    screen and navigate to "Settings>>Change PC Settings>>General".Now tap/click on option "Get Started" .You will find this option under "Refresh your PC without affecting your files".Simply follow the on-screen instructions and you are done. If it doesn't fix your issue, Try to uninstall and reinstall the latest version of graphics driver. To uninstall the driver, Press "Windows key+X" and choose "Device Manager". Expand the Display Adapter and right click on the desired driver and choose "Uninstall".

    dear guest,
    >if your device is a desktop with a screen having settings keys of its own, then check if the hardware settings are ok.
    >if it is a laptop then try to adjust the settings with function key ans the brightness controler keys.
    >go to "Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options" and try to change the brightness.you can find it at the bottom of that widow.
    >check if the display driver is compatible with Windows 8, if not then download a compatible version of the driver and install it.
    >If still problem continues then there is some error in the hardware. have it checked up in a service center.

    Good luck...

    There are feature control available from several places in a computer.

    The monitor has panel mounted buttons which can set brightness of the display.
    There is an icon on the Taskbar which can control the graphics properties.
    Control Panel can provide you the display control options too.

    If monitor mounted buttons did not offer the control, the monitor should be checked for hardware problems .
    If the other two controls fail you, it is most probably due to the problem of under performing driver.

    Click START--CONTROL PANEL--SYSTEM AND SECURITY--DEVICE MANAGER--DISPLAY--DRIVER--UNINSTALL,and remove the driver, then click UPDATE DRIVER, and follow the guidence to install latest generic or custom driver from Microsoft or Other Specic Source.

    This will solve the issue.

    Hi..............,

    Go to the desktop view in the system.

    Suggestions ---->
    6039d1335931165-screen-brightness-adjust-windows-8-charm-1.jpg
    * Brightness can be viewed directly from the desktop view.
    * You can see the icons of short cuts in the bottom.

    --> You can also see the battery option there on desktop.
    --> Simply select that and go to the brightness option.
    --> Follow as guided in the pic in proper way.

    Re: Brightness Settings not working in windows 8. How to fix it?

    Hello there !!!

    since your brightness remains stable although after increasing it from the
    control panel or from the function key.

    than it means that the driver called utility driver is absent in your system or
    it has not been installed in your system.

    so what you need to do is to install the utility driver in your system which is
    compatible to your operating system and the the system too.

    you can search it from the official website of your laptop company.
    so try installing it.
    then your brightness feature will work.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
