  1. Can't Change Brightness On Gateway Laptop


    I have upgraded from Vista 32 bit to Win 10 32 bit on a Gateway P6822. Everything appears to be working fine except I can't adjust the screen brightness; its stuck on maximum. The hotkeys and also the Win 10 settings do actually make the brightness sliders move up and down but with absolutely no effect on the brightness.

    Windows says the graphics display driver is supposed to be the best one.

    Display Adapters
    Mobile IntelR 965 Express Chipset Family Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1
    Driver Date 1/10/2012
    Version 8.15.10.2697

    Monitors
    Generic Display Monitor

    I installed the Intel driver support assistant and it could not find any new drivers.

    I can't find any kind of Intel control panel installed to adjust brightness. The latest Intel Control panel app From the windows store is not compatible with this machine.

    Maybe I can try to test the basic Microsoft display driver, although I can't see that option anywhere. Or maybe I can use third party software to adjust the brightness.


    Your thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.

    Kind regards
    Chris

  2. Unable to Change Screen Brightness of Laptop


    So I'm not sure how long this has been happening but for some reason, I can't change the brightness on my laptop screen. I have linked a picture and as you can see, my brightness says 0% and that I can't change it, however my actual brightness is at 100%. I have looked around everywhere and the only responses I have found don't work for me. Here's a list of everything I have tried:
    - Reinstalling Display Drivers
    - Rolling Back Display Drivers
    - Reset Settings on UWT4
    - Power and Battery Settings
    (UWT4 or Ultimate Windows Tweaker 4 is a customizer for Windows 10 and I thought that might be the problem but it wasn't)

    If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this, it's greatly appreciated! Thanks! -

    Brightness changing problem

    Hi,

    Changing the screen brightness on your laptop can be adjusted by going to
    System > Display
    where you can use the slider to adjust the brightness. If your PC supports, you may also let Windows to automatically adjust the screen brightness according to the current lighting condition by enabling
    Change brightness automatically when lighting changes.

    If you've already the tried the suggestions above but the screen brightness still doesn't change, then we suggest updating the display drivers. Please see

    for the steps on how to update the drivers.

    Feel free to let us know if you need further assistance.
