Windows 7: Up key not working, Brightness stuck on low settings (FN+UP)

05 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Up key not working, Brightness stuck on low settings (FN+UP)

I have a dell latitude d620 and one day the up and left keys magically stopped working.. later on I had the brightest idea to see whats the lowest level of brightness possible, now I'm pretty much screwed because I cannot get the brightness back up to normal (which is a pain in the rear end) using the FN+UP combination.

I've searched the web trying to find a solution and cannot find anything, any solutions?

Help is very appreciated

Welcome to Seven Forums Nurein615. I think you can adjust it in BIOS with the down right keys (I hope they work!). Here is a (poorly made :)) video that will illustrate how. Basically, F2 at boot, then video settings, then brightness. Don't go too bright as you have no left key to turn it back down! Good luck!
