V570 - screen still bright after adjusting the bars to 0

I decreased the brightness of my screen by pressing fn and the down arrow there are no more bars showing. when visiting some websites i feel some type of brightness sensation in my eyes. are there any updates for this type of software for brightness and light

 

Mod's Edit: System model added to the front of Subject line to improve visibility / clarity.

I've updated your post with the V570 model number based on your prior forum postings.  I assume that the V570 is the model you are referring to in this post?

 

As for your issue I have one suggestion.... have you tried disabling the Adaptive Brightness setting in Windows if available?  Here is a link that explains how.....

I thought of one more thing to try.  I assume that you still have Windows 7 installed on your system.  What I would try is uninstalling the Lenovo Energy Management software and then reboot your computer.  Once the computer has started again then install a fresh copy of the Lenovo Energy Management software.  Possibly this will resolve the issue you are having since part of the software's function is related to the hot keys used to adjust the screen brightness.   Here is a link to the Windows 7 version of Lenovo Energy Management.....

Have you tried re-doing the Lenovo Energy Manager installation?

Re: V570 - screen still bright after adjusting the bars to 0

That's strange that the brightness came back.  Something else must be undoing what the Lenovo Energy Manager software fixes.  

 

Have you ever updated the video drivers?  Once the video drivers are updated try a fresh install of the Lenovo Energy Management software again. Then see if the problem stays corrected.

 

Not sure which video driver your system uses so I will include links below for both the Intel and NVidia drivers.

 

Click here for Intel                            Click here for NVidia
