no,no,i knew someone would think that,sorry for not being specific last time,but its not the brightness buttons,i hit those and it's not that.I was using it one night and turned it off,when i turned it back on the next day the screen stayed black.What is Fn+F1?is it a way to make your screen stay black?
QUOTE Thanks
