G580:Problem using screen brightness hotkeys

Q: G580:Problem using screen brightness hotkeys

Hello folks once again I am here to annoy you. Today morning I restored my boot order which was damaged. Now a new problem is there. Brightness control key is not working(Fn+? ) is not working neither on windows nor in linux. All other Fn functions including Fn+? are working fine. Also the ? key standalone or with other keys like ctrl+alt+? is working. Any solution. Thanks in advance.

Hi! I have such a problem:When I watch a video or just open different windows on my laptop, the brightness changes.For example, if my desktop picture is dark and I close a white window, then in a few seconds my desktop becomes brighter. If my desktop picture is white and the window I close is also white, nothing happens.What's that?Thanks in advance!

Hello friends,I bought recently the Lenovo B71-80 (PF0FYVFG) without an operating system.There was only the driver CD for Windows 10. Since I am not a big fan of Windows 10 I have chosenWindows 7 Pro. 64bit SP1 and installed it on the notebook. In addition I have downloaded from the support page drivers for my operating system and installed it, except the driver for the category "Power Options", because there were no drivers for Win 7.All Windows updates have downloaded and installed, then load the current Intel HD 520 graphics driver and installed. The Lenovo Solution Center installed and completed hardware test without error.All FN buttons work and are displayed on the screen when I operated, except being the brightness control.I do not know what to do, somebody has perhaps any advice for me?

The brightness hotkeys used to be functioning correctly. After updating the Hotkey Support driver from (pre-installed) version 6.2.20.8 Rev.A the secondary screen and brightness function keys stopped functioning. I reset the device to factory settings after running a hardware diagnostic on the keyboard using the built-in hardware diagnostic utility. The function keys worked again. I updated Windows 10 with the latest available updates. The keys still worked. I updated all the HP drivers (except the Hotkey Support application) to the latest version using the pre-installed HP SoftPaq program. The function keys still worked. I created a system restore point. I then updated the Hotkey application to the latest version after which the keys stopped functioning. I uninstalled the latest version and installed version 6.2.20.8 Rev.A again, but the function keys did not work. I ran a system restore to the system restore point I created earlier and the keys worked again. Apparently something is wrong with the installation of the Hotkey Support application, causing it to not work. I hope this issue can be routed to the appropriate team and that it will be investigated.

Hi, You're notebook has Intel/Nvidia switchable graphics and looking atr the screenshot, it doesn't look like the Intel driver is installed. Try the following. Download the Intel HD Graphics driver on the following link and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72501-73000/sp72810.exe When done, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the link below. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72001-72500/sp72043.exe When this has completed, do not restart the notebook as prompted, instead open your Downloads folder, right click the Intel HD Graphics package and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation. When this has completed, restart the notebook and let Windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

Hello. I have a Lenovo G580 Notebook with Windows 10 installed. The issue is that the Windows hotkeys, that is Windows key and other letter combinations, aren't working. For example, normally, if I press Windows key + I, then the Settings app should open up or if I press Windows key + R, then Run should open up. But the Start screen opens up instead in all such cases.

This is happening since I have updated the Synaptics touchpad driver via Windows Update. If I uninstall the driver, then the hotkeys start working again. But as soon as I install the driver, they stop working. This was not happening with Windows 10 before, even when the Synaptics driver was installed. It has suddenly started happening couple of months ago. Also I cannot completely uninstall the Synaptics driver because my laptop came with it itself nor can I stop the driver from updating as it is an important driver and it needs to be updated to be compatible with Windows 10.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

If you PM me your email address I will send you a link to the Synaptics driver that works for me. Then you will have to use the HideUpdate hotfix to keep Windows update from changing it.

Hello, I have a HP Notebook PC - 15-r213ns (ENERGY STAR) with windows 8.1 Last night, after a windows update, the hotkeys for brightness (F2 and F3) the volume (F7 and F8), wifi (F12) and all the other ones have stopped working.  I can still change the brightness and volume through windows but i cant do it anymore using the keys. The functions keys do work, like F5 refresh or F3 browse. I have noticed that before i had to press the FN key for this and now it does it without the FN + Fx, so i suppose the windows update must have changed somthing here. They used to work fine before the update. I have re-installed the display drivers (NVIDIA G-FORCE 820-M) and looked for new drivers or updated drivers using HP Support asistant but everything is up to date. I was looking for hot key drivers in the HP drivers page for my product but couldnt find any keyboard, hotkeys related software or drivers. any suggestions? thanks in advance, Marco

I recently bought a recondishioned hp laptop.

