I'm not aware of any buttons to change the display settings on this computer. However, I think I can help you find Hardware and Sound in the Control Panel. Hopefully all you will need to do is change the "View by" setting. I suspect that right now it is set to one of the icon views.

 

Open the Control Panel, and in the top right corner click the drop-down menu next to "View by:".

Select "Category."

You should now see a list of categories, including Hardware and Sound. 

 

And now hopefully the steps I posted before will work for you. Please let me know if you run into any trouble.

To adjust brightness (in Windows 7): Go to Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options. At the bottom of the window there should be a Screen brightness slider. Adjust the slider to your desired brightness.

 

To set up high contrast (in Windows 7): Go to Start > Control Panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center > Set up High Contrast > make sure the checkbox next to "Turn on or off High Contrast..." is checked. Then, on the keyboard, press the combination of keys it suggests (on my computer it's left Alt + left Shift + Print Screen). A message should appear asking "Do you want to turn on High Contrast?" Click Yes.

 

I hope that helps! If you're not using Windows 7 please let me know which operating system you're using.

I am also trying to adjust the brightness on my HPOmni 120-1125 (it's far too bright).  However on the control panel there is no 'hardware and sound'  option, only 'sound'.  Also there is no 'hardware' option'.  So how can I find the brightness button?
