Hi everybody,
 
I am very pleased to tell all of the members of the lenovo community who are using Y510 and having brightness problem in windows XP, that this problem has been solved in my laptop after upgrading BIOS as per instruction provided and I also suggest all the users who are facing same problem to upgrade their BIOS to get rid of the problem.
 
Very Very thankful to Lenovo and associated technical members....

Well, let's make sure it works for more than one person before we close this topic.

I plan on trying it later today.

VICTORYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Brightness Hotkeys in XP now work as they were intended to work - no driver update necessary after the BIOS update.

Thanks to Lenovo to issuing the fix. (Though I suspect this is just a happy coincidence, or else I think this fix would have been publicized as such. Regardless, I'm happy.)

Thank you Lenovo, mine now works and I am using my screen again, although I did have a mini heart attack after updating the BIOS when my laptop wouldn't boot up, not even in Safe Mode! I had forgotten to switch the SATA back to Compatible in the BIOS - other Lenovo users take note! :smileywink:

All,
 
Indeed this was addressed in the BIOS.
 
Thanks to the community for alerting us to the issue, for being patient while it was worked, and lastly for reporting back that the update resolves the issue in the field.
 
I apologize for being a bit out of the loop on the status of the fix.    Ideally, we should communicate a fix just ahead or at the time it is made available.
 
Thanks again.
