  1. Brightness will not change


    So I recently did a full reset of my PC and reinstalled windows to remove a bunch of loose solidworks files. After my reset I deleted the old windows by using the cleanup hard drive option. Everything is working fine however I cannot change my screen brightness now. I have tried updating the display adapters and the monitor drivers (I also deleted the hidden monitor drivers.) I have also enabled Generic PnP monitor. In addition I have tried enabling and disabling adaptive brightness and changing the dimmed display and display brightness.


    Nothing seems to be working and I was wondering if anyone has fixed a problem like this. I am currently doing a system scan using sfc /scannow but i dont know if that will fix anything.


    Any advice will help. Thanks

    :)

  3. screen brightness on windows 10

    Hi,

    Some computers can let Windows automatically adjust screen brightness based on the current lighting conditions.

    To manually adjust the screen brightness, we suggest following these troubleshooting steps:

    • Click Start, then select Settings.
    • Choose System, then select Display.
    • Under Brightness and color, move the Change brightness slider to adjust the brightness.

    Feel free to post back if you have other concern.
