Laptops/screen brightness

I too have a DELL Inspiron E1705 and have tried to figure out the monitor brightness no avail.  The Fn and the up arrow does nothing, and there is no 'Brightness' or anything relating to the Monitor or Display settings under Power Options. Those only give you, as you said, the sleep/hibernate, etc.. modes - but nothing on brightness.

Any other suggestions would be Fab!  thank you! :)

I am a computer science major and my dad is an Electric Engineering, so my life has revolved around computers. For as long as I can remember, I have been buying and selling computers. I tend to travel a lot, so I have always had a laptop. I have bought 5 of them for myself, and bought around 30-40 for friends and family. I have dealt with the good and the bad of various version and brand names. If you are in need of buying a laptop, feel free to contact me and I'm sure I will be able to guide you into purchasing the laptop that will be the best fit for you. I will custom build you computers for you to choose from so you can get an exact idea of what to go and buy when you do it yourself and so that you have an exact price. However, I am in the USA and am only knowledgeable about computers here in the US. I do not know about foreign currency or the quality of computer brand names outside the US.
