i have a gateway laptop.. i recently just restarted my Operating System. after i ave done that, i cant use the button to adjust the brightness. i would hold down "FN" and the usual brightness button, nothing happens. but when i use the "FN" button for the volume button, it works.

What i'm asking is, is there another way to adjust the brightness in the system besides using the Function Button, or is there a way of fixing this? I'm tired of this dark screen. :huh:

Have you re-installed the drivers for your keyboard that are available from the Gateway download site?

Go to http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/dlcenter.asp
and enter your serial number. That will take you to a page where the drivers are located. You'll need the special software for your laptop keyboard (may/may not be included with the driver).

Post back with the exact model number of your system and we may be able to locate it for you.
