C930 Not Bright Enough

Hi! I just bought the C930 and the screen doesn't seem bright enough. I've changed everything I can think of that would cause the brightness to be so dim. Obviously, I'm missing something. I can't believe this is as bright as it gets if it's on the Max end! If I can't get the screen any brighter than unfortunately, I'll have to take it back. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: C930 Not Bright Enough

Hi, I had this problem with my C930 too up until today. Open Lenovo Vantage and click System Update. Look for the battery update (or/and any others that need completing). It involved a quick download and then a lengthy shutdown. Upon restart, the screen was (and remains) far brighter.

Re: C930 Not Bright Enough

I also found that maximum screen brightness is limited by default when in power saver mode (it changes the scale on the brightness control keys so that the maximum brightness is significantly less).  You can disable this by going into the battery settings and uchecking the box that says something like 'reduce screen brightness when in battery saver'.

Re: C930 Not Bright Enough

My wife got a Lenovo C930 recently and hit the same issue right out-of-the-box. Lenovo Vantage did not show any updates available, however manually downloading and installing the Intel Integrated GFX Driver from the Lenovo support site (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-c930-13ikb/downloa...) fixed the issue. The screen is now significantly brighter than before. I'm amazed Lenovo shipped the laptop with the wrong driver preinstalled.

Re: C930 Not Bright Enough

I have the same problem on my new lenovo, I checked for System Updates on Lenovo Vantage and there are no updates available. Any suggestions on other solutions for this?

Try installing the display driver from the Lenovo site. I linked to the C930 drivers page above.

Re: C930 Not Bright Enough

thank you Daniel15au, that made a big difference.  I feel like when i got my c930 a couple of days ago it was brighter, and then it must have installed a driver update and my max brightness went down significantly.  Reverting back to this driver brought back the  bright screen i rememeber
