Brightness buttons not working on HP Pavilion g4-1117dx Notebook.

[ Edited ]

Since I upgraded to Windows 8, I noticed that my quicklaunch buttons for my computer's brightness is not working. It comes up on my screen that I have pressed it but it is stuck at the brightest setting no matter what power setting I turn it to. I can't even do it manually.


All my other quicklaunch buttons are working just fine.


I checked my drivers and there is no update for it on Windows 8. I have updated all my drivers to the ones compatable for Windows 8 that is avalible for my computer. I'm stumped.


Anyone got any ideas?

It looks like there are a few Windows 8 drivers for your unit based on this.


Was this the Windows 8 AMD driver located here?


You could try the steps in the linked blog in this post.


Notebooks are a little different in that the brightness is dependent on various functions with the video card driver being one of them.


Have the BIOS been updated from here?
