Acer :: Brightness Controls No Longer Work On Timeline 1410 Upgraded To Windows 7 (32 Bit)

Jan 23, 2010

I used the upgrade kit from Acer to do a clean install of Windows 7 to my Timeline 1410. Everything works great and I love this laptop... except that the brightness controls (Fn+Left/Right Arrow) do not work. It's locked at highest brightness.

I am at my wit's end trying to figure this out.

I have installed all the Win 7 drivers from Acer's site, particularly

- Newest bios
- Launch Manager
- Chipset drivers
- Intel graphics drivers

When I first boot it up, the brightness controls work fine during the BIOS steps. But once Windows takes over, the controls no longer function. In the Windows Mobility Center, there is no brightness control panel. [FWIW, my Dell, which does have functional brightness control, doesn't show one either.] All other Fn-combinations, like volume control, work fine.

Sony :: SZ Brightness Controls In Windows 7?

Sep 3, 2009

I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 on my SZ5. Was surprised at how much works out of the box (fingerprint sensor, drivers etc) but the one glaring bug I found is that when I close the lid and the monitor shuts off, when I reopen it the brightness controls (FN+F5 and FN+F6) no longer work.

I also notice that the brightness controls in Windows' power options Control Panel disappears.

I need to restart my computer to resolve this (similar problems by other users: Sony Vaio SZ1XP - Windows 7 RC ). Does anyone have a solution? Thanks!

Sony :: FE31H Brightness Controls Not Working With Windows 7 X64

Jun 21, 2009

I've recently installed Windows 7 x64 build 7229 on my Vaio and I've managed to get everything working except for the screen brightness controls.

So far I've installed the x64 version of SFEP driver along with Vista versions of Sony utilities dll, sony shared library, sony event service and sony settings utility.

Installing the xp versions of those programs made the brightness control work fine, but on Windows 7, the screen brightness control pops up on the screen but the brightness doesn't change. Also I've read that I should be able to control the brightness in the Windows mobility manager, but there is nothing there about screen brightness.

The screen running at full brightness is hurting my eyes.

Sony :: Vaio SZ440ARGH! Speed Mode Brightness Controls In Windows 7 (x64)

Nov 9, 2009

just can't seem to get my Brightness controls to work in speed mode in windows 7.

I've tried 169.09, 180.70 and the most recent forceware drivers.

I've installed the registry file that was recommended in one thread.
I've tried all kinds of orders. Still, nothing.

I've currently installed (in this order)
SPEF
SonyPI
Shared Library
SonyUtils DLL
Event Service
The Registry Patch
NVIDIA Drivers

They work fine in STAMINA, but not in SPEED. I can't even access them through Windows Mobility Center or Power Options. I can change them a very small amount though the NVIDIA control panel through the "adjust color settings" tab. Otherwise, theres no mobility options in the NVIDIA panel.

Acer :: Aspire 1410 (11.6) Keyboard Identical To Timeline 1810

Jan 31, 2010

my spacebar snapped off after moderate use on a one month old Acer. Tech support is willing to receive and fix it, but I need to be using this laptop and cannot be laptop-less for 16 days.

So I wanted to buy my own keyboard and was looking at this:

[url]

Now the page up and down keys are in 2 lines instead of 1 and these keys look bigger, but is the dimension of the keyboard identical to 1410 before I buy it?

The other one I saw on these forums is here:

From the timeline Thread from pookguy

The 2nd keyboard looks identical but the auction doesn't mention 1410.

Acer :: Aspire 1410 / 1810T Fn + Brightness Key, Recognize The Problem

Sep 29, 2009

I know that the Fn + Brightness key issue on XP has been mentioned in other 1410/1810T threads, but I thought it might be nice to start a thread specific to the problem. After it's fixed we can add it with the other stickies.

I recently installed XP on a coworkers 1810T and because i'm interested in the machine myself i wanted to investigate the brightness issue and see if Acer is working on a fix, or even recognizes the problem.

My correspondence with Acer has been extremely frustrating and disappointing. I was considering using the 1810T laptops to replace our office's aging Lenovos but Acer's lack of support has made me majorly turned me off to that idea.

Here's my discussion with Acer, reverse chronological order (start at the bottom):............................................

Acer :: Brightness - With Timeline 4810TZ

May 14, 2010

When I unplug (go to battery power), the green battery-light-led goes on and overrides the brightness-settings I do with Windows 7. This means whenever I plug-in or plug-out the brigthness gets reset to some value that Acer thinks is 'right' for me. I would like to decide myself what is right for me, but can't find out how.

What makes it worse is that at first it works like:

Unplugged: 30% brightness
Plugged-in: 40% brightness

Which is reasonable. However, after pluggin-in/out a few times, it goes all screwy. For example: unplugged becomes 50%, plugged-in becomes 10%, or some other seemingly random non-sense-making values. So, I would like to get rid of this.

