Re: Screen Brightness Issue. Unresolved. HELP!

Thanks for offering the help, but I think this is a software issue. Something is making my computer software from changing the brightness, and causing the white screen that I get whenever the computer goes to sleep.

 

I really need this to get fixed, because leaving the screen white kills the battery when its unplugged, and the brightness is a little too low to deal with 24/7, its like the same brightness as when i'm on battery power.

 

I wanna get someone from lenovo to work with me on this. Customer support has been useless and I don't wanna send my computer away or have to revert to factory settings. I've had the computer for a month and a half already

Re: Screen Brightness Issue. Unresolved. HELP!

yeah I checked the energy management settings, and I havent found any options that have fixed this. Even weirder is that it came out of the blue.

FIXED!

 

I went out on a limb and took the battery out when it was shut off, then did a full reboot and the problem just went away! Weird how that worked but nothing else did. Oh well. Thanks for your help, yigit.
