Windows 7: Power options page doesn't display a "dim the display"

Power options page doesn't display a "dim the display"

Hi, I just installed windows 7 on my laptop and the power options page doesn't display a "dim the display" option, nor do the keyboard commands to dim the display do anything. Is there a way to fix this?

I am running a Lenovo G530 machine and there does not seem to be driver support for windows 7 on their support page. However I downloaded the mobile Intel 45 chipset graphics driver for windows 7 and I downloaded the newest bios update; nether seemed to solve the problem.

Thanks,
Marc

Hi Cramis1! Welcome to SevenForums! I found some Energy Management drivers. Seeing as I don't know whether or not your running 32 or 64-bit, here are the links for both.
