    Information needed: Make and Model of computer / motherboard / video card / monitor / etc.
    Cannot help if no information is available about what you are using. What Operating System are you using?

    Is it visible enough for you to upgrade to the latest BIOS? Is it Dim for everything you try to do with it (entering BIOS setup) or just in Windows 7? I see that ASUS released a BIOS update for your motherboard on 2014/12/19. I would start with that.

    I notice that the problem is not the monitor because when the monitor opens the acer logo is at its normal brightness when starts at the bios its too dim and is it possible for a gpu socket to be the only broken thing in my motherboard? because I borrow a dedicated graphics card to my friend and it works wonders returns to normal......sad to say I dont know how to update a bios I know how to use it but a update is a no no if possible can you teach me how thanks in advance

    Watch these videos and it explains how to update your BIOS (two different ways). This is straight from the Asus Website:
    MB EZUpdate
    MB EZFlash 2
