Screen Brightness

Q: Screen Brightness

Hey,

I have just gone from Win XP SP3 to Windows 7. Two nights ago is when I installed windows 7 everything was fine then after restarting my netbook my screen brightness went down so I went to download the utility tool for my Display Manager. Other hotkeys work perfect just not my brightness.

When my netbook starts up I can change the brightness up from one bar to two bars (20%) but no more. I have even reinstalled the tools again but nothing works for my brightness and there is nothing on the power options for the brightness.

Here is the link to my netbook - Please help me as I need my screen brighter

Hi
     I have Dell Inspiron13 7000 series laptop.Everything was working fine until 2 weeks back.
Suddenly I wasn't able to use F11/F12 keys to controll brightness.Even if I clicked I wasn't getting the actual brightness bar.I checked some blogs and youtube videos, which helped me and it fixed my issue.
Suddenly after almost a week or so, I am getting another issue.I can scroll up or down the brightness however it doesn't change any brightness level.Right now it is too bright but I can't change it.
Has anyone been facing this issue or resolved this?
Laptop was in perfectly operating condition before.I have been getting these issues recently after regular windows update.

My screen brightness using FN+F11/F12 and also in the advanced power settings slider won't adjust the screen to anything other than brightness and minimum or brightness to 100% when I move the slider.  It shows the percentage moving up and down, but the screen stays 100% until I'm on the lowest setting,  then it goes right to minimum.  I received a bunch of Lenovo updates on the first Wednesday of this month and I've had several issues since then, I tried reverting back to previous drivers, but it made no difference, so I'm back on the latest drivers.

Hello,

My laptop: Dell Latitude E5550 - 15.6" FHD - Core i5 5300U - Intel HD Graphics 5500 - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit - 8 GB RAM - 500 GB HDD.

Does anybody know what drivers/software is responsible for displaying On Screen Volume and Screen Brightness Indicator (while pressing Fn+F2,F3,...) ?

What I've found so far that the Dell QuickSet may does the work (link to this solution: No Level Indicator When Using Keyboard Audio Volume Controls), but I couldn't find a compatible version of this soft with Dell Latitude E5550.

I've noticed this happen twice. All of a sudden the screen flickered for just a second and the colors on the screen got brighter. By brighter I mean the the actual color changed (ex. my blue taskbar looked grayish). Both times my laptop was plugged in and the second time it happened I simply unplugged the computer and it changed back. After plugging the adapter back in the screen went to plugged in settings, but did not change the colors. The two times were separated by about two weeks.

I'm curious what might be causing this. It's probably just some little bug with a driver but I wanted to know what you guys thought.

Try uninstalling the monitor driver, re-booting, and letting it re-load the driver when it loads.

Hi: Did you install the graphics driver?  That would be the only suggestion I can offer. This package provides the driver that enables the Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. If high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video output is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp75501-76000/sp75508.exe Check to ensure you see the Intel graphics adapter listed in the device manager under the display adapters device manager category. If you see a Standard VGA Adapter, that means the graphics driver did not install.

Hey guys

I have a very small problem here. I had a recent format to my laptop. Assume now that I am working on the battery. Whenever I plug in the AC, screen brightness increases perfectly. No problem here. Now imagine, I put the laptop to sleep or hibernate and I plug in the AC. Whenever the laptop comes from sleep or hibernate, screen brightness stays dimmed. I need to adjust it manually every time.

Did any of you experienced something similar to this one? I checked other posts but most of them are related with not being able to change the brightness manually. Nothing like my problem.

I appreciate any suggestion

I have a Lenovo y560 and the screen brightness juss keeps changing on its own, i try to set it to a brighter settingand it justs lowers itself back down within seconds, the laptop is also running windows 7 64 bit if that could be a cause.
 

A:Screen brightness changes on its own?

Your computer's got an ambient light sensor to detect and automatically adjust screen brightness based on surrounding lighting. You'll have to disable the setting. Lenovo has their own energy management program that has a setting for it, but I'd imagine there's something in the Control Panel (maybe Power Options?) that allows you to turn the setting off.

Hi, I too have a Samsung Monitor (T220) which possibly - like yours - does NOT have the necessary software to link with the 'auto adjust brightness' system within the Charms Menu. You should however be able to adjust brightness (and anything else) via the controls which will I expect be built into the side (or along the base) of your screen.If you haven't already got a copy of your manual you can download a PDF from Samsung which will show how to make the adjustments you require.

hello,

my name is DarkWazaman. I just recently (like yesterday) noticed that i cant adjust my screen brightness with the shortcut keys (f2 and f3) and in the power options.

when i have my laptop plugged in the brightness is at full, when i have it unplugged, using the battery, its lower than half so it can last longer.

right now is unplugged and the brightness is at max, when i touch the brightness keys it show its all the way down but i cant raise or lower it and the brightness stays the same .

dont know if keeping it connected to my lg tv via hdmi for a month maybe changed some settings or something. also i connected and usb receiver for wireless keyboard and mouse.

i had no problems during this time, when i was connected to my lg led tv. even playing for hours some video games like godfather 2, evil dead regeneration. but just this days i noticed it went total shutdown after a while of playing resident evil 5, guess it made it overheat alot and it shut down or hibernate or sleep. so what i did was i put a big fan at max towards my laptop so it wouldnt overheat and it worked but i decided to disconnect it from the tv and use it normally.

but thats when i noticed this problem.

I like my Toshiba Portege M300 because of compact size, etc. Recently I needed a new hard disk and my repairer loaded W7. I used XP previously and Toshiba do not recommend W7 for this notebook due to age. However, all is working well apart from the screen brightness adjustment. This was previously done by the Fn+F6/F7 hotkeys and there was a driver for this.

In W7 Screen Resolution there is supposed to be a brightness slider but this is not present on my W7 system (I gather that this not an uncommon feature)

How can I adjust the setting sin my notebook to fix a brightness as I am resigned to the fact that the old brightness adjustment will not apply now that I am using W7? Is there a change in the Bios that might help?

A:Screen Resolution Brightness.

I didn't think that the brightness settings of Fn+F6/F7 were affected by the OS but I've been wrong about stuff like that before

In the BIOS, there should be some kind of power or battery settings section that may have some LCD brightness settings that you can try tweaking.

Hey, Guys.

I just yesterday finished my new computer (16Gb RAM, i5-4470k, GTX 770, Win 8.1, etc.) and I just today realized that I cannot change the screen brightness. The button is grayed out and says "Unavailable" which I know cannot be possible.

Now, i have done my research and people say that the fix is to update your drivers through the Device Manager, and I have tried that to no avail. I have tried all possible combinations of "Display Adapters" and "Monitors" drivers. None work. I have been restarting my computer after every change and I have no idea what there is left to do.

One thing that I might add is that a lot of people remedy this problem by reverting their Intel Integrated drives back to an older version, but I do not have an option to change it's drivers. It shows up nowhere in the Device manager.

My eyes are burning as I am typing this and I would even go for a third-party brightness program (if that even exists).

Thanks in Advance,

Is there a way I can increase the brightness of my screen? (well more my friends since its his screen I am trying to fix)
I have already put the contrast on the screen itself to the max and its still very dark, i was wondering if there was like an option in control panel or something. Ive tried looking around a bit but ive had no luck, any help would be greatly appreciated.
