G50: Can't adjust brightness in Windows 8.1

I can't adjust or change my brightness in lenovo G50 with the function key (F11 and F12).

Also, when I do that with the slider in settings, there is no change but brightness and dims off.

Hi Mez,

 

Thank you for quick response.

 Follow the below steps:

 

  1. Go to Device Manager by Control Panel>>Device Manager
  2. Open the Display Adapters (see image below)
  3. Look for your display adapter driver: it's either Intel or AMD. In this illustration on G50, it is Intel
  4. Capture.JPG
  5. Uninstall it.
  6. Then, restart your computer and install the following display/ video card driver instead.
  7. Restart your laptop again once you are done

 Note: you will need to uninstall the existing one and reinstall the new using the link-

 

Good luck!

Regards,

Shashi
