Catie was messing with my computer and made the screen really dark. I can barely read anything! Does anyone know how to fix it? I have an old Dell desktop computer. On the front it says " Exit, then a sun shape, a moon shape, and menu". When i click on the menu Brightness comes up as 0. I can't figure out how to make it more bright. If i click on any of the right or left arrows on the monitor it just moves to the next catagory.

look for the FN key (it will be blue and on your left) and on the arrow keys there's a sun (arrow pointing up and down should be on your right )that are blue, hold the FN key and adjust the brightness by pushing the arrow keys (up and down)

I adjust the brightness on my Dell laptop when I'm using the battery..

thanks I don't know what i did but i fixed it. I have no blue FN key. I had to hold the moon symbol, sun symbol, and menu all together to even get the brightness to increase. What a pain! Thanks for the help.
