    Hi - this is normally done on the monitor. All monitors put this in a different place, but there should be some "menu" buttons somewhere on the monitor. Either within the menu or maybe a button of its own, there should be a way to control the brightness and contrast.

    Hope that helps.

    I have a Toshiba laptop with XP on it. Not sure whether the laptop you have will have the same things as mine, but I'll tell you how I can change the brightness on mine and hopefully you can figure out a similar thing on your own.

    If I go into Control Panel - I have an icon called Intel Extreme Graphics. Within that there is a tab call colour. I have the option to change the brightness and contrast within that.

    Just hoping you have Intel Extreme Graphics, otherwise I'm not sure I can be of much more help.

    What's the make and model of your laptop? The manufacturer's site will usually have a pdf copy of the manual, plus a searchable help forum.
    Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it very often.

    There's usually an "fn" key that's one color other than white (mine is blue) and if you look at your keyboard you'll see that some of the key's have symbols or numbers on them in that same color (again, blue in my case), just look for the ones that signal brightness up and brightness down. Suns and arrows on my page up and page down keys are the ones I use on my laptop. It's different for all laptops.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    Yeah just press on the FN button and up and down with your arrows to adjust your screen brightness. Or at least thats how it works on mine, I was under the impression it was the same for other laptops.
