How to adjust screen brightness?

Hi. I have an HP EliteBook 2740p. There are icons on the F9 and F10 keys to adjust the screen brightness up or down. But when I hold the Fn key and press either F9 or F10, the screen brightness does not change. Is there some other setting somewhere that is preventing me from adjusting the screen brightness? Is there a driver that I need to download to activate these keys? Thank you

Re: How to adjust screen brightness?

Have you tried them without the Fn key?

Re: How to adjust screen brightness?

Have you tried the ALT+FN key?  CTRL+FN key?

Re: How to adjust screen brightness?

to adjust screen brightness on a Windows 7 HP Laptop, go to the control panel > Display > select "adjust brightness", when this opens, the brightness slider is at the bottom of the screen. adjust to your comfort level.

 

I did not change the performance seletion while in that screen, I prefer the "High Performance" button.

Re: How to adjust screen brightness?

Hi @buildcash,

 

 

Thank you for your query.

 

 

I grasp that you have an issue with the brightness of your display.

 

You did not include your exact model of HP notebook or your Operating System.

 

Here is a link to   HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a dim display (Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista),

 

 

 

I hope this helps.
