Lenovo y530 dim screen after 1903 update

2019-08-21, 7:10 AM

Hey all.

 

Last week I had a security update for Windows (version 1803) and after that my screen was extremely dim - I thought it was dead, but everything is just about viewable with a flashlight or direct sunglight. I've refreshed video drivers, restartet with ctrl alt del, started the laptop while hitting shift f8, did a rollback on the drivers. Nothing worked.

 

I proceeded to update the Intel and Nvidia drivers as this has fixed the problem before. No change this time. I also did a system update through Lenovo Vantage.

 

After researching I updated to Windows version 1903. The problem did not go away. Today, I could update the Nvidia drivers. Again, no change. There is also an Intel  graphics update, yet I can't install it: 'the driver being installed is not validated by this computer'. I am not sure if this will fix my dim screen problem, but i've read that the newer Windows updates clash with Intel. Any idea of how I should proceed?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Btw: stupid me did not set a restore point, so it is out of the question.

Greetings and welcome new Lenovo forum user from Norway,

 

Could be related to Windows screen brightness but may need to be on Intel integrated graphics to see the slider.

There is incompatibility with some Intel display drivers and Windows 10 1903.

Install the latest Intel DCH driver.

This is what I thought as well. When I try to install it (either by direct download or the intel driver update software) I get the message 'The driver being installed is not validated by this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer'. Yet, when I try to update via Vantage or the device manager, it says that I am fully updated

Lenovo is way behind the latest drivers.

Just uninstall Intel 630 driver via Device manager. You will get a screen to uninstall also the software !!

Don't restart.. Intsall the the new Intel driver.