Pressing the green led when it's on makes it go off and seems to give brightness-control back to windows-settings. However, as soon as pluggin-in and plugging-out again, the green led comes on again. Argh.

I read some other threads about similar issues, but people would always have Acer ePower Management or something installed. I do not. This happens on a fresh clean install of Windows 7. Bios is up-to-date. Happens in every power mode (saver/balanced/performance).................

Acer :: Timeline Screen Brightness Goes Up And Down

Aug 8, 2009

i just installed Win 7 RC 64bit.

now, after every drivers/applications installed, i notice screen brightness goes up and down by itself, (it dims then goes back to bright).

This only happens when Power Saver button is pressed (lit green).
It did not do this with Win 7 32bit.

i assume, it is power saving feature interfering with win 7's power scheme.
Kinda cool.. but just wanted to know anyone else is having this *cool* trick..

Acer :: Timeline 3810TZ Brightness Changes Automatically

Jun 24, 2009

I bought a 3810TZ with SU2700, but I have noticed that when on battery power and brightness set to low, the brightness of the screen would change automatically by itself according to the background. for example, the screen would darken if you have something dark open on the screen, and the screen would become brighter if you have a web page that's mainly white. Is this a feature in windows vista, or is the LCD screen defective?

Dell :: M1530 XPS Brightness Controls

Sep 7, 2009

I recently replaced the inverter in my Dell Xps M1530 laptop. I bought the inverter off ebay, and the listing said it was compatible for my laptop.
My problem is,

that since I replaced the inverter (screen looks great by the way), the brightness controls no longer do anything. The laptop is on constant highest brightness. If I use the Fn Up and Down arrows,

the brightness bar comes up on the bottom right of the screen and it actually moves left and right in line with what I am telling it to do, but the screen brightness doesn't change! I have tried going in to the power settings and display settings

Sony :: FZ190 Brightness Controls Acting Up

Dec 5, 2009

I just tonight noticed that the F5/F6 keys do not work after the machine wakes from sleep. It works fine after I reboot. But after sleep the OSD will show up when I hit F5 or F6. The display gauge will move to the left TWO positions when I hit F5 but only once. If I hit F5 again, nothing happens. If I hit F6 it moves to the right TWO positions again only one time. In both cases there is NO change to brightness.

I tried to log off and back on to see if it has any effect. It did not. I'll reboot now and the hibernate to see if the problem recurs coming out of hibernation.

I am running Win7 ultimate 32 bit.

UPDATE: Well this is strange. I rebooted and the F5/F6 keys worked fine of course. I hibernated and then came back out and they still worked fine. I logged off and back on and again they were fine. So this seems to be ONLY a sleep issue.

If any of you have an FZ model running Win7 32 bit. Can you try this and report your findings?

Dell :: M4400Just Upgraded From 4GB To 8GB RAM, Should It Take Much Longer To Boot?

Just upgraded the RAM in my new (to me) M4400 from 4GB to 8GB.

I notice it takes MUCH longer than it used to for the BIOS screen to finish before Windows can start to boot.

Once the BIOS screen is finished, everything is normal and Windows runs fine.

Is this normal?

Dell :: Brightness Controls Reversed After Replacing LCD Screen

Apr 16, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 9300 and the screen was going on it so I bought a replacement screen off of eBay. It didn't come with an inverter so I used the existing one.

The new display works great, but now the brightness settings are reversed. Turning up the brightness in the BIOS makes the screen dimmer and vice-versa.

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: L520 Brightness Controls Not Working?

Aug 26, 2013

I have a thinkpad l520 5016-c74 running windows 7 64bit and kubuntu 13.04.
 
When i try to adlust the brightness in kubuntu, the jotkeys work just fine.

On the other hand, in windows, i can adjust the brightness from the windows menu, but every time i hit Fn+home or delete (this is the hotkey on my machine) the brightness, regardless of where it is set, drops to 7 (from a scale of 1-15), and cannot be readjusted, If i hit again Fn+Home or Delete, it does this flash, like it's trying to change the brightness, but something holds it in 7. I can always change it from the windows menu. But again the same thing, hotkey and back to 7.

HP Pavilion Dm4 Display :: Brightness Controls Stopped Working

The brightness control keys (f2 & f3) on my pavilion dm4 stopped working all of a sudden. I'm operating windows 7 64bit. I've tried reverting to previous system restore points. I've also installed the BIOS, Intel chipset, and graphics drivers. All the other function keys are working properly, just can't change the brightness. Right now it's stuck on the brightest setting. I'm getting terrible eye strain from the screen.
