Brightness not adjustable on ThinkPad T450 after changing screen (to LGD03FF)

Q: Brightness not adjustable on ThinkPad T450 after changing screen (to LGD03FF)

I just changed my ThinkPad T450 laptop screen to a full-HD IPS display. The new panel (display) shows up in the Device Manager with Hardware ID MONITOR\LGD03FF. While the screen works, I can no longer adjust the brightness in Windows 10 - it's always on full brightness and the brightness key combinations no longer work (nor do any of the Windows 10 software brightness controls). The brightness adjustment keys work perfectly in Linux (Ubuntu 16.04), and they work if I go in to the BIOS. The monitor is showing up in the Device Manager as "Generic PnP Monitor". Any idea how to get brightness working in Windows 10 with the LGD03FF panel?

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.)

unless you have a panel with an fru number corresponding to t450, the eeid (configuration chip on the panel) won't have the correct info to allow brightness control.

The screen brightness adjustment used to work fine until I recently updated my T410 from windows 10 32 bit to 64 bit with a new install iso of the latest Win 10 version 1803. I read through and tried all the solutions offered in this forum, not one seems to work for me:Un-- &   reinstalled display adapter and generic PnP monitor, updated drivers etc.All the sound and screen "sliders" (for lack of a better word) are working, same also in power options , I can set night light on/off etc.  The screen is contstantly at full brightness and is not adjustable (so far anyway) -->Except in safe mode. In safe mode it works just fineHas anyone got a solution??  Please..

Sorry if this has been asked before, I looked around as best as I could with the search features, googling, etc. The thinkpad powers on just fine, boots into windows, there is no backlighting at all. Had to use a flashlight to navigate. The red dot on the back of the screen for the i on thinkpad does light up though. Is the screen bad, or is the cable loose? Should I try the motherboard side first or the display?Thanks!

It is impossible to say.  The screen could be bad.  The motherboard could have a problem - most likely a fuse.  The Hall sensor that switches when the lid hasclosed could have failed.  sorry.

Hi everyone! I'm running Windows 10 on my Aspire 5740 and the video drivers seem to be working perfectly. The only issue is that brightness is not adjustable. How can I fix it? I know that apparently the Aspire 5740 is driver-supported until Windows 7 so I wanted to know if there's some way to fix this issue or if I have to rollback to Windows 7 to be able to adjust the brightness. Thanks!

A:Brightness not adjustable in Windows 10 with Aspir...

I had the same issue with my Acer Aspire 5740G. How I fixed it. Solution 1. Change the brightness of your screen (even though you'll see no difference when changing) then turn your screen off and on again with the key Fn+F6. Your brightness will change upon restart! It isn't very convenient but it's better than burning your eyes and it works with the right drivers. Solution 2. If you do not like the first solution then you can change your video driver to standard microsoft driver. This can be done in your device manager. There is no need to use Fn+F6 as it should work right away but you might loose your video performance. Hope that helps!

Hello everyone! I own a Toshiba Satellite S955-S5373 with Windows 8.1 installed. For a long while now, I have been unable to adjust the brightness on the laptop, it's stuck at maximum.
 
Summary of the issue:
Display brightness is stuck at maximum.
All the function keys work, except for those that control the brightness.
The slider that is supposed to pop up when the brightness controls are hit does not appear.
Changing the brightness using Power settings/other manual options does not work as well. 
What I've tried so far:
Installed the latest Display driver that Toshiba offers for my model.
Attempted to install the latest Toshiba Eco Utility Driver.
Note: I have a hunch the issue is linked to the Eco utility. The Eco utility can't be opened, repaired, or uninstalled (at least not via the Toshiba update I downloaded above). When the computer tries to engage the Eco Utility, a pop up appears saying something about how the "ordinal 8 cannot be located" in reference to "teco.exe". When I try to run the Toshiba Eco Utility update from Toshiba, selecting either the "Repair" or "Uninstall" options, the installer is unable to complete the operation as well.

Rolling back to a previously used Display Adapter driver.
At this point, I'm pretty lost as to what can be done, short of a factory reset, which I don't particularly want to do. Any ideas folks? Thanks in advance!

It was not punched or something like that, it was on my desk the whole time.I tried to run JScreenFix.com on this place and also to massage it with a soft cloth but it seems that it just gets worse.The problem I have is that I am now in Serbia, and I have this international warranty, but only in one city in Serbia which is on the other part of the country.Also, I saw that there are service providers in my city, but I am not sure if they can fix me this as regular service with warranty.Do you maybe know how this functiones?

