Windows 10 update brightness adjustment issue

Q: Windows 10 update brightness adjustment issue

Just last night I finally got around to updating to Windows 10 and now I am unable to adjust the brightness. Not only are the keys not working, even going to the settings and adjusting them that way does nothing. I don't really want to be blinded at night when I use my laptop, let alone have my battery drained because of it. Please help!

Hi: In order to try and help you, I would need to know the full model # or product # of your notebook. The product number can be found on the same sticker as the serial number. Some notebooks will not have graphics drivers that work on W10.

Have just done the latest Windows 10 1803 update on my T410 (Intel Graphics), and the screen brightness is stuck at maximum.  The Fn + Home/End keys bring up the on-screen widget, but it has no effect.  Similarly the brightness slider in the settings panel has no effect.  Looked at the Intel driver 8.15.10.2900 in device manager, tried the update driver button, but no updates available. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks

I know my Yoga 710 is well past the warranty period and I complained to Lenovo long ago about the issue - the backlight is at full brightness all the time, it cannot be adjusted in any manner, ever, running Windows. And yes, I've successfully installed Windows 7 Professional x64 on this Yoga 710 in the recent past with 100% hardware support, even the touch screen was working and Device Manager was fully compliant, no yellow or red error notifications at all.But even under Windows 7 I had no ability to adjust the brightness and that means so much for the vaunted "8 hours of battery life." Now given this laptop is older, and the battery holds about 97% capacity from the original factory state, but because that backlight cannot be adjusted at all that means I barely get 2 hours from this thing even with the adjustments using Lenovo Vantage and the latest drivers for ALL the hardware. I really have to say I'm quite pissed at Lenovo for not resolving this because I've seen a bunch of people here and at other forums complaining about this problem with the Yoga series of laptops/convertibles.Oh, and I shut down rigtht now when I'm done with this post, then insert a USB drive with any Linux distro on it - Manjaro, Arch, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora, it doesn't matter - and as soon as it boots to the desktop I can adjust the brightness without a single issue. So, I wonder why this issue is a problem for Windows and why it's never been adequately resolved.

Hi, I observed a problem on my new pc with windows 7.

When I try to adjust the screen brightness, the adjustment slider is always in minimum in Control panel>Hardware and Sound>Power Option, as shown in this picture


but once I go to the "Edit Plan Settings", the slider is in maximum position, as shown in this picture


I can adjust the brightness under the "Edit Plan Settings" but not in the "Power option". Something must be wrong here, does anyone know how to fix this? Many thanks!

A:Problem on screen brightness adjustment(Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit)

Hmmm... That slider doesn't even show on my PC until I edit plan settings.

Is this a laptop? Is your screen dark?

If you can't adjust the slider on the Power Option window it likely isn't doing anything anyway. It might not be anything to worry about if your screen is operating normally. I know of no fix for it, but others might.

I had recently updated my computer with the recent windows updates and I had received a problem that affected my brightness. I was unable to even get the option of changing my brightness. Although I solved the problem before I got rid of it.
The Problem was that my Graphics driver was the problem. So I uninstalled it and then restarted my computer. My graphics card is an AMD Radeon 8670M. Before I uninstalled I went through and updated all my drivers then uninstalled it.
For me at least the setting had come back and after the reboot along with the amd driver.

I am not a tech guru. This is just how I solved this problem. Hope this helps. By the way you keep all the updated drivers.

Hey guys, so I upgraded to Windows 10 which caused the computer to automatically update my drivers and what not on July 29th, and here I am with a brightness adjustment that does not work whatsoever. Pretty much, whenever I press the less/more brightness buttons on my keyboard, the display will show the brightness gauge going up/down but the actual screen brightness remains constant. Yet, when I roll back the driver it manages to allow my brightness adjustment to function again, but my second monitor will not connect even though it is plugged in via HDMI. Obviously attempting to get my old Windows 8 driver will do me no good since this laptop is no longer a Windows 8. I'm pretty stumped here, especially since I'm not the best with the complex side of computers, I'd just like my brightness adjustment to work again while maintaining/keeping everything else Thank you in advance for your help

I recently replaced an inverter for one of my customer on a Dell E1705. He was originally having problems with the LCD screen of his laptop going dark after a few minutes of using his system. I called Dell to see if I could get a replacement inverter but, unfortunately, they only offered an LCD replacement. I instructed my customer that, if he wanted, to find the inverter on Ebay (I showed him where to get a good one). He returned after a few weeks with the inverter and I installed it.

At first, whenever he would unplug the laptop from the ac adapter, the screen would go dark. I checked the BIOS settings and everything was set to the highest brightness level. I removed Dell's Quickset utility and used the built in Intel Display Properties. This fixed his problem with unplugging the ac adapter and losing the brightness level.

Then, he came back and told me his FN keys were not working. I hit myself on the head after I had realized that removing the Quickset disables the buttons. Don't ask me why, just call it a brain fart. I disabled Intel's power saving feature and reinstalled Quickset. To my surprise, the screen did not go dark when on battery power and now his FN keys work.

