The keyboard on my Macbook (running OS 10.7.5) is defective. My workaround (for the time being) is to use a soft rollup external keyboard (kindly lent by a friend).

My screen brightness is lower than 50%, and I would like to turn it up to maximum. When I hit F2 using the (defective) keyboard on the Macbook itself, the brightness indicator briefly flashes on screen, but does not go up.
If I hit F2 on the external keyboard, it does nothing.Is there some other way to turn UP the brightness of the screen? I am having great difficulty reading, so I apologise for any tyos...

respectfully, and TIA...

Posted a few minutes later. Never mind, I found a way in the screen settings in System Preferences. NOTE to moderor, kindly delete this post. Thank you.

Is there a possibility that the fn key needs to be used as well, and maybe a "PRAM" reset as it holds the brightness setting, but it sounds doubtful.