I started using a brand new AC adapter directly from Lenovo after my old one stopped working. At first everything was normal. After restarting my computer a few hours later, the brightness is set and cannot be adjusted with the keyboard, slider or within settings. The autobrigtness is not turned on nor is power saver. It was dim and at night after being in sleep it was bright but at neither time could I change or control the brightness. Today upon restarting it is still in a dimmer mode and I cannot make the brightness increase. I did not update anything else software or hardware and everything else is original to the laptop (no replacement parts).I have checked to make sure Adaptive Brightness is turned off in Display Settings and also made sure the Auto-Brightness is turned off. The brightness is at 100% on the slider and settings but the screen remains dimmed.Thank you!

I have tried every "solution" I found online - From enabling/disabling adaptive brightness, to updating my drivers, to actually changing in-game gamma options- nothing worked. I have a windows 10 laptop, and recently, every time I try to play my game (World Of Warcraft), the screen brightness goes crazy increasing and decreasing every second. As soon as I close the game, the issue disappears. However, when I have the game running, even if I minimize it and for eg browse the internet, it keeps happening.

Extremely frustrating, anyone had this problem before and has new ideas on how to fix it?

Hi guys, mine is a very unusual predicament, I just bought a new Dell N311z

I've noticed that when the brightness of my screen is anywhere between maximum and minimum it automatically decreases or increases on will, without me doing anything.

I've also noticed that when the background on the LCD is of a darker colour the brightness decreases and when it's a lighter background the brightness increases itself.

I've tried everything from disabling the ambient light sensor to calling up Dell customer care and after having spent 3 hours on doing what they made me do it still hasn't fixed my problem. I reset the laptop to the factory settings, i reinstalled all the drivers as well.

I have a Dell N311z. Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I'd really appreciate your reply.


Thanks in advance.

A:Automatically changing screen brightness

I've heard of screens that adjust the backlight brightness depending on the content of the screen - the idea is to "fake" a greater contrast range with whiter whites and (particularly) blacker blacks.
I suspect that your screen is doing exactly this and it isn't a software issue at all...I don't know your machine but wonder if there might be a BIOS setting to disable this feature, maybe...

Hi all, I would like to share my recent experience of Thinkpad X1 carbon (4th 2016) screen brightness problem, and how this problem been solved. The laptop cames good and the F5 and F6 function for screen brightness adjusting is OK. Other methods, like in the setting menu and battery menu,  to adjust the brightness are all OK.After one hour or one day or some short time, you will find you cannot adjust the brightness. Even the battery & power options are not working. The problem comes from the driver. First I thought it is the problem of driver of monitor (wide viewing angle high density flexview display 2560x1440 driver). I uninstall, update, change...but none of them work.Finally, I find it is the problem of intel hd graphics 520 . There is another evidence that during the time only this driver of intel hd graphics 520 has been updated automaticly to the latest version!So I uninstall and roll back to the version 20.19.15.4331 and the problem is solved.I did not check the lates version of this driver. But I am sure that the latest version of intel hd graphics 520 has conflict with the lenovo driver for screen brightness! I am sure there are other people face the same problem after the update of hd graphics 520 driver. Any engineer please check it!

I have latest update to display driver. I have two other laptops and each shows much brighter than this one and I am surely disappointed in this display. Not sure if it is because this screen is touch enabled and also works off keyboard that could be the issue and a separate setting could be involved on the touch side of the display as it does work with a stylus pen or touch also. thanks and   I hope I can get this brightness to increase somewhat as it is too hazy for me.

Hello everyone,
I'd like to know how (if possible) to make it so that my laptop does not automatically change screen brightness when plugging in or unplugging.

You see, there is a brightness setting that is saved for plugged in and unplugged, and when you change between plugged in and unplugged it reverts the screen brightness to that saved level.

For example if you have it unplugged and you set the screen brightness to 100% then plug it in, it saves the unplugged screen brightness to 100%. Now when you're plugged in you change it to minimal brightness. Later when you unplug and leave the screen brightness will revert back to 100%.

I'd like to disable this automatic screen brightness change.
Thanks for reading.

The first and only bug so far I have encountered with my P51: Out of the box, the machine is set with the Hybrid mode in BIOS, meaning it switches between the Intel GPU and the Nvidia Quadro M2200 (Optimus). I want my machine to always use the discrete GPU, so I switch to Discrete mode in the BIOS. This however means that you can no longer change the screen brightness of the internal screen, it is always set at 100 %. Definitely seems like a driver bug. I have tried reinstalling Windows already, same result: With the Hybrid mode I can change the screen brightness, with the discrete mode I canīt.

