Yoga 910 brightness control not working

I just bought a yoga 910.  One of the first things I did was upgrade the windows 10 home to windows 10 pro.  Anyway, the screen brightness hot buttons don't seem to be doing anything.  Also, adjusting screen brightness through display settings also doesn't do anything.  Can someone tell me if there is something wrong with my machine or is this caused by windows 10 pro?

 

Thanks

Hi ashes3d  and welcome to the community,

 

Since upgrading to Pro have you downloaded the drivers from the Lenovo support website to restore all functions to your unit?

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on

Re: Yoga 910 brightness control not working

Thanks for the suggestion.  Is there any specific driver that I should be updating?  I already tried reinstalling the graphics driver, but no change. Anything else I should try?

Re: Yoga 910 brightness control not working

Tried this one as well, but still not able to change brightness.  I also tried using the Microsoft basic Display adapter, but still not able to change brightness.  Is it possible that there is something wrong with my machine?

Re: Yoga 910 brightness control not working

Certainly not. If the issue still persists, it means the latest video drivers are still unavailable.

 

Try this:

 

1) Search for Device Manager in Start Menu
2) Expand the Monitors section
3) Right click on Generic PnP Monitor and 
4) Click on Enable and you are good!

 

Also, You could roll back the operating system to previous version to check if there any issue with operating system.

 

Update us how it goes.

Re: Yoga 910 brightness control not working

That worked.  Thanks for your help.  Note that I had some other driver installed under Monitor.  I had to manually change to Generic PnP Monitor by changing drivers.  Thanks for your help!