The one small niggle I have with it is that the screen seems slightly dull.
I have noticed that if you increase the brightness using the keyboard toggle, it always resets to a low brightness when you restart it.

I am just wondering does anyone know if this is normal, if there is a way to store the brightness setting or any other info? As I am planning to sell the laptop, but dont want to sell it until I know it is ok.

Many thanks

I have had my acer for probably about a year and half or so. I have been having a problem with the screen/brightness for awhile now. Before, whenever I adjusted the screen, the brightness just cut out. I could just barely see what was happening. I fixed this by just closing the laptop and putting it to sleep, then opening the laptop and turning it back on. The brightness returned to normal. If i adjusted the screen again though, it would cut out. I assumed it was some connection problem with the screen. Now my screen won't light up at all. There is no brightness, and the display is very faint. Does anyone have any solutions in which I could fix this problem at home instead of having to pay money?

Hi,

I have a problem with the screen brightness constantly dimming itself...it doesn`t matter which power setting I try or which route I go down...whenever re-setting,the tab just moves itself back down to the lowest setting...sometimes it stays bright for around an hour and then once again will revert.

I have installed a new hard drive and so this is a new installation of windows 7 32 bit...but prior to this new hard drive I had the same problem.

I have read through similar threads but can`t find a solution so wonder if anybody is able to advise please ? ...all drivers and updates are present on the system.

hi everyone, i'm not exactly sure if this is the place to post. but i'm hoping someone can help me with this.

as described in the title of the thread, my nokia 5310 music express cellphone used to have a roll of hotkeys, where i can press the down button, and choose from a list of about 6 hotkeys laid out horizontally. however i think it was because of poketdialing or something, my phone's layout changed. i only get 4 hotkeys, and they're activated by pressing the 4 directions. each direction being a hotkey. problem with this is that it's too easy to poketdial and go into those applications, meaning i'll have to turn on automatic key lock, but since it's the 5310 i always listen to music with it, once it locks the keypad i have to unlock it to change the music, making it very annoying. anyways if i can get some help in this matter that'll be awesome.

Recently I updated windows 10 from windows 8.1. I could adjust the screen brightness when I was running on windows 8.1, but I can't do it any more since I installed a driver update from Intel. So I searched solution and managed to reinstall the older driver again and it worked. However when I tried to run a game the FPS became ridiculously low, much lower than it was on windows 8.1.  I found that the other graphic card, Nvidia Geforce GT635m, which had its latest driver installed,  wasn't working properly, by disabling this graphic card in device manager and I got the same FPS. I tried to install the new version of the driver of Intel HD graphic 4000, the GT635m worked again and the game got back to normal FPS while the screen brightness adjustment didn't work. So, here's my question: how could I keep both screen brightness adjustment and GT635m working properly?

Hi, I observed a problem on my new pc with windows 7.

When I try to adjust the screen brightness, the adjustment slider is always in minimum in Control panel>Hardware and Sound>Power Option, as shown in this picture


but once I go to the "Edit Plan Settings", the slider is in maximum position, as shown in this picture


I can adjust the brightness under the "Edit Plan Settings" but not in the "Power option". Something must be wrong here, does anyone know how to fix this? Many thanks!

A:Problem on screen brightness adjustment(Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit)

Hmmm... That slider doesn't even show on my PC until I edit plan settings.

Is this a laptop? Is your screen dark?

If you can't adjust the slider on the Power Option window it likely isn't doing anything anyway. It might not be anything to worry about if your screen is operating normally. I know of no fix for it, but others might.

hi sameerjha28,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
?
You can try doing this:
-Turn off the computer.
-Unplug AC Adapter and remove the battery.
- Hold the Power button Down for at least 10-15 seconds, Then try reconnecting the AC adapter only and leave the battery out, turn it ON and see if it will make any difference.
- If it powered on Try it with the battery and check if it would still turn on properly.
?
If the above steps did not work Try an external monitor and check if it works there.
 
