    Acer Aspire 511 Laptop Screen dimming and beeping

    Have a new Acer Laptop Aspire ES1-511-C59V and the screen keeps dimming then brightening especially when on battery power. Newest thing is when plugged in it will beep and dim every few minutes, what the heck? I tried to adjust it doing this.... it did not help.

    1) type Power Options and select it on the right.2) Then look over to the right on Power Options screen and you should have a power plan selected, probably "Balanced".
    3) Select Change Plan settings.
    4) Down at the bottom of "Edit Plan Settings" select Advanced Power Settings"
    5) Scroll down until you find display and expand it
    6) Find Enable adaptive brightness and expand.
    7) I set mine selection to off for both On Battery and Plugged in.
    8) Apply, Ok

    thanks for any assistance, I am unfamiliar with Windows 8/8.1

    Sounds like there is an issue with your power adapter. If covered by the warranty, send it back.

    Or a bad battery, but yea, send it back if new and under warranty. You shouldn't have to fix it.
