    I can't fix my brightness.


    A couple days ago, I updated my display driver, as it was outdated. I then turned off my computer for a couple of hours and came back. I saw that the brightness had been turned all the way up. I tried pressing the lower brightness button, but it didn't work. I looked online to see what would help. Every source I looked at told me to update either my display or monitor driver. I did both and neither helped. It hurts my eyes to look at a computer screen for hours while working on college stuff. I really don't know what to do anymore. Anything that you think could help me would be appreciated. Thank you.

    :)

    Brightness Control not working in Windows 10

    Hi Ella,

    To adjust the brightness, see the steps below:

    • Go back to Power Options, and tick on the High performance.
    • See if you can adjust the brightness.

    If this not work, we highly suggest that you create an Administrator account, and re-do the steps above.

    Let us know how it goes.
     
  3. Brightness is fixed/unadjustable.

    If it was working previously, I'd bet it stopped due to a mirror driver being installed. Mirror drivers are what allow remote meeting software like GoToMeeting, WebEx, and Team Viewer to copy the screen.

    Here's the steps I would suggest:

    • Right-click the Start button, choose Device Manager
    • Go to the Monitor section (not display adapter) and remove everything inside (right-click and uninstall)
    • Click the "Scan for hardware" on the toolbar (has a magnifying glass icon on it)
    • Try adjusting brightness again
    Please let me know how it goes.
