If you find yourself straining to read the text on your Dell laptop screen, it may be the backlight needs to be brighter. Or while you are working in a darkened room, you may want to decrease the brightness of the screen. With these easy steps, you can adjust the brightness of your Dell laptop.
Here are the steps to adjusting the brightness of your Dell laptop screen:
Avoid setting the brightness level too high; it will strain your eyes and you will need to rest it more in between your laptop work. Remember to rest your eyes frequently when working in front of a monitor. You can also reduce battery consumption by working with minimal screen brightness. Your laptop will automatically lower its brightness setting when you remove the plug from the electrical socket, converting the model to battery mode.
I have the Alienware Laptop M17xR3 and found the manual for it and it says to click on the f5 button to decrease the brightness and i have done this but its not working. unless im doing something wrong...when i push f5 and the down arrow it goes thru the sites on the address bar in IE...this has already given me a headache...HELP
Thanks for that Gator6x4.
My old XPS had a much wider range of brightness, I'm not sure why they changed that. I could literally feel my eyes getting smaller before this adjustment.
Changing the brightest with the graphics properties/options work.
