other themes I've tried are not supported in release 29.

    Hi Andrew

    Sorry, but I'm a little confused about your problem. What you mean exactly with the system restore? You restore the operating system to an earlier time with the System Restore tool, or you have used the restore CD?

    If you open Windows Explorer, you can see all the data in the folder my pictures?

    • Right-click on an empty part of the desktop and then click Properties
    • Click on the settings tab
    • Move the full screen resolution slider to the right
    • Click OK
    • If you are prompted to confirm the change, click Yes

  • Can't see anything in dialog boxes and layer/tool names are missing. Help!

    Adobe Help.jpg


    I noticed that after updating to Photoshop 2015. Since then, I have uninstalled re-installed via creative cloud, 2014 and 2015 but still having the same issue.


    I don't see any options in the pop up dialog boxes (new image, the image size, curves, layer options etc...). I also can't name/Rename layers and can not see the tool names. Before the update of 2015, I've been on Photoshop 2014 for a good half a year with no problems so I don't think it's a problem with my operating system or laptop. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    This could be. They have revamped the user interface in 2015, so if you receive just with him, I guess, but since you get it with 2014 also, it could be something the OS.

  • Portege R700 internal to screen very dark but can use the external monitor

    Hi guys,.

    just had a question about my Toshiba Portege R700 as the screen went white and I couldn't see the screen or sometimes I could and it was very dark!

    However, the laptop could start up as normal and I could use it normally through an external display!

    Subsequently, I replaced the screen and it started working again (happy days)!
    However, a few weeks down the line the same problem again apparently did screen dies.

    I take off again and disconnect and reconnect the screen just to see if that would solve the problem and he did, back and working again. I even tried the old screen I swapped and that works too!
    So I paid £140 + for a new screen that I didn't need, my question is what is the problem?

    Could not find anything else on this topic so would appreciate any help thanks
