how to adjust screeen brightness on HP Pavilion dv6-6b26us, Windows 7 64-bit

Have tried using the FN key with the F2 to dim the overly bright screen.  It has no affect.  Can't adjust brightness of screen

Thank you for your reply Manjunath.  I had already tried that and it didn't work.  It still doesn't.   I can not dim the exceptionally bright screen.  Any other suggestions???

Easy,

 

Go to Device Manager, (Computer>[mouse right  click]>Manage>Device Manager).

 

In the category "Display", select your Generic PnP Display and uninstall it, then force windows
to detect hardware changes, througth the computer icon at the window top bar.

 

After windows notification, saying that your display it's installed again, give it a try with fn+[screen F key].

 

Regards,

Re: how to adjust screeen brightness on HP Pavilion dv6-6b26us, Windows 7 64-bit

When I get to the display screen and click "Adjust brightness" I get the screen for Hardware and Sound -> Power Options. 

 

When I try to type Display -> in the search box I get the search function.  (I can use this to get Display, but I wind up with the same error).

 

Is there some way to type the -> in your message to allow the use of the search box to get to Display Brightness?

The menu I get after the right-mouse click does not have Manage as a choice.
