Default My computer screens on indicator blue LED is way too bright!

How do I dim it down to only a "indicator" amount of light level?

can I color over it with a sharpie or something?

or would it be better to put a resistor in series?

its waaaaaaaaaay too bright. like blindingly bright

Acer LED 1080p 60hz display (the display brightness is fine. i'm talking about the power-on indicator LED)

Replace with a non bright opaque led or go the resistor way.

I put red tape over bright white power LED on new Virgin Modem.
When service guy came to investigate a fault it confused him though only for a moment.

This is where Gaffer tape comes into its own.

A bit of good old black gaffer tape would extinguish the offending LED for sure.