I recently upgraded my W700 to a clean Win7 Pro x64 install, downloaded the latest Win7 drivers from the Lenovo website, and did a manual install of all of them. Mostly there were no problems, however the OSD for mute, volume up/down, and brightness did not work. Here is the page for the Hotkey Features Integration package, which contains the OSD program: Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit), 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bi... The problem appears to be a bug in latest version of the OSD program, for the W700. I collected data on the various versions of the OSD utility; see below (I have used the overall package version as a reference, although the OSD program itself has a different version). Here is the fix: 1) Install the latest Hotkey Features Integration package. This gets the latest other packages, plus a broken version of OSD.2) Manually uninstall the OSD program (in Control Panel:Uninstall); reboot.3) Download and install the Hotkey Features Integration package version 3.85.0000. This is last version which works fully with the W700. Run the package installer, the run the installer itself. Make sure that only the OSD component is selected; run setup; reboot. That should fix it.

Any help / tips on this? System fully updated.... I am not finding a pattern for it.... It happened once to me like five weeks ago, but not again. Suddenly happens every time after Lenovo BIOS update followed by two days ago the Windows 10 system update. So I am attributing it to it and to a BIOS vs. OS conflict of some sort. This is also because it does not seem to be a hardware problem... it can work [almost] perfeclty well for hours and without any screen alteration [flickering] and then just flicker the next day on start up / boot and will continue to flicker. And when works well, I move the screen and it does not alter ... does not flicker... really strange if it were due to a hardware problem. Anything to due with heating/cooling? unlikely, but eventually works with only a low brightness band and in these cases when screen working like that [without major flickering] it does not alter for hours. Thus when having been working for a certain period of time [without sleep], it does not flick(er)... I know there is another thread, but it says on low brightness..... and this happens in any possible screen resolution and brightness combination.

I am concerned about T450 screen and duo core i7U. I'll leave below the specs of each one. *sorry for my english. *Thinkpad T450 specs: Core I7 5600u, 8gb RAM, 1tb HD, screen HD+ (1600x900), W8pro *Lenovo Ideapad Y70 specs: i7-4720HQ, 16gb RAM, GTX 960M 4GB, 1 TB, FHD (1900x1080p).

A:Thinkpad T450 Partitioning issue

Is this the way the machine was delivered initially?  I thought all the machines of this vintage came as GPT, not MBR.

Hi,I have the Asus MB169C+ Portable Monitor which I use regularly with my MacBook. The power delivery also runs through the cable. I have the thinkpad t450 I want to connect to the monitor to. The laptop only has USB 3 ports. I tried a USB-C to USB-3 cable but whilst the monitor powered up, no picture appeared and windows told me the USB had malfunctioned. I then purchased a USB-C to DVI connector cable to connect the monitor to a powered USB hub I have for the laptop. But the monitor wouldn't switch on - I assume that the cable didn't push any power through. Does anybody know whether there is a solution to have the monitor work with the thinkpad? Thanks in advance.

Is it possible to buy a part on the lenovo website and change my panel to an IPS one? I see there are many panels available for my variation of the T450. My variant is the PC-049SNG. I am unsure which use IPS technology. It is under warranty until the summer of 2018, though a panel swap should be easy? kind regards William

A:Thinkpad T450 IPS panel upgrade

Hi William, 
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
As I understand that you have query regarding upgrading your T450 LCD panel to IPS 
Yes it is possible according to Lenovo parts list. And here is one thread which suggests IPS panel upgrade
And here's the part number for IPS panel 04X5916, also you can order the parts on this website.
It will be better to contact Lenovo Support once for LCD panel replacement as system is under warranty.
 
I hope the above information helped you.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!
 Cheers,

Hello, I have been looking aroung and I can't find if my laptop has a discrete graphics card, and if not, how I can add one.Through many topics I found that there shoudl be one gpu nvidia 940m that is compatible with this laptop type, and on the specs page of the laptop i found this info: "Discrete with docking" and I don't know what it means. If somebody can help me, I would be thankful.I suspect I don't have the discrete gpu, but how can I add one?

I have an end user at our company that says whenever he puts his laptop in Hibernate mode, either by closing the lid or going to the Start/Windows logo and chooses Hibernate as a power option.  The machine is T450, Win7 64bit with BIOS version 1.22.  All the drivers are up to date according Device Manager and Lenovo's website and System Update application. I have done the options in Control Panel -> Power Options to ensure that Hibernation is never or disabled and that when you close he lid all settings are set to NOTHING.  Has any else experienced this issue?  I am going on page 3 of a Google Search and exhausting forums on Lenovo's site and Microsoft.  I have not found a solution mentioned in one those forums that has worked for me. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I updated from Windows 8 Pro to Windows 10 recently on my Thinkpad. When I hibernate the laptop it just hangs and does not wake up. I used to face this problem on Windows 8 too but it was not frequent, mostly laptop used to wakeup on power button press. But on Windows 10 it never does. Any solution for this? Power options settingsSleep - All options - Never (I even tried by setting up time for Hibernate option) RegardsAkil