I would suggest Contact Lenovo Technical Support for service if the steps above did not help.

Just started happening this week.   It's stuck at the boot screen "lenovo".   I tried many different methods like removing battery, holding power button to reset, etc.  The *only* way to get it to boot is the remove memory card, and put it back.  Then it will boot up fine.     It might then boot fine for the rest of the day.  But then the next day (or after being shutdown for a while), it happens again so i have to remove memory card, put it back, etc.  What could be the problem here ?  I tried both memory slots.  So i don't think it's particular to one slot.

Im not native english speaker, sry if u cant understand some parts. Ill try my best to make my message clear so eventual will come easier.

This problem occurs for quite some time, its rather calm since few weeks when I downloaded shitload of new drivers and some other lenovo stuff but might be just coincedence. Since this issue doesnt want to go away itself I have to do something about it. I can send it to Lenovo for free service anymore so Id like to ask some experts if theres something I can do to fix this issue.

Some info:
- occurs usually while typing or other stuff, but few times my laptop literally went nuts and flashed black screens few times a sec, no matter if i touched it or not

- its not overheating, i bought cooling pad and it didnt help much

- can happen just after turning laptop on and not happen during 10h+ session

Thank you in advance.

Why did you install all of these other drivers? Did you already have performance problems or just create them?

Do you have a System Restore point still available before this problem began?

Hello, I installed HP Hotkey Support in order to change brightness and volume via the keyboard. The installer doesn't only contain the drivers, but also a on-screen-display feature indicating the current brightness/volume level. However, the OSD pops up with a considerable delay rendering it useless. Even without the delay I would prefer this thing gone. In the past, people have complained about this feature for various reasons and even though HP has managed to remove a popup notifying you every time you hit the caps lock button, they have failed to at least implement a button where you can specify whether you want the OSD to appear or not. I tried two solutions that seemed to have worked for some users a few years ago: 1. According to this thread, you can look for hpCaslNotification.exe  in C:/Program Files (x86)/Hewlett-Packard/Shared and rename it to e.g. hpCaslNotification.exe.bak. (Location in my case: C:/Program Files (x86)/Hewlett-Packard/Shared/Net4.5). This seems to be a solution to remove the brightness OSD, but when I change the volume with the keyboard, immediately the program C:/Program Files (x86)/HP/HP Hotkey Support/QLBController.exe crashes, after which none of the Hotkeys work anymore. 2. According to this other thread, and this support communication, you can change some registry settings in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Hewlett-Packard\HP HotKey Support, but in my case this key is not existent in this location and creati...

Hi,
I would like to disable the hotkeys for rotating screen (ctrl+alt+arrows) but I cannot.
In fact, I right clicked on desktop and from Graphic Options I chose Hot Keys and then ticked Disabled and this was fine for a few days.
But recently I see the hotkeys are still working although the Disabled choice is still selected in the mentioned menu. I suspect it might be because of one of the windows updates which is recently installed on my machine since the problem was created just after installing a set of updates.
Any ideas or people having the same problem?

A:Disabling Screen Rotation Hotkeys

I don't have those hotkeys, I would just un-install the software that enables these hotkeys, e.g. Intel Display Options, Nvidia Control Panel, ATI catalist software etc. You can have the driver installed and working without the software and configuration utilities installed!

This hotkey annoys me. A certain game I play involves using Ctrl, Alt, and the arrow keys. I constantly find myself accidentally pressing one of the screen rotation hotkeys, which interrupts my game and messes up my screen.

I've looked high and low for ways to disable this, and none have helped. There are no "graphics options" when I right click my desktop, and I can't find any Intel related graphics options. I don't have nVidia, either.
When I do 'msconfig' in Run, there is no Toshiba Rotation thingy to disable either.

I'm at my wits end.. Any help?

Hello, who can help me please? Whats the problem in my situation? See video at: https://youtu.be/cbisQJYSTzk From one day to another the notebook wont start(as always it was connected to electricity), no leds lit and there is a clicking sound if the battery is mounted. Without battery only power supply there isnt the sound but same problem. Electricity comes to the notebook ive tested. The jack cable is ok too. I have removed the battery and power and pressed the power button for 20 seconds. It has not brought success. Sorry for my english (im from germany). If it is the motherboard, is the repair easy? What needs to be changed? Where can I find cheap replacement? I ask for help please.. thanks..

