I recently installed Windows 8 upgrade on my Sony Vaio S113 laptop, not happy!!! No problems
before with Windows 7. but now the screen brightness control is inoperative. Help please or I will revert to 7
Welcome to Microsoft communities.
As I understand that you are not able to adjust screen brightness Windows 8.
1. Did you make any recent changes prior to the issue?
2. Do you get any error message/code?
3. Are you specifying to the monitor settings or the settings in Windows 8
Method 1: Enable adaptive brightness
Method 2: Download and install the latest drivers/ utility software’s from the manufacturer’s website.
If the drivers are not available for Windows 8, download for Windows 7 from your manufacturer’s website
and install in Windows 7 compatibility mode:
a) Right-click on the driver and click on ‘properties’.
b) Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 7 operating system from the drop down.
c) Click on ‘Apply’ and click ‘OK’ and run the file to install it.
Please post back if you are still experiencing the issue. I will be glad to provide you with additional options available that you can utilize to get this issue resolved.
Method 3: Run SFC scan
This will check for any integrity violations. Restart your system
