Windows 7: Cant change laptop brightness without reboot

Cant change laptop brightness without reboot

Id like to first start off by saying I apologize if this is in the wrong thread. I know a bit about computers but not a lot so I wasnt sure what thread would be best for a brightness problem.

Secondly, I know my laptop is old. I'd love to get a new one but thats not an option.

So essentially ive been this having this problem for a good long while. It just randomly acts up and then fixes when I restart my computer. I wont be able to change my brightness AT ALL.
FN keys dont work. The brightness slider (does show up) doesnt work, and trying to change from high performace to balanced doesnt work either (and yes the sliders are different in the 2 settings).

Ive looked everywhere for a solution to this problem and just cant find a thing. Either people have a different brightness problem or a different solution which doesnt work for me.

So any help would be greatly apperciated. Im hoping that since Ive come across so many other brightness problems on my search maybe someone will be able to help me with mine.
Thank you.
