I recently acquired a portege 3480 with xp installed.
I have searched high and low and can not find a method
for changing the display brightness. Anyone Anyone? Bueler?

Hello,

did you already tried the fn-key combination? I am not sure how it is with your portege but it should be like FN-F6 and FN-F7 for changing the display brightness.
Unfortunately there are no XP-drivers (or just the sound driver) for that machine to change it manually.
You should try the FN-Key combination, there should be a sign which looks like a little "sun" with an up/down arrow in front of.

Hi,

the FN-F6 and FN+F7 key kombination is correct but it doesn't work until you have installed the common modules.
As mentioned there are no common modules to download for the Portege 3480.
Because the 3480 has a Toshiba bios you have good chances to get the common modules of Portege 4000 work.
