unable to adjust screen brighness Home Ultimate

Hello i just got a call from my sister, a friend of hers has a laptop that has been brought down to her place. It seems that they have a Dell Latitude D260 laptop and they are running Vista Home ultimate 32 bit. The simple problem is that they are unable to adjust the screen brightness. I have a dell laptop running vista home premium, so i told her to go to control panel-power options......but there seems to be no adjust the display brightness option, so theres no way for her to adjust the display settings....any suggestions please???? Once again the laptop in question is windows vista ultimate

It's usually the Blue function key, plus a key with a blue brightness symbol (often a sun).

Blue function key - Fn on it normally.

Had this problem come up last month on a Samsung.

Neither Control Panel or the keyboard worked.

Having tried everything else had to download updated mobo/graphics drivers from Samsung.