A:G580 wont start, black screen and clicking sound

Hello,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo community!
 
If you know that the AC adapter is working properly and it outputs correct voltage but the laptop is still dead, most likely you have a power issue on the motherboard (or power board on some laptops) and it has to be replaced.
 
Before that, from your observation, it does look like there's a problem with the CPU since this is where the clicking noise is coming from. - Link to picture
 
In this case, if the machine's no longer under warranty, I would try and reseat the CPU, reapply a thermal paste and check for burnt areas on the motherboard. Otherwise, I would contact Lenovo and report the issue as you may need to send the unit for warranty work.
 
As for purchasing a new motherboard, I wouldn't do this yet unless it's recommended by someone who have access to low level motherboard repair tools. You may opt to send the unit to Lenovo (for out of warranty repair) or to a local computer repair center to verify the parts needed to restore the system back.

So I'm trying desperetly to help my friend fix his laptop, and I'm running into huge issues. My friend is running a Lenovo G580, and cannot connect to the Wi-Fi whatsoever. When you look down at the connections, it shows a wired connection symbol, and it says that there's no connections to be found. Now I know for a fact that this laptop can use wireless, it was used probably a week or two ago by my friends mother. Now, it can't seem to connect to any wireless networks. I've tried just about everything, turning off power saving, deleting the drivers (which we can't do, as the wireless drivers aren't appearing under network adapter), nothing has changed it. The laptop is running Windows 10, and when we go to Network Settings, there's no WiFi tab, there's Proxy, VPN, etc. I really need help with this.

Hello.

I have a Lenovo G580 with Windows 8. I have a weird problem with audio. If the default audio is set as internal speakers and I plug in my headphones the sound just keeps coming from the internal speakers. But if I set the headphones as default, I can switch between the speakers and headphones as I want and there is no problem if only I play music from my computer.

If I try to play something from my browser, however, the sound only comes from the internal speakers and connecting the headphones does nothing. Except (and this is where it gets weird) if I play something from my computer first using the headphones. Then I can play anything from the browser and hear it through the headphones as long as I don't plug them out. If I plug them out, the sound switches back to the internal speakers and trying to plug in the headphones again doesn't do anything. So I have to play something from my computer again with the headphones plugged in and then switch to my browser to again play everything through my headphones.

What's wrong with it? Any way to make it work as it should work?

I have read numerous complaints online about the Lenovo G570 laptop, apparently the hinges are prone to break a few months after use, and whatsmore the customer service teams are supposeduly refusing to acknowledge that the issue is covered under wear and tear.. I am wondering, has this problem been addressed with the release of the G580 laptop? I am no expert, but I assume that the model numbers represent incremental revisions. Does this typically mean component upgrades ie processor or also include fixes such as the hinges of the G570? Any response would be greatly appreciated as I am considering buying the G580 but need a strong quality laptop. I have heard that Lenovo are the best, my friend has one with a metal case and it seems strong, which models are known for their strength/durability? I also require a 15.6inch screen with i5, 4gb ram and 500gb hdd, preferably and usb 3.0.. Thanks,Richard.

A:Is hinge problem fixed in G580?

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
G580 is a good model and mostly all the quality measure have been verified before releasing it to the market
 
It is a normal trend when every any new mode is released all the parameters are verified by the R&D team
to give customers a WOW experience.
 
You can Google & go through few of the reviews for G580 to know more about the product and user experiences
 
 
 
 
Hope This Helps

Hi all,

I've recently had to reformat my laptop, and reinstall windows. All seems fine and well and the system is running pretty good. However, before formatting I was able to control the volume of my laptop (music, vids etc) using the keyboards 2nd function buttons i.e. pressing Fn and then F10, F11, or F12.

This doesn't seem to be working anymore.

Is this something I need to set up using windows? if so, how do i do it?

or is it more likely theres a fault somewhere?

Any help would be appreciated.

1. Boot into the BIOS by repeatedly tapping F2 on startup
 
2. In the BIOS, navigate to the Boot Tab and set UEFI to Disabled or Legacy then press F10 to save and exit. When
the computer reboots, check if you still get the errors and/or if you're able to boot into Windows.
 
