Could not change the brightness in my laptop

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

I have bought new HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC recently with Windows 7 pre-installed in it. I have upgraded to Windows 8.1 and it is working perfect.

But, I am having one issue. Initially I have set it to maximum brightness and now after upgrade to Windows 8.1 I couldn’t reduce the brightness. I tried several ways, but it is of no use.

What could be the problem here? Can somebody help me here to resolve this issue? Thanks a lot in advance, guys!

You can set your brightness using several ways or shortcut Keys.

1. Press both the Fn key and hot key at the same time.

2. Alternatively, press the Fn Lock key as well as hot key to use the hot key functions more easily.

You can see the picture below as well.  




Use the settings of Charms bar as shown below in the picture and set the brightness.
