When I use my Tecra 8200 laptop with (the brand new) battery, the light goes down on the screen making it almost impossible to work with. I use windows XP. I havn´t found any settings to adjust this - anybody knows what to do?

Thankful for help!

Hi there,

I mean thats normal, you have a notebook which has some powersaving features. Just a question besides: had it the same behaviour before you exchanged the battery?? Or did you recently installed some new drivers/tools/software??

Otherwise I would suggest you to go to the Toshiba Drivers Download site and download the latest powersaver for your machine to adjust the screen brightness.

Just give it a try if not already did and it should work.

Cheers

Hello and thank you!
It seems like a likely solution - only I can´t find the power save driver for Tecra 8200. On Toshibas support download I can not find any option for Tecra 8200. Is there anybody around who has this driver?

Hi

On the Toshiba European driver page you will find the Toshiba Power Saver for the Windows XP… at this time it’s a 4.05.00 version

You will find it in Archive -> Tecra -> Tecra 8xxx -> Tecra 8200 -> PT820E -> Power Saver
