hi diplomat7,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

Your problem might be similar to this article

 

Can you try the following:

1. Install the Default Brightness Level Patch, reboot the machine and observe if you can now adjust the brightness via the F11/F12 keys

 

2. If same problem, open the Device Manager > Display Adapters and uninstall the graphics driver (Intel or AMD) and ensure you put a check on Delete the driver software for this device. When finished, navigate to Control Panel (Ivon Views) > Programs and Features and uninstall the Display Driver then reboot. 

 

After the machine has restarted, reinstall the graphics from the B50-70 drivers page or from one of the links below:

 

Intel VGA Driver for Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

AMD VGA Driver for Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards

I installed the default brightness level patch and then restarted the laptop and it has sorted the problem. Thanks for your help.

I did not see intel or amd under Display Adapters. Only Microsoft Display Adapter was there. Don't know what to do next.
