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.

Hello,

My laptop: Dell Latitude E5550 - 15.6" FHD - Core i5 5300U - Intel HD Graphics 5500 - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit - 8 GB RAM - 500 GB HDD.

Does anybody know what drivers/software is responsible for displaying On Screen Volume and Screen Brightness Indicator (while pressing Fn+F2,F3,...) ?

What I've found so far that the Dell QuickSet may does the work (link to this solution: No Level Indicator When Using Keyboard Audio Volume Controls), but I couldn't find a compatible version of this soft with Dell Latitude E5550.

I've noticed this happen twice. All of a sudden the screen flickered for just a second and the colors on the screen got brighter. By brighter I mean the the actual color changed (ex. my blue taskbar looked grayish). Both times my laptop was plugged in and the second time it happened I simply unplugged the computer and it changed back. After plugging the adapter back in the screen went to plugged in settings, but did not change the colors. The two times were separated by about two weeks.

I'm curious what might be causing this. It's probably just some little bug with a driver but I wanted to know what you guys thought.

Try uninstalling the monitor driver, re-booting, and letting it re-load the driver when it loads.

Hi: Did you install the graphics driver?  That would be the only suggestion I can offer. This package provides the driver that enables the Intel High-Definition (HD) Graphics in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. If high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video output is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp75501-76000/sp75508.exe Check to ensure you see the Intel graphics adapter listed in the device manager under the display adapters device manager category. If you see a Standard VGA Adapter, that means the graphics driver did not install.

Hey guys

I have a very small problem here. I had a recent format to my laptop. Assume now that I am working on the battery. Whenever I plug in the AC, screen brightness increases perfectly. No problem here. Now imagine, I put the laptop to sleep or hibernate and I plug in the AC. Whenever the laptop comes from sleep or hibernate, screen brightness stays dimmed. I need to adjust it manually every time.

Did any of you experienced something similar to this one? I checked other posts but most of them are related with not being able to change the brightness manually. Nothing like my problem.

I appreciate any suggestion

A:Screen brightness changes on its own?

Your computer's got an ambient light sensor to detect and automatically adjust screen brightness based on surrounding lighting. You'll have to disable the setting. Lenovo has their own energy management program that has a setting for it, but I'd imagine there's something in the Control Panel (maybe Power Options?) that allows you to turn the setting off.

First of all: lowering brightness does not help, I tried it.

On my monitor it seems like everything is too bright, as in places that should be pitch black are a bit too light. For example: on my iPod, even with full brightness settings everything looks normal, but on my PC's monitor it just doesn't look right.

I calibrated color and setting gamma way low really helped, but my contrast is set to full, and my brightness is 75.

The strange thing: when I ran Crysis 1, it fixed the monitor color! So I know the darn thing is capable, I just don't know how to.

When I closed down Crysis it went back to normal.

I like my Toshiba Portege M300 because of compact size, etc. Recently I needed a new hard disk and my repairer loaded W7. I used XP previously and Toshiba do not recommend W7 for this notebook due to age. However, all is working well apart from the screen brightness adjustment. This was previously done by the Fn+F6/F7 hotkeys and there was a driver for this.

In W7 Screen Resolution there is supposed to be a brightness slider but this is not present on my W7 system (I gather that this not an uncommon feature)

How can I adjust the setting sin my notebook to fix a brightness as I am resigned to the fact that the old brightness adjustment will not apply now that I am using W7? Is there a change in the Bios that might help?

A:Screen Resolution Brightness.

I didn't think that the brightness settings of Fn+F6/F7 were affected by the OS but I've been wrong about stuff like that before

In the BIOS, there should be some kind of power or battery settings section that may have some LCD brightness settings that you can try tweaking.

Hi, I have been having an issue recently with newer games. The games I play now are starting to override my gpu screen brightness settings and reverting them back to original brightness.

Basically I have my screen brightness set lower than normal through my gpu control panel. When I play some of these newer games now they override my gpu settings and revert them back to normal, even after the game is exited. I have to then go back into my gpu cotrol panel and set it back to what I had it originally.

This has happened with 2 different graphics cards, Nvidia and AMD both using their gpu display settings panel. Which would be Nvidia Control Panel, and AMD Cataclysm/Crimson Control Panels. Also with different drivers. The games I've had issues with are Fallout 4, Warhammer Vermintide, and now Ghost in the Shell Online. So I don't know if its an issue just for me or if that's just how games are being made now to use their brightness settings to override mine. Any thoughts?

Usually, I can't change brightness either via my 'fn -/+' hotkeys or via the actual brightness slider in the power panel.

Hi, I too have a Samsung Monitor (T220) which possibly - like yours - does NOT have the necessary software to link with the 'auto adjust brightness' system within the Charms Menu. You should however be able to adjust brightness (and anything else) via the controls which will I expect be built into the side (or along the base) of your screen.If you haven't already got a copy of your manual you can download a PDF from Samsung which will show how to make the adjustments you require.

Hey, Guys.

I just yesterday finished my new computer (16Gb RAM, i5-4470k, GTX 770, Win 8.1, etc.) and I just today realized that I cannot change the screen brightness. The button is grayed out and says "Unavailable" which I know cannot be possible.

Now, i have done my research and people say that the fix is to update your drivers through the Device Manager, and I have tried that to no avail. I have tried all possible combinations of "Display Adapters" and "Monitors" drivers. None work. I have been restarting my computer after every change and I have no idea what there is left to do.

One thing that I might add is that a lot of people remedy this problem by reverting their Intel Integrated drives back to an older version, but I do not have an option to change it's drivers. It shows up nowhere in the Device manager.

My eyes are burning as I am typing this and I would even go for a third-party brightness program (if that even exists).
