Until recently I used a battery life program that monitered my current battery power and allowed me to change my performance settings, including my screen brightness. I do not know the exact name of the program, just that it was present when I first purchased my computer.

Recently I ran Hitman Pro and haven't been able to locate this program since. Unfortunatly I had the screen brightness set to 0% before I lost it and now have no way to fix it.

If you either know how to find the battery program, or how to fix the brightness please tell me.

A big help would be to tell us your make and model of computer as well as your OS. That will give us more information to go on in narrowing down possibilities or alternatives.

I'm using an Acer Extensa 4220. It was originally a Vista but they included a CD to make it an XP.

Take a look at the Support list of downloads here: Download Center ( ALL Products )

Fill in all the information and it will display a page that at the bottom you'll see 5 tab's identified as: Applications, BIOS, Document, Driver and Patch. I would take a look at the applications tab and see if you can find it there. Beyond that if you don't see it send an email asking them what it is and ask.
