Brighten ALL Monitor Displays

Being very angry with my response times I pushed many different keyboard keys. My screen display dimmed considerably. How do I re:brighten? Lap Top, Windows 7, HP Pavilion g series.

Hold the FN key and one of the F keys to toggle brightness up and down. On my Toshiba laptop, it's the F6 and F7 keys. May be different for Hewlitt Packards. If you look at the F keys (top row), 2 will have a little 'sun' picture. Those are the ones you want.
