BSOD! Cant Adjust Brightness/Volume or Connect To Internet!

Q: BSOD! Cant Adjust Brightness/Volume or Connect To Internet!

I was on some random website when I got the BSOD error code and automatic restart. I ran all my malware, spyware programs and got rid of everything. So, I restart my computer, and now I can't adjust the brightness. The place where you could do that is just not there. It doesn't let you. Not only that, it's as if I'm in safe mode, because I can't connect to the Internet or adjust the volume, but I'm not in safe mode, because everything's not blown up. Can someone please help me out? I'm losing my mind.

Preferred Solution: BSOD! Cant Adjust Brightness/Volume or Connect To Internet!

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.)

Does anyone have any idea on how to correct a problem I am having with my deaCentre A520? All of the sudden I can no longer use the touch buttons on the bottom of the screen. They light up when touched - HDMI, brightness, volume, etc - but they no longer work. I have been running Windows 10 for sometime now - I doubt it is a software issue with MS. Any idea on how to correct this issue? I can use the touch screen just fine - just not the control buttons on the bottom of the screen. Thanks.

Using the laptop on battery, when I press on F11-12, the brightness meter is shown on the upper left like usual, but it won't move up or down.  Yet I think it's strange that all other places I can adjust brightness are fine, and especially strange that everything is working totally fine on AC power.
I tried uninstalling the Generic PnP monitor and reinstalling, but to no results.  Also, both my power settings on battery and on power indicate no adaptive brightness.

Hello there, I need help please! I can't fix the screen brightness. It appears to be stuck on full brightness which draws my battery life quickly and hurts my eyes during nights. The brightness button in the action center is missing, there is no brightness slide bar in the display setting nor in control panel, and brightness fn buttons in the keyboard are not working as well. When I click on the battery icon, there is a brightness button next to the battery saver button but also not working (not even clickable).I searched online and I tried:- updating/reinstalling/rolling back display drivers- resetting pc (reinstalling windows)- many other little repairs College is starting soon and I really need my battery life and I will be studying on my laptop in late hours so this brightness issue is a big trouble for me

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.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium

Windows 7 pre-installed
CPU: Intel Core i3 380M
Motherboard: Dell Inc. 07FXP8
Graphics: Generic PnP Monitor ([email protected]) on Intel HD Graphics
Dell Inspiron N5040

Beginning today, I opened my laptop from sleep and noticed the display was at its lowest brightness setting. I then tried to restart it to see if that would solve it, no luck. I did some googling and found out it could be a problem with the graphics driver. I then disabled it and enabled it. Now the brightness is at its max settings.

The function (FN) + F4, F5 (the keys to adjust the brightness settings) do nothing. The brightness status will show up on the screen and only change 1 or 2 notches.

I then realized I should have a way to adjust the brightness via the Power Settings in the Control Panel. I even confirmed this with a friend. I should have the sliders to adjust the brightness but I do not. It's very strange.

This is the screenshot from my friend:

So I installed some new Windows updates today (whatever was available via Windows Update). I restarted my computer to enable the updates. When it came back on, my task bar was white for some reason. I solved that problem using the first solution I found here: [SOLVED] Taskbar is white

Well I didn't change my volume before doing that, so I don't know if it worked before I followed that solution. I do know that after following that solution, my volume meter no longer shows up when I change the volume via the keys for it on my keyboard. This is pretty annoying because it was convenient to always see my audio level when I adjusted the volume.

I am on a HP Pavilion dv7-6c95dx with beats audio, running Windows 7 64-bit. When I changed my volume, the beats audio logo with a volume meter under it would pop up, but it no longer shows up. I haven't noticed any change in the quality of my sound, and I can still actually adjust the volume level. The problem is the volume meter no longer displays to show me the volume level.

If anyone has any clue as to why this happened, that would be great!

A:Volume meter no longer displays when I adjust volume level

Try rolling back any keyboard driver updates, or go to the keyboard manufacturers website and download most up to date driver(s) from there.

