I recently got a used HP Pavilion DV6000 running windows 7 Pro. well something is not right with the screens display. I cant tell what the problem is exactly. It just doesn't look right to me. I know the display is dim & needs to be brighter for one. Im a rookie when it comes to computers & have no idea how to adjust the display settings ect. Can someone please help me? Please & thank you!

Hello saraveza408

Try calibrating the display, detailsHere

Also worth checking is the power settings, see Here

There should also be a function key for adjusting the brightness - this is sometimes pressed on it`s own or in unison with the Fn key.

Well I did the 1st 2 things and it looks a little better. Thanks! And for some reason none of my Fn + another key thing doesn't work at all.

Glad to hear that there has been some improvement at least.

I believe that it is meant to be the Fn + the F2 key on many HP notebooks.

Some further suggestions courtesy of HP Here

A least favoured suggestion would be to uninstall the monitor and it`s drivers in the Device Manager and then select the scan for hardware changes, this to see if your HP drivers have been replaced by generic Windows ones.

Thanks Phill, I believe you have helped me a few times throughout the past few years.
