    How to adjust the lcd brightness?

    Hello,
    Some Vista systems show in the power options on the left side a slider
    labeled "Adjust the LCD Brightness". But some other systems not.
    Does anybody know the reason why some systems show and others don't?

    thanks

    This is a function of the driver, not Vista.

    The standard way to adjust brightness on a stand alone monitor, use the
    control buttons on the front of the monitor.

    On a laptop, use the function keys. These keys are usually blue colored and
    are enabled by holding down the FN key and pressing the buttons for
    brightness.
