  1. Windows 10 - Can't adjust brightness despite GPU Driver update


    Hallo,


    I began having this problem a couple of weeks ago. My screen brightness has gotten really dim, as if it's set on the lowest setting out of nowhere, even though it it is set to 100% on all settings.


    I went to the device manager, and found out that there was a yellow triangle next to my GTX 1060m GPU, and when I click on properties, it says: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".


    I thought to myself, ok, must be a driver issue, probably after the recent windows update, so I updated the drivers to the latest one, the laptop restarts, and voila everything works great again... well... that's only until I finish using my laptop and shut it down/put it in sleep. The next time I start it up, the same issue is back again, as if Windows didn't properly reload the drivers or something like that. Restarting wouldn't help. The only thing that makes it work is a fresh driver install, which will only work until the next time the laptop goes to sleep.


    I would really appreciate any help.


    Thank you!

    :)
