T400 lowest brightness too high

2017-01-02, 20:23 PM

Im trying to solve issues with my brightness settings on old but still brave little T400.
After update from Win7 to Win10, my lowest brightness settings is still too brigt and it is very uncomfortable especially when working in the dark. Before update to Win10 i could comfortably work even in complete darkness. 
Even in comparsion with my other T430u there is a huge difference between minimal brightnesses.

I know there is usually problem with adaptive brightness in Win10 but changing anything around display in advanced power management did absolutely nothing,

Does the Fn-Home and Fn-End (brightness control) work? If not you need to have the Hotkey software installed.
