IdeaPad y580 brightness keys won't work

2013-02-07, 3:28 AM

I just got my IdeaPad y580 and promptly installed windows 7 64. I downloaded and installed a bunch of the drivers, including the energy one. After installing that one my brightness controls started to display the OSD, but it doesn't actually change the brghtness.

Solved! See the solution

Hi fakevalcheck,

 

Just wanted to check with you, did your machine come with WIn8 or did you purchase as free DOS?

 

Regards
