ds has messed about with computer and changed the screen to realy dark. Has happened once before and easily fixed with a function key and something else but have forgotten how and am googling with little effect blush

Any ideas? TIA

I have an Acer. Have you looked at Control Panel? What about system restore? That might work.

oh thank you and I am trying Sue but nothing is working. Am sure last time I just had to hold own one key (don't ask which oneblush) and press one of the funtion buttons. Am getting cross now angry

You've probably just pressed Fn + Num Lock - do it again to sort out the keyboard

thanks Rusty - I had done just that but it took me 30 mins to sort it out blush. Am embarrassingly hopeless with technology. Screen back to normal - I think it might have been to do with the battery as ds had unplugged it and it was out of charge.

Thank to you and Sue for the help anyway smile

D'oh, I should have thought of that as my screen goes dark when its on battery - talk about missing the obvious!! grin
