Lenovo Thinkpad X250: can't adjust brightness

Q: Lenovo Thinkpad X250: can't adjust brightness

Hi, I can't adjust the screen brightness on my X250 at all. I have Windows 7 on it. When I press + and - the slider thing shows up, and it goes up and down, but nothing happens. 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..

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.

So i have a X250 with both internal and external batteries, i recentley upgraded the bios to version 1.27 and reinstalled my machine from scratch. This is when i noticed that it uses the internal battery first, and then immidiately powers off instead of using the external one. I haven't found anywhere in the bios that i can set the priority of the batteries but shouldn't it be the other way around by default?  Any help is greatly appreciated

A:Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Battery Priority

I switched batteries a minute ago an now it uses the external one first, and refuses to use my 45N1777 battery alltogether. Would a bios-update really make my machine unable to use that particular battery? Seems odd in my mind.

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

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:

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?

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

I have looked long and hard at other peoples' solutions to this problem to no success. I have tried:-installing latest Intel HD 5500 driver from Lenovo site.-installing latest beta driver from Intel-enabllng the Generic PnP Display-Several registry hacks that claimed to work (I reverted back after they failed to do anything) My question is, when will the display driver support brightness settings again, or is there an older version that works that I can download? I can't "roll-back" my display driver, as the current one was the first I used. Using the default Microsoft VGA driver is a non-starter. I need proper resolution. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. I feel like I have tried every solution on the internet, and perhaps the only solution for me is a different driver, possibly.

Whenever i press the fn key and try to adjust brightness then it does't, it does pop up the slider at the corner but it only moves upwards and downwards only one level yet the brightness wont change even that much. I only found one other person that had this problem and he got it solved, but he had an Asus laptop and he got it fixed with some Asus drivers but i have a Dell Vostro laptop. One of the biggest suggestions i have found that has worked for people has been to install some older display drivers, but that hasn't worked for me either.

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.
