Re: P500 Brghtness

Hi,

I have had a same problem in the past.

This is how to fix it:

D:\drivers\VGA\Intel\x64\9.17.10.2817

In that folder on the bottom there is a setup file. Run it.

It worked for me twice, when all else failed.

Re: P500 Brghtness

I made a shortcut to the file and have it on my desktop.

I have used it atleast 4 times sinceI got the computer.

Regards,

Re: P500 Brghtness

D:\drivers\VGA\Intel\x64\9.17.10.28177\Setup.exe works every time.

But the issue returns every time a windows update goes and updates my PC. Happens at least once a week. The fix works, but only for so long.

 

This needs a long term fix. Very annoying.

Yes, happens often to me as well. The fix is just a temporary patch. It goes dark for me often too.

Re: P500 Brghtness

cakemaser,

 

After about two hours of trying to find a solution, this one has finally fixed it!  Thank you!

 

The driver was not on my D: drive because I had installed a new hard drive and did a custom clean OS reinstall.

 

But I searched online for the driver and found it here: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS031457

 

Don't know why Lenovo / Intel hasn't fixed this yet in their subsequent driver updates...

 

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Re: P500 Brghtness

Sorry, but this will not fix your issue already tried it. While it does fix the problem for a while, you will have to reinstall it, again and again and again into perpetuity.

Re: P500 Brghtness

Understood.  But at least it's a temporary solution which is much better than no solution.

Re: P500 Brghtness

I have an open trouble ticket with LEnovo that we're working thru. But the next step is to re-install.