Hi, Try the following. Download the graphics installer on the following link and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72001-72500/sp72370.exe When complete, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the following link. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp69501-70000/sp69575.exe When the Chipset installation has completed, do not restart as prompted - instead, open your Downloads folder, right click on the graphics installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation. When this has completed, shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Start the notebook and let Windows fully load for a few minutes before checking if the f2/f3 buttons function. Regards, DP-K

A:can not adjust brightness

Hi: If the brightness is stuck on maximum, you probably need to install the graphics driver. The problem is that HP only supports that model for W10. See if this W8.1 graphics driver works... This package provides the AMD High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver and Catalyst Control Center for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. For notebooks with switchable graphics modes, this package includes drivers for both graphics processing units (GPUs). Switchable graphics enable users to switch between a power-saving graphics mode (normally used under battery power) and a high-performance graphics mode. If high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video output is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72501-73000/sp72773.exe

Ok I've had vista for a long time, but I switched over to XP and everything is perfect except from one small detail that is kinda big for me. I can't adjust the brightness in my laptopIn vista all I did was press fn left/right arrows to adjust it. And from what I know this is the way you do it in most laptopsNow in this XP I had to install all drivers. Specifically from this page http://www.laptop-software.com/acer-softwa...5738zg-drivers/when I install the graphics driver, VGA intel driver for vista is the one that's used for my computer from that list, the brightness just goes to the max apparently and I can't use fn arrows to adjust it. I CAN use fn arrows up and down to adjust the volume so there is definitely something fishy here. If I uninstall the driver I can use fn to adjust the brightness normally so I know the problem is when I install the driverthis brightness is driving me crazy! the driver bring something called Intel Graphic Media Accelerator which has an option for brightness, but it seems as if that's a different type of brightness cause it just makes the screen duller. You can actually still see a lot of brightness coming out from the computer but the screen is very dull. And it still damages my eyesany help?

How can I adjust the display brightness in XP? On battery power, the display automatically dims. I want the display to stay at a constant brightness when on battery or on AC power.

When plugged in, my aging laptop's LCD brightens, however it seems as if the power supply cannot handle the increased load, so there is a very annoying flicker; it gets dim, then bright, over and over. Could this be an inverter problem or the backlight or the power supply, or any combination. This is an HP, for anyone has any experience with HP laptops.

My problem: the display of my monitor is way too dark, even at maximum brightness.
I have an ATI Radeon 9200 SE video card, my OS is Windows XP with SP1. In the video card's control panel I can adjust brightness, but it doesn't work. At some point it did, but since I installed the new Catalyst 4.9 Beta drivers (to boost Doom³ performance), I'm off to where I started: if I start any game; brightness settings get resetted. Most games don't allow me to get it bright enough, some to an extent I can't play them at all!
Now I said it once worked, what leads me to believe I must have done something wrong. I don't think the beta drivers are the cause, since I've had the same problem before, and probably nothing was changed in that area. I already tried to install them again, using Driver Cleaner. I followed it's steps, only forgot the "empty recycle bin" part, but that doesn't sound crucial to me. Then I installed the drivers again, but the problem remains.
Also, overlays for video never worked. But I can easily adjust brightness to acceptable levels with media player, so that's not much of a problem.

Can you give some advice on what may cause this, and what to try? Maybe there are there other programs that adjust brightness for all aplications? Any help is welcome.

Hello, I have an old Dell Vostro 1000 that I bought for 150$. For some reason I can't adjust the brightness (it's at a constant maximum), I have tried everything, Windows Power Manager, the hotkeys obviously, and Quickset (currently uninstalled). I have factory restored it multiple times, updated my video card driver along with updating my computer with Windows Update, but nothing is working. I am suspecting a missing/corrupt driver or maybe an issue with the bios, but I can't figure out which one. And yes, I have called Dell, but the grouchy lady I was talking to said my warranty expired and hung up on me. There have been similar problems on Ubuntu, except that my Windows Vista is so different from Ubuntu that the solution on that forum could not apply to my OS. There was one more option that I haven't attempted however, which was installing Windows 7, but after some thought I realized that it wasn't going to change a thing. Is there anyone that can help me, anything will do: whether it's a temporary fix or a new operating system, it doesn't matter. The screen is so bright that it is getting to the point where it's hurting my eyes.

(I have also uploaded a useful but complicated guide that I found on adjusting brightness in case anyone out there can squeeze some information out of it to help me with this problem.)

A:another question: adjust brightness

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
Adjusting the brightness on a Dell Latitude E6400 can be done with just a few strokes of the keyboard. Most laptops make this a quick task. Pressing and holding the function key (abbreviated as ?Fn?) and pressing the up, or down arrow keys increases and decreases the brightness. You can also press Fn and F1 and F2 or F7 and F8 to increase and decrease the brightness. Immediate results should be seen on the screen making your screen darker or brighter.
You can also change the brightness settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button on the front of the monitor.
You can make the display on my Dell Latitude E6400 brighter to reduce battery life.
Press the Start button, click Control Panel, press System and Security, and then select Power Options.
Drag the slider next to Screen brightness at the bottom of the screen. The brightness changes automatically.
Kindly let us know if this works and also private message the service tag and email address.
Thanks
Robin
