Were's my "brightness" on my laptop (power saver)

  AllZwell 17:22 09 Mar 2007


Having freshly installed Vista home premium on my Toshiba A100 920 to I no longer have the software that came with my laptop. Thus I can't find the battery power saver that came with it. The main one was to "dim" the brightness, but can't seem to find it now. Anyone know were I can find it, or perhaps there are some utilities I can download to set my brightness/CPU settings etc - unless Vista has one, but all I see is "Sleep" settings, and "turn off the display" settings, No CPU, brightness etc.

Make and Model of the laptop would be a good start ?

Check your FN keys first.....

Make and model are in my first post? (Satellite Toshiba A100 920), will check out the FN key, thanks:)

fn+f6 should work

Seeems that the FN keys has no effect now:( but in the manual it is FN+6/FN+7 to increase/decrease the brightness respectably - don't work ATM though!

Your findings should work. As it does with my Medion, try tapping the f6/f7 keys while holding fn
