How to change the brightness/contrast in my Dell notebook?

This question has suggested answer(s)

I'm using Dell inspiron 4030 notebook (new) . I tried to reduce the brightness using keys (fn + brightness key) but it does not work. Is there something to do with drivers ?

  • See if you can set the brightness in the Power settings.

    There is no contrast adjustment for LCD screens.

  • New computers do not use the FN key with the brightness key. Try the brightness key alone. You can change this behavior in Windows Mobility Center. The F keys serve double duty--with and without the Function key.
