Hello. I have an Intel® mini-laptop (MG101A3) with Windows XP, I used to adjust the screen brightness with Fn+F8/F7; lowering it when using the battery and increasing it when connected to AC. Now the keyboard is broken and the brightness is low, I can't find a way to adjust the brightness like I used to. I found a tutorial that suggests to adjust the brightness via Intel® graphics app (Adjusting the gamma and contrast) I did it and I don't like how it looks. Some guy suggested me to install Windows 7, I know that would work since W7 can do that easily, but I don't feel like installing it. I'm actually using the mini-laptop with a standard USB keyboard which doesn't have the Fn keys. The question is: Where can I get a on-screen keyboard that includes the Fn keys? Or at least, some free lightweight app to adjust the brightness.

We understand that computer issues can be stressful but please do not start more than one thread looking for help with the same issue, this not only wastes helpers time but can also lead to confusion as to who`s and what guidance you are following which in turn can lead to mishaps and potentially irreparable damage to your computer.
Continue at your first thread here and someone will be with you asap, thank you for understanding.
