Windows 7: How to dim my screen?

How to dim my screen?

Hello, my net book has an insanely bright screen, and using the function buttons to dim/brighten the screen is close to pointless, because it's range from bright to low is barely noticeable. It gives me a headache.

So, how (if possible) can I dim the screen from windows 7? Something from the control panel?

Note: My netbook has windows 7 starter, not windows 7 home.

start typing power into your start-menu searchbox, then choose power options from the search results.

there should be a screen brightness button on the bottom. it doesn't go very far down though for me and my netbook.

*edit* oops - sorry, i think this is exactly what the keyboard brightness control alters...

maybe there is a setting in your bios?

you'll probably be glad of this brightness if you use your netbook outdoors on a sunny day, but that doesn't help your problem though.

Windows screen flashes, random grey screen & random black screen
This is driving me crazy. Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly. Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else. Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot. If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.