3. If same problem, leave the changes that you made on Step 2 and attempt to re-install Windows via a Windows 8 recovery drive or OneKey Recovery button (note that this will wipe the computer to factory settings)

A:Screen brightness changes on its own?

Your computer's got an ambient light sensor to detect and automatically adjust screen brightness based on surrounding lighting. You'll have to disable the setting. Lenovo has their own energy management program that has a setting for it, but I'd imagine there's something in the Control Panel (maybe Power Options?) that allows you to turn the setting off.

I've noticed this happen twice. All of a sudden the screen flickered for just a second and the colors on the screen got brighter. By brighter I mean the the actual color changed (ex. my blue taskbar looked grayish). Both times my laptop was plugged in and the second time it happened I simply unplugged the computer and it changed back. After plugging the adapter back in the screen went to plugged in settings, but did not change the colors. The two times were separated by about two weeks.

I'm curious what might be causing this. It's probably just some little bug with a driver but I wanted to know what you guys thought.

Did any of you experienced something similar to this one? I checked other posts but most of them are related with not being able to change the brightness manually. Nothing like my problem.

I'm not sure if this is in the right forum. But in the last couple months, once in a blue moon I couldn't change my screen brightness, and now in the last couple days it's gotten a whole lot worse. Usually, I can't change brightness either via my 'fn -/+' hotkeys or via the actual brightness slider in the power panel. A full reboot or simple hibernation then reboot both let me change brightness again. But the last couple days, restarting the computer just puts the brightness on either fully dimmed or fully bright, and I still can't change it.

This is an HP G60 laptop, and I've had windows seven for a year on it. Like I said above it only started a couple months ago then got worse this week, and what I've found on google so far was all for newly-updated-to-seven issues. My drivers all seem to be up to date according to the windows update driver function... Can anyone help me?

Well I've had my laptop for almost 5 months now, however I did break it and got a screen replacement yesterday. Ever since then my screen seems dim. I've altered all the settings (as explained on other threads) but I still can't get to the centre of the problem. I had no trouble altering my brightness before my screen replacement so I do presume that the screen that the shop fitted wasn't the correct one and therefore a cheap option.

First of all: lowering brightness does not help, I tried it.

On my monitor it seems like everything is too bright, as in places that should be pitch black are a bit too light. For example: on my iPod, even with full brightness settings everything looks normal, but on my PC's monitor it just doesn't look right.

I calibrated color and setting gamma way low really helped, but my contrast is set to full, and my brightness is 75.

The strange thing: when I ran Crysis 1, it fixed the monitor color! So I know the darn thing is capable, I just don't know how to.

When I closed down Crysis it went back to normal.

A:Screen seems like it isn't dark enough(not brightness).

Hey, Guys.

I just yesterday finished my new computer (16Gb RAM, i5-4470k, GTX 770, Win 8.1, etc.) and I just today realized that I cannot change the screen brightness. The button is grayed out and says "Unavailable" which I know cannot be possible.

Now, i have done my research and people say that the fix is to update your drivers through the Device Manager, and I have tried that to no avail. I have tried all possible combinations of "Display Adapters" and "Monitors" drivers. None work. I have been restarting my computer after every change and I have no idea what there is left to do.

One thing that I might add is that a lot of people remedy this problem by reverting their Intel Integrated drives back to an older version, but I do not have an option to change it's drivers. It shows up nowhere in the Device manager.

My eyes are burning as I am typing this and I would even go for a third-party brightness program (if that even exists).

Thanks in Advance,
Cam

Hello Cam, and welcome to Eight Forums.

See if this may be able to help. If this is for a desktop PC, then you'll need to manually adjust the brightness level on the monitor itself.

Screen Brightness - Adjust in Windows 8

I was very grateful to forum members for their response to my first question here, and I'd like to ask another, on a different matter.

I run 8.1 on a Dell laptop. The screen is extremely bright and glaring, very hard on the eyes. When I turn down the brightness to an acceptable level, text loses definition. So I've tried new themes, both Windows and also Firefox add-ons. But then I find photographic images from news sites such as Yahoo disappear - not all of them, but some. Is there any way of preventing this?

Thanks for any help.

