Hi @coydimy!


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.


Kindly access safe mode and observe if you'll be able to adjust the screen brightness again.


If still the same, try to perform a clean boot where it starts with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, so that you can determine whether a background program is interfering with your laptop.
