Screen brightness TOO DARK!!!

[ Edited ]

I've got an HP EliteBook.  The screen brightness is TOO DARK! 

 

Yes, I've tried function + f11, I've tried f11 + up arrow, I've looked at the control panel display settings.  Nothing works.

 

Any ideas, anyone?  My Toshiba has MUCH BETTER brightness.  I hate this HP.  Help!

Re: Screen brightness TOO DARK!!!

What model laptop are you using?

 

Are you on battery?  Look under the Power Options in the Control Panel.

Re: Screen brightness TOO DARK!!!

The model is an "EliteBook" and I am plugged in, not using batter.   I did look for a solution in the Display category in the Control Panel, but found no solution there.  I will look for Power Options in the Control Panel.

Re: Screen brightness TOO DARK!!!

I checked into Power Options, but there was no solution there, either.    I suspect that the screen on this laptop simply has very poor display capabilities.
