  2. Display Brightness too low even when set at 100%, after updating to Windows 10

    Screen Brightness remains too low in spite of taking many steps

    Dear Pavan,

    Sorry for the belated response as I was in the meanwhile also trying some other solutions that came in connection with my not being able to delete any attachments to a mail in any mode. Here is an update:

    I raised this issue for the first time on April 15, 2016. Several suggestions came in and I tried all of them but the problem remains unsolved.

    The background: Recently I upgraded my 2 laptops (Acer 5750 & Sony Vaio 64-bit, i5) from the earlier Windows 7 to Windows 10. The Brightness of Display which was fully good earlier, became too low on Sony laptop
    as if set to 15 or 20%, even when set to 100%. Being dim, it strains the eye. No such problem is there with Acer laptop.

    Suggestions so far received which have been already implemented are:


    • Brightness & Contrast settings

    • Colour Contrast & Balance

    • High Contrast & Making the Computer easier to see

    • Gamma Adjustment

    • SFC scan now

    • Complete DIS Scan, including RestoreHealth

    • Troubleshooting

    • Clean Reboot

    Unfortunately, the trouble remains. Can you or anyone else help?

    Best wishes,

    Kumar

    Creators Update broke my brightness settings??

    Clearly this is a creators update error. My assumption is that the night light feature implementation has resulted in microsoft corrupting the brightness control programming.

    My system: Acer Aspire V3-772G; 4th generation intel processor ; Windows is completely up to date

    Steps I have taken to solve this problem are all temporary solutions:

    • Disable intel graphics device in device manager. Thereafter enable it.
    • Update latest intel driver .inf through "let me pick from list of available drivers on this computer" process (20.19.15.4624)
    • Rollback driver

    I welcome the night light feature and hope to see it integrated into other operating systems but 100% brightness is not acceptable. This is a
    health concern.

    I would appreciate a microsoft employee's response.
