How to increase screen brightness in Windows 7

  jaymymac 10:17 24 Jan 14

Hi. My Mum has a Samsung NC10 netbook running WinXP. Didn't want to use it after April so I have just done a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. Everything went well, all updates for Windows installed etc. Running smooth and stable except the display is very dim and I can't seem to find any settings to increase screen brightness. The function keys for brightness or anything else no longer work but I guess they were part of Samsungs Windows installation? Any ideas how to increase the brightness of the screen? Thanks in advance.

Providing that Windows recognises the netbook as mobile device then this may work:

Go to Control Panel -> "Windows Mobility Center" - you may need to select "Large Icons" in the "View by" options top-right to see it. If it's there then try dragging the "Display Brightness" slider over to the right.
