Laptop light setting turned off, how to turn back on?

I turned the laptop light setting all the way down using power option so I can listen to music without having the light on. Now, I don't know how to turn it back on.

Please help.

Thanks!

Should be some Fn+key combo. Mine is on Up/down arrow keys. Yours may be different. Check the keyboard.

Thanks GokAy, I should've been more specific: I tried the function key & the light+ key on my keyboard, but it did not work. Any alternative way?

Boot to Safe Mode and change the power option back to what it should be.
