Dark screen on Sager 2096 laptop

mal330mal330 Registered User regular
I just got my new laptop, a Sager 2096 with an Nvidia 9600M GT. Whenever I turn on my laptop, the screen is fine, but as soon as I log on the screen gets much darker. The laptop came with a program called Wow Video/Audio, and I think this is what's causing it. There's even a button linked to this program built into the keyboard. Is this what's causing it, or is it something to do with my battery? How do I stop this? D:

    Probably your power saving options. Does it do this on battery, AC, or both?

    It's been plugged in the whole time. I checked the screen options for power saving in the control panel, but that only blacks out the screen or shuts the system down.

    See if you have a hotkey for brightness on the keyboard, usually Fn + F6. Use that to brighten the screen as much as possible. If it's brand new and doing this, it's under warranty - call tech support.

    Sometimes its Fn + right arrow as well.

    Or even Fn + Up - entirely depends on the config.

    I'd take a look at power saving first and foremost, though.
