I have broken keyboard on my MSI EX-600 so I can't press "function buttons" to change brightness, volume, etc. Is it possible to change brightness of display (not graphic card!) without the keyboard in Windows XP? This is my nb: http://www.msi.com/product/nb/EX600.html

broken means you are not able to use any of the keys or just some of the keys? –  Renju Chandran chingath Feb 17 at 13:11

This small executable once used will instantly dim the screen. You can find it in the system tray to further configure it to be more or less dim. I found this after Googling because my function keys were not working on my laptop and there was no other way to reduce brightness in windows XP. I thought there had to be an external program made by a 3rd party.

This does not answer the question. The asker wants to set the backlight brightness, not dim the screen. –  nitro2k01 Feb 11 at 19:42
