Questions and Answers
How do I adjust brightness and contrast on my ASUS?
Holding Fn and pressing the up and down keys is not working. I have to squint because the computer is so bright.
If the up and down keys don't adjust the brightness on your ASUS laptop, the brightness controls are likely assigned to other keys. Do the following to find your laptop's brightness keys:
- Look at your keyboard.
- Find your Fn key and remember the color. Oftentimes, Fn functions are the same color as the Fn key.
- Look at your keyboard for the icons that look like suns with arrows next to them, or differently sized suns. These are your brightness keys.
- Hold the Fn key and press down to turn the display brightness down.
You have successfully turned your brightness down. However, if you cannot find your brightness keys, you can always use Windows to turn your display brightness down:
- Open Control Panel.
- Click System and Security.
- Click Power Options.
- Move the slider to get your screen to the desired brightness.

How do I manually change computers color temperature?
I somehow managed to change my computer's color temperature last night without knowing how I did it. I was wondering if there is a pretty universal way to do this just with the keyboard, I don't think I opened any menus up for it. My screen was pretty usual average and I somehow hit the right combination to turn it a dull orange color. I have an ASUS ROG laptop.. I have tried: I re-calibrated the color through the menus, which worked but it wasn't the way it was, it seems.. I think it was caused by: I mis-pressed a few keys on my keyboard and it changed the screen's color.
It is likely that you hit the shortcut key for ASUS Splendid Video Enhancement. Search for the program in Windows. You can uninstall it or revert it back to factory settings. This will get the tints correct for the display again.
Hi,, my brightness and volume keys aren't working on my new ASUS laptop?
I just got a new ASUS f555la ab31 laptop with Windows 10. The top row of the keyboard which includes the brightness and volume keys isn't working. When I click on them it does the task which should be done if I was holding shift while pressing the key. How do I fix this? Thanks!
Go to the ASUS website and re install the drivers for display and audio. Then restart your computer and see if the keys work properly. If they still are failing, install the drivers for ATKACPI driver and hotkey-related utilities. They are under the Utility section in the available drive list for download. If all else fails, format your computer or return it if it is under warranty.

My ASUS laptop display irritates my eyes?
I can adjust the brightness on my laptop but the screen display does not look right. Even at no brightness the whites and light colours on my screen hurt my eyes as they are too intense. I normally have to change brightness levels because looking at the same intense white begins to hurts my eyes. I suspect there is something wrong with the contrast or temperature of the colours perhaps? It is a fairly new laptop and I've always had this problem since day 1. I did not think much of it until I started using Photoshop and just couldn't make out the colours on my photos properly.. I have tried: I've tried to change the brightness settings and the contrast but they could only find brightness settings and not contrast settings. I think it was caused by: Perhaps a fault in the unit of the laptop I bought
Install the ATK package from the ASUS website for your specific model. This should help with your brightness control. Go to your Power Management settings and turn off Adaptive Display before you begin to reconfigure your brightness again. There are apps like Dimmer that help with the brightness levels and work with Windows 10.

I updated from Win 8 to 10, and now I can't adjust brightness control?
Buttons for controlling brightness are not working
Update your Display drivers for your specific PC make and model. When you update to a new Windows OS, the OS drivers override your actual ones. Updating them will restore lost functions and you will have better control of your display levels.
ASUS screen Brightness Windows 8.1?
I can't adjust my laptop screen brightness either through my control panel or with Fn F3/F4 shortcut or with changing my PnP (because there isn't other).. Also I have tried installing previous driver from ASUS store and the problem still remains.
Check your Power Saving settings. Then update the drivers for the hotkeys mentioned in an above answer. Turn off Adaptive Display if it is enabled as this will also prevent the use of the keys sometimes.
Monitor brightness doesn't work - ASUS?
I have done all the steps given, now function key is working but F5 and F6 is not working so that I am not able to adjust screen brightness. Can you please help?
Update your keyboard drivers from the ASUS website. Restart your computer after installation and your F5 and F6 should be working again.
Calibration not making any changes?
Hi, The white balance or contrast calibration on my monitor needs to be adjusted. Photos appear darker than they do on a number of different devices. So, I need to lighten the white balance. I went through the calibration a number of times and the adjustment/change occurs for a flash then returns to the way it was before. This is DURING me fiddling with the calibration bar, AND when I 'test it out' and press 'current' vs. 'previous' calibration before finishing up the process.
If you have reinstalled all graphics and display drivers from your PC manufacturer, control your color callibration through Windows:
- 1Go to the Windows Control Panel.
- 2Type in Color Management.
- 3Choose the Advanced Tab.
- 4Select Use Windows Display Calibration.
- 5Now close the panel box.
Fn key plus up or down does not work?
Hi, I just got a laptop today from my cousin and apparently the brightness is too high. I press FN plus the small sun, but the HUD doesn't come out. how do I make it work? I run k43sd
Either use a screen brightness extension app or update the keyboard and display drivers for the laptop. If Windows 10 was recently installed then you will need to update all the drivers directly from the maker of the laptop.
Option came up to change contrast on screen, which I did, now I have a black background. Would like to change it back?
Want to change back to normal background, now it is black
Select your screen brightness keys on your keyboard. These are usually F4 and F5 or F6. You should be able to manually brighten the screen this way. If not, then restart your computer but go into Safe Mode. From there you can adjust brightness in the control panel. Check out VisiHow's article Repair Windows 7 Black Screen of Death for further options.
ASUS Q200E contrast suddenly switched to very high at startup. Please tell me LCD is not bad?
Brightness seems to adjust just fine. Contrast stays very high regardless
Update your drivers. If you still are having an issue then consider using a program like Dimmer which is free and allows you to control the brightness.
ASUS keyboard back-light adjusting?
When I press Fn + F3, F4 the back-light of the keyboard doesn't turn on
Restart the computer. If this does not do the trick then go to the ASUS website and install the ATK package for your PC model. This is what controls the backlight and other features. Updating it usually brings the keyboard backlight up again.
Hi, I wish the best for you, I have a problem with adjusting the setting of Intel video graphic?
It is 2GB GeForce, but I do not know why I have a problem with colors in 720p films?
Check your monitor output mode? Is is set to HDMI? Then try changing the size of the 720p film on the screen. If you have a great graphics card yet the wrong monitor cable connection or setting, the 720 will be distorted in color or quality.
My monitor is too dark, so my output is too light?
I don't know how to manipulate the physical controls on the bottom of my monitor.
Use the buttons on your keyboard. Or, go into the Control Panel and adjust the brightness settings. Some monitors do not come with adjustment buttons. They can also be located on the side or back of the monitor.
When I leave one page to go to another page, the one I left is still visible beneath the other page and so on, is there an adjustment for that?
Pages seem to bleed through and don't go away
This is more a setting to be controlled in the browser that you use. Close down all applications and restart your computer. Then go into your browser and adjust the page view from within the Settings. For instance, you can restore Google Chrome to default rather easily.
