  1. Problems after Windows 10 update:- Fn +brightness & Lid Close


    After updating Windows 10 Home (to build 21313) on my laptop, I have the following two problems :-

    1. Fn + Brightness keys (F9 and F10) no longer work. Fn + sound keys and other such functions working correctly. I can, however, still use brightness slide bar in Settings to adjust brightness.

    2.When closing lid of laptop, machine will not sleep although power options have been set up for this. Machine will sleep when using the Start menu Power button.

    Both these problems do not occur when I boot to Linux Mint Live from a USB stick.

    I am suspecting a driver issue. Any ideas ?

    :)

    Fn Brightness not working after Windows Update (Dell)

    Hello.

    Fn brightness function was working correctly, until a windows update about 3 weeks ago.

    Then I tried to fix it by going to the device manager and then updating the drivers. (Monitors- Generic Pnp Monitor - Update - Browse my computer for drivers - Let me pick from a list of availabe drivers on my computer- Generic Pnp Monitor)
    HwId SEC544B

    The fix was temporary and I couldn't use the Fn brightness keys after a laptop restart.

    Now I tried unistalling the driver and restarting my laptop. Now the brightness dosen't change at all even after using Mobility Center.

    Is there any fix for this?

    Dell Latitude E6520
    Intel hd3000
    Version 2004 ( OS build 19041.685)

    Thank you!

    Problems after Windows 10 update:- Fn +brightness & Lid Close

    LID close screen still on

    Well, it was worth checking.

    How long have you had this Asus ROG? Has it ever turned off the screen when the lid is closed?

    The last post in this thread suggests it may be a hardware problem, the section starting 'Here's an interesting story about the GL502VS in general' describes a sequence of replacements from Asus, one of which behaved this way. Oddly, the OP actually wanted this behaviour.
