Q: Can't adjust my brightness level on Lenovo ideapad 110-15IBR

I recently purchased a new system, and it came with no OS pre-installed so I installed windows 8 O.S, but found out i couldn't adjust the brightness level, i tried everything, updating drivers, disabling etc, even a lenovo power managent app, nothing worked, so i reinstalled a new OS. Windows 10, still can't adjust my brightness level. Please help, im out of options, and the display is really doing a number on my battery performance, even in powersaving mode.

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Any help would be great.
 

A:How do I Adjust the Brightness Level on my Dell inspiron 1705 notebook

you should have a key with " Fn" on the keytop. The printing should be red or blue
you then will have normal keys, Ummm , maybe the "F1-9" keys that will have the same color printing, you should have brightness and contrast. You have to hold down the Fn key then tap a key with the same color. You will have to look it could be a circle half filled in the sun , what ever on the key cap. There maybe other functions like key locks , sound... etc. the key locks effect the way the KB works.

My Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR won't turn on. The power light would turn on after I press the power button only to turn off a second or so later. This would happen whether the laptop was plugged to AC adapter or not. I remember a similar problem with another laptop before and had to take it to computer repair, but I don't have that kind of money now. What should I do in order to fix the laptop myself? I recall that last time the motherboard or the hard drive was damaged and had to be repaired or replaced. (It's been a while, so my memory is a bit fuzzy.) If this time is no different, how can I replace or repair motherboard or hard drive (and which one do I do)?

I have seen several posts for units with similar product numbers, but I can't find this exact machine anywhere in reference to upgrading the RAM.  It comes with 4 g of RAM and 1 TB hard drive.  I wanted to add 4 more G of RAM.  Turns out the 4 it has are soldered to the board and I don't seem to be able to find any literature or any place on the unit where I can insert any RAM at all.   It seems the only spot is where it it soldered to the board.  Is it true I cannot upgrade or increase the RAM in this unit??

Hi YoungPillar,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
If you receive this message, it is either the computer do not see you storage drive or the image to open Windows is bad. Best way to proceed is to check the BIOS (FN + F2 on restart/ via novo key) and check if the storage drive is detected.
 
Call in technical support for immediate action.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hello. I have lenovo ideapad 300-15IBR and I want to replace my ordinary keyboard by backlight keyboard. So could you tell me if is it possible? Is my laptop compatible with backlit keyboard?

A:Lenovo ideapad 300-15IBR backlit keyboard?

Hi tachilla, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking the general specification for IdeaPad 300 (15'') Platform Speci?cations here, backlit keyboard features is not available to similar model types 80Q7 as the motherboard does not offer power connection for the keyboard backlit as shown from the hardware manual FRU keyboard list pages 78-81.
 
No power connection portSample keyboard with backlit cable
 
You can follow the keyboard guide here on page 40-41 of the hardware manual to physical check on your motherboard model as it may not likely be compatible with a backlighted keyboard making it not possible to upgrade.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Hello. I bought Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR S/N: PF0I4KLGModel: 80T70035RAI have some problems with it. 1. Is it have a fan to cool itself? Because I don't hear any noise when it's working. And the temperature of CPU is 50-60 degrees Celsius. Room temp is 32 degrees Celsius. Is it normal? 2. RAM memory is 4 GB, but Windows uses only 2 GB. And other 2 GB it "reserves hardware". Why I only can use 2 GB? How can I use all 4 GB of memory? 3. I noticed that Hyperthreading of CPU is Available but not Activated. How to activate it? Thank you for answers.

You have to install Lenovo Utility to get this to work. Also after manual reinstallation you should install various drivers for components in your laptop from Lenovo website to get the best of your laptop. If you don't want to do that, the better soution than reinstallation is to restore factory image using OneKey Recovery. This will automatically reinstall Windows with all drivers built in as well as various Lenovo applications like Lenovo Utility.

Thank you forum! Much gratitude here for your selfless service!!

I am not very tech savvy but I am usually able to solve my own problems. My cat jumped on my keyboard, my display went dim and I could not adjust it ! I am able to move the brightness bar up and down but nothing happens. First, I tried a system restore but that did not work. I went back about a month which was the earliest restore point I had. Then I went to device driver and looked to see if my driver was functioning properly. I was told it was updated and functioning properly. I tried clicking on the windows generic monitor driver also as advised which did nothing. I went to the device driver on the pc and updated from that which also did not work. I am using windows 10.

Two of the keys on the keyboard are used to adjust the brightness; but, if they are printed in the second color, you may need to hold down the Fn key for them to function. If you can't find them (they look like little suns), I need the model number of the Lenovo to help you more.

It's really bright and have already been like this for weeks. The colour is slightly wrong as well. Restarting, shutting down or closing and opening the lid does nothing.It got stuck after I disconnected it from my docking station, so I tried connecting it and disconnecting again - nothing. I've updated Windows and nothing there as well. I'm getting really frustrated since nothing works.. Is there something to do? Please help..

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.

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.

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:
