Problems Dimming Display Brightness Level on Dell Inspiron One 2305 Touch

Jump to solution

Hi. I hope someone can help me.  I  am having issues dimming the display of  a Dell Inspirion 2350 Touch desktop.  It's a little too bright for me. I thought I would find the dimmer / brightness either on the keyboard or on the left-side of my monitor.  I looked at the manual and I am unable to dim the display and the instructions are very confusing to me.  Can someone please advise me how to dim the display?  I have Windows 7 if that  makes a difference.

Thank you.

On the left side or your screen are two buttons with a little symbol that looks like a sun the upper button raised the brightness and the lower one decreases it .

to get your manual click on the Setup guide either view or download. Then go to pages 26 and 27 for the instructions on the settings.

Unfortunately, there are no dim/bright buttons on the left-side of the screen, nor anywhere else.  It's really odd because I bought a similar computer for my sister and the buttons are there, but for my computer, there are no buttons and no easy way to dim the brightness level. I've read the "help"menu and nothing works.  I wonder if I bought a "lemon"?  Has anyone else had this issue?  Should I contact customer service for a return?

I have exactly the same problem. The manual says the dimmer buttons on the side are "Optional"... but I can find no software setting to change the brightness...

Right Click on the Desktop.

Select top Option: "Catalyst(TM) Control Centre"

Select "Advanced" Button and then Next.

Graphics Pull Down Menu in Top Left Corner, Select "Desktop Properties"

Select "Colour" Tab...

And there they be! Brightness and Contrast settings...

The new system firmware 05 available now to download, contains a fix for it.

You don't need to access the video card software anymore, you can just go in power options and the window will have a brightness slider control  down the bottom.

This works for some Inspiron Ones that don't have the brightness adjustment buttons on the left side of the bezel.

I had the same issue,  I went to "Control Panel"  Then "Power Options"  .  I was able to adjust the brightness here. 

 

Good Luck
