G505S No Backlight with AMD Driver

2015-01-16, 2:52 AM

I tried downloading the vga driver from lenovo site, made for Windows 7 for the g505s.

 

I used this laptop a while ago, and had it reformatted to windows 7, and the driver from lenovo site worked perfectly fine. But now I recently reformatted the laptop and can't get the driver to work.

 

There is  0 backlight when the computer reboots using the AMD driver. I have to switch it back to windows as the controller or else I get no backlight at all. 

 

It's almost impossible to see the screen with 0 backlight.

 

 

I tried using the driver from Lenovo support page but had no backlight.

Then I tried using AMD driver FROM AMD site, that didn't work.

I had to revert the driver back to windows controller.

 

Please help.
