After installing Windows 8.1, I cannot adjust the screen brightness anymore. I checked and updated all drivers and nothing helped. There used to be a brightness slider under the Control Panel in Power Settings. It is gone now. I have searched all over for a fix but I cannot seem to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here are the specs of my computer:
HP Pavilion Touch Smart 23-F213W
Solved! Go to Solution.

I understand you are having an issue with the brightness control on Windows 8.
Right click on desktop,go to Personalize then display(bottom left) Top left Adjust Brightness.
You could also check on this video from YouTube.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, but this does NOT fix the problem. My brightness control worker perfectly before I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. After updating to 8.1, the control slider vanished and the brightness control under settings shows as Unavailable. This is a major problem. The brightness is so bright that it is almost blinding. This problem needs to addressed as soon as possible please.

I have the same problem with a Compaq 18 all in one. The screen is so dark that I can't really see much or effectively use the computer. I have thus reverted back to the original 8.0. Would like to be notified when this is going to be fixed so I can complete the 8.1 update.