Here's my problem: I cannot adjust the brightness level with the FN keys. The brightness meter's graphic shows the brightness level going up or down, but no change in brightness is observed. I change the brightness settings manually through Quickset, only to have the screen go... Read more

This might be nothing, but recently the buttons to adjust my brightness were not working at all on my Lenovo Yoga 710. It might have been the update to Windows 10 but I'm not sure. I don't think the laatest update was that recent and this issue is a more recent problem. I tried this: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-710-11ikb/solution... I updated my driver like it's suggested at the bottom of the page. So far it's been okay. The buttons work, although I noticed that on my most recent reboot they stopped working but this was fixed by disabling and then enabling again the Generic PnP Monitor. I'm not sure if this will become a permanent issue yet. However, I noticed that when I press the button to dim my display all the way down, it turns off my screen. The computer is still on but my display is totally black. I'm quite certain that it didn't do this before. Is it supposed to do this or am I worried about nothing? It turns back on once I press the button to increase the brightness.

I set my monitor to a set brightness that I want, but I sometimes see my screen dimming and brightening on its' own, even when I'm actively using my laptop. I think 10 must have some kind of auto-brightness adjustment capability, that detects lighting conditions around me and adjusts my brightness accordingly. This is acceptable if my Android smartphones do this, since I'm always on the go and in varying indoor/lighting conditions, but I'm usually stationary when using my notebook and don't want 10 adjusting the brightness to anything other than what I explicitly set it to. Besides, there are softwares that do this far better, like f.lux. My Intel graphics driver is also installed, so maybe that could be playing a factor.

How can this aggravating, malformed "feature" be disabled?

Thanks!

Hi

> Original driver here on page TOSHIBA ... is too old.... and driver from AMD mae this problem...

I don?t know how to help you buddy? the point is that the graphic card driver which is available on the Toshiba driver page is modified for the mobile usage and its recommended by Toshiba.
Usually you should use this driver to ensure the proper notebook functionality.

Of course you can try to use the other graphic card drivers but in some cases different version could lead to small different issues: in this case ?> brightness control problem.

However, you could try to install the AMD/ATI graphic driver from Toshiba EU driver page but check the driver released for other notebook series. Maybe you will get a newer driver version.

Last but not least similar brightness issues could be by Value Added Package update (for Win 7) as well as BIOS update (if available)

This seems to be common on all Windows 8 machines as I've tested on many. With Windows 8 if I use the laptop or tablets brightness keys, it goes up in increments it seems of almost like 10%. However if I use touch and slide my finger, you can fine tune the brightness in between. Is there any way to do something similar with the physical keys through an update or plug in? My issue is I'm sensitive to brightness so I use my laptop at the lowest setting, but even 1 notch up is too bright for me, so I'm always using my finger to try and get it right in between which is a pain.

I purchased an HP 6735b laptop, designed for Windows Vista, without a hard drive. I purchased a hard drive and installed Windows 7 Professional. I did all of the important and critical updates from the Microsoft website and updated all drivers using Slim Drivers. Somewhere along the line the screen brightness dimmed and wouldn't allow me to adjust it.

Through the device manager, I found the display adapter, which is ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. Went to ATI website for updated driver and found the latest for 3200, which I installed. It appeared to work, I was able to adjust the brightness back up.
However, when I shut the laptop off and start it again the screen is dimmed. The hot keys (FN + F10) will not work, but when I type in "adjust screen brightness" and go to the screen that allows you slide the bar up and down to adjust the brightness it suddenly pops into the pre-adjusted brightness setting.

I've tried to go to the AMD website and download their program that makes sure the drivers are updated, but after the program loads, you click on the button to search, I receive an message that says "Sorry, something went wrong".

Good day all I have installed Windows 10 Pro 64-bit on an old Lenovo G550. It used to work well on Windows 7, but now I cannot install or update the display drivers in order to connect an external display (LG 49" TV) at 1920 x 1080. Windows installed its own useless drivers that obtains at least 1366 x 768 on both the laptop and the TV when displays are duplicated. Then the highest I can go is 1366 x 768. When I select "Show only on 2" (which is essentially what I want to do), it goes down to an even worse display resolution, but this also disables the Resolution drop-down.  I have downloaded every version of drivers know to God and man from Lenovo's and other sites, but all of them tells me: "This computer does not meet the minimum requirement for installing software." I have deleted the driver and reinstalled via "Scan for hardward changes" as well. I have done a Windows update as well. I have no idea what to do next. How do I fix this stupid problem?

Hello guy.
I have a little issue with me Sony VAIO laptop after installing Windows 8. In fact I did not have this issue when i installed it 1st time, (meaning I was running Windows 8 previously on this machine without this issue).
The Issue:
I can not control the brightness level by it's default short keys (Fn+F5,F6), meaning when i press those keys screen adjustment animation is appearing on Max. level but the screen is going dark! I can control it from Power options though! but as soon as i touch those keys Fn+F5 or Fn+F6, the screen is going dark again.
All the other Fn + .... keys are working properly,, I have installed all the necessary drivers and utilities for them (as I always was doing previously). I am installing:

1st [Setting Utility Series]
2nd [Sony Shared Library]
3rd [VAIO Event Service]
4rth [VAIO Control Center]

I read in some forums that by Turned off Display Brightness from [Image Quality] menu in [VAIO Control Center] is solving this issue (which was reported only while using Windows 8), but the problem is taht I do not have that [Image Quality] menu in my [VAIO Control Center] and II don't remember if I had it on my previous installation of Windows 8.