Windows default themes are the best

I would assume that the Fn keys relate to accessability options and they come from emachines. what driver upgrade have you done so far?

Hi. I have an HP EliteBook 2740p. There are icons on the F9 and F10 keys to adjust the screen brightness up or down. But when I hold the Fn key and press either F9 or F10, the screen brightness does not change. Is there some other setting somewhere that is preventing me from adjusting the screen brightness? Is there a driver that I need to download to activate these keys? Thank you

Hey guys,

I've tried a bunch of things, but the maximum brigntnes on the LCD screen of my E1505 is still very dim compared to a regular VGA LCD monitor. I tried changing things in the ATI Catalyst driver (and the UP/DOWN brightness funcion on the keyboard) but it's still very dim. I'm getting frustrated... any ideas guys?

Thanks,
Josh

I am using a desktop pc which does not have keyboard shortcuts for adjusting screen brightness (eg Fn+Fx). Is there a way I can create a shortcut for adjusting screen brightness (eg Cntrl+PgeUp)?

So I have read a lot of diffrent ways to solve this problem and I have searched for hours looking for a solution, yet nothing i've tried has worked for me. Whenever i press the fn key and try to adjust brightness then it does't, it does pop up the slider at the corner but it only moves upwards and downwards only one level yet the brightness wont change even that much. I only found one other person that had this problem and he got it solved, but he had an Asus laptop and he got it fixed with some Asus drivers but i have a Dell Vostro laptop. One of the biggest suggestions i have found that has worked for people has been to install some older display drivers, but that hasn't worked for me either.

Hi all,

My desktop machine is a Windows 7 32-bit. My problem is that when I read a PDF, the brightness of screen bothers me and I want to reduce it. My monitor is a Samsung LCD and only has a button. When I press it one time it turn the screen on/off and when I press and hold it, it just adjusts the wallpaper.

Is there a way to reduce it?

Hi, i've upgraded to windows 7 recently on my laptop and i think that it's really great compared to vista.

I have no problem with most of the things except for the ability to adjust brightness.
I could not change brightness the way i used to by using the FN + left/right key, nor the slider in power options menu.

The screen seems to be at the maximum brightness,which in turn causing my eye to hurt after some time of usage.

Any idea why? I need some help here.
Btw i am using Aspire 6935G.

it's likely you will need to install a utility for that control to work

Ok did some searching , goto the acer website\ support and pick > notebook > aspire > 6935G > then pick your Operating System and make sure you have all the drivers and applications they list

let us know how it goes ?

Hello, after updating to Anniversary built my screen brightness automatically brightens n lowers., despite brightness setting LOW.. One more issue with regards to Wi-Fi is tat it automatically getting ON without manually doing anything.. Please guide me

A:Screen brightness and Wifi

The brightness issue could be due to a faulty sensor, but it could also just be a result of the upgrade.
Try a few soft resets and if needed a hard reset.
Just adding this, sometimes it can take the phone (sensor) a second or two to "remember" which brightness setting was selected

I like my Toshiba Portege M300 because of compact size, etc. Recently I needed a new hard disk and my repairer loaded W7. I used XP previously and Toshiba do not recommend W7 for this notebook due to age. However, all is working well apart from the screen brightness adjustment. This was previously done by the Fn+F6/F7 hotkeys and there was a driver for this.

In W7 Screen Resolution there is supposed to be a brightness slider but this is not present on my W7 system (I gather that this not an uncommon feature)

How can I adjust the setting sin my notebook to fix a brightness as I am resigned to the fact that the old brightness adjustment will not apply now that I am using W7? Is there a change in the Bios that might help?

A:Screen Resolution Brightness.

I didn't think that the brightness settings of Fn+F6/F7 were affected by the OS but I've been wrong about stuff like that before

In the BIOS, there should be some kind of power or battery settings section that may have some LCD brightness settings that you can try tweaking.

alright, can someone tell me all the possible ways to adjust one's screen brightness within windows 8 on a laptop?

for some odd reason the laptop only adjusts the brightness when on the battery and it does that intelligent adjustment crap(tried to find a more polite word....failed).

A:lcd screen brightness on a laptop

WinKey+I and then in the lower right near the power button is the brightness adjustment.

Most laptops have function keys to adjust brightness as well, but you usually have to install a driver.
