Re: Lenovo Z400 touch Brightness Problem in Windows 10

1. Press the Windows key + R to open the run;

 

2. Type "regedit" to edit the windows registry;

 

3. Search for "FeatureTestControl" through the search:
or go on the path:

/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Control/Class/{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}/0001

 

Double-click on the FeatureTestControl, open the box to edit. Change the Value data field for:

F00F ou FFFF

 

Close regedit and restart your computer.

Re: Lenovo Z400 touch Brightness Problem in Windows 10

THANK YOU. I've been working on this issue for hours. After a recent automatic driver update, my screen's brightness was stuck at 100%. I tried disabling and re-enabling the driver, uninstalling and re-installing it, reverting the update (that option was greyed out), installing F.lux (didn't work to dim my screen!), rebooting my computer, running antivirus programs. . . . Nothing worked until your suggestion to revert back to the old Windows 8 drivers! I'm using Windows 10 so I never would've thought to do that, but your suggestion worked perfectly. Thank you so much!!

Re: Lenovo Z400 touch Brightness Problem in Windows 10

This works! ... Until my computer reverts to the newest driver, which it does at least once (sometimes twice) a day. Then my brightness again becomes unresponsive and I have to go through the whole process again of reverting to the Win 8 video driver. Is there any way to make it "stick"?

Re: Lenovo Z400 touch Brightness Problem in Windows 10

If you're tryiung to prevent the new intel driver from reinstalling, I have a fix that has worked for me.

 

First off, make sure you have installed the older 8.1 driver, then let windows update install the latest driver from intel.

 

From there, right click on your start menu button and go to device manager.

 

Go to the Display Adapter section and right click on Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000, then choose "Update Driver Software..."

 

Next choose the option "Browse my computer for driver software"

 

Then choose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"

 

From there, choose an older version of the Intel Graphics Driver from the list provided (A date should appear next to each driver). Click next and an older version of the graphics driver should then be installed, and stay installed.

 

 

I hope I could help!

Re: Lenovo Z400 touch Brightness Problem in Windows 10

Thanks! The compatibility mode in the setup.exe made it work for me.

I used the setup.exe on 9.17.10.3223 folder to make the installation.

My laptop is the Z400 touch.

Re: Lenovo Z400 touch Brightness Problem in Windows 10

Yep. This is the answer.  I logged in just to say that as of 2-22-2018 this is still the solution.
