Alright, this is going to sound very noobish, but I can't figure it out....
I have a compaq 8710w notebook, and I can't get the brightness to to adjust correctly. I just reinstalled Vista Ultimate, and the fn + f10 key's dont do it (yes, it's the right graphic for increase brightness)
I went into the bios and disabled the light sensor (does an auto-dim in low-light areas) but I still can't get the function keys to work.
Now, I know that the FN key works because fn + f3 puts my computer to sleep, it's the brightness settings that aren't working. And yes, in my powerscheme the brightness is cranked up to 100%
Any ideas or thoughts on this bizarre situation?
