LENOVO P500 BRIGHTNESS ISSUE!

I recently purchased a lenovo p500 ideapad from bestbuy around 3 weeks ago. just on thursday, i press the f11 key to lower the brightness and it imidiatley went very dim. i cannot bring the brightness back up even tho the button and the computer says the brightness is all the way up. the screen is at the dimmest setting possible and i have talked to 3 lenovo specialist nd they were not able to help me. they told me to take it back to best buy but that is a hassle for me. i am running windows 8 and i have checked the drivers to see if they are updated and they are but i cannot bring the brightness back up. this is very frustrating. someone please answer back ASAP! thank you.

Try this trick out! I got my screen brightness back up by completely shutting down my laptop. Boot it back up and as the Lenovo start up screen appears press the F12 key. It raised mine back up.

I have the same very dim screen issue, running Windows 8 (64bit).  Tried the power up pressing F12 but did not work.  Any other ideas?  Anyone?  Thanks.

Try updating the intel hd graphics driver from the intel site. It might help.
