I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Well I've had my laptop for almost 5 months now, however I did break it and got a screen replacement yesterday. Ever since then my screen seems dim. I've altered all the settings (as explained on other threads) but I still can't get to the centre of the problem. I had no trouble altering my brightness before my screen replacement so I do presume that the screen that the shop fitted wasn't the correct one and therefore a cheap option.

In the spring of this year, I sent my laptop in to HP for repair as the screen was black on startup.  I was specifically told not to send the power cord.  I reinstalled all my programs when it returned. The problem persisted and it was recommended to do a system restore.  This did not help, so I contacted HP again with the same problem.  Only now I know that if you set the screen brightness to minimum on battery, it will remain bright when you plug in the power cord. A tech at HP gave me the solution.  Disable and then Enable the Display Adapter.  Wonderful.  It works. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS I HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS PROCESS EVERY SINGLE TIME I POWER UP!   I have to power up on battery only, Go through the process AND THEN plug in the power cord to keep the screen lit. ANY SUGGESTIONS? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi, I have been having an issue recently with newer games. The games I play now are starting to override my gpu screen brightness settings and reverting them back to original brightness.

Basically I have my screen brightness set lower than normal through my gpu control panel. When I play some of these newer games now they override my gpu settings and revert them back to normal, even after the game is exited. I have to then go back into my gpu cotrol panel and set it back to what I had it originally.

This has happened with 2 different graphics cards, Nvidia and AMD both using their gpu display settings panel. Which would be Nvidia Control Panel, and AMD Cataclysm/Crimson Control Panels. Also with different drivers. The games I've had issues with are Fallout 4, Warhammer Vermintide, and now Ghost in the Shell Online. So I don't know if its an issue just for me or if that's just how games are being made now to use their brightness settings to override mine. Any thoughts?

Hi. I can't figure out how to disable auto brightness feature on my laptop. It's dell xps 15 with 1080p display. It happens on battery only, on every power plan. I don't mean the display dimming after a certain time, but it just goes from bright to dark. The darker the image, the darker the screen dimms and vice versa. I had another problem which was the colors going crazy when the sceen went back on after unplugging charger or waking it on battery (it all went down to what was like 256 color range). This problem was resolved after unchecking "Intel Display Power Saving Technology" in Dell Quick Set. Yet I can't get rid of the auto screen dimming which is extremely annoying. Has the laptop got an ambient light sensor or something? Please advise.
PS. I all seems like there's an ambient light sensor which is trigggered by the brightness of the screen itself and it shouldn't work like that.

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,

So I've tried new themes, both Windows and also Firefox add-ons. But then I find photographic images from news sites such as Yahoo disappear - not all of them, but some. Is there any way of preventing this?

Thanks for any help.

A:Screen brightness/Themes

Windows default themes are the best

Just change the wall paper

I'm not sure if this is in the right forum. But in the last couple months, once in a blue moon I couldn't change my screen brightness, and now in the last couple days it's gotten a whole lot worse. Usually, I can't change brightness either via my 'fn -/+' hotkeys or via the actual brightness slider in the power panel. A full reboot or simple hibernation then reboot both let me change brightness again. But the last couple days, restarting the computer just puts the brightness on either fully dimmed or fully bright, and I still can't change it.

This is an HP G60 laptop, and I've had windows seven for a year on it. Like I said above it only started a couple months ago then got worse this week, and what I've found on google so far was all for newly-updated-to-seven issues. My drivers all seem to be up to date according to the windows update driver function... Can anyone help me?

A:Can't adjust screen brightness??

since a reboot fixes it (at least temp.) it is probably not hardware but software. Do you have a backup from before the problem started getting worse?

Do you have the win 7 dvd to do a repair install?
