Windows 7: Can't adjust screen brightness??

Can't adjust screen brightness??

I'm not sure if this is in the right forum. But in the last couple months, once in a blue moon I couldn't change my screen brightness, and now in the last couple days it's gotten a whole lot worse. Usually, I can't change brightness either via my 'fn -/+' hotkeys or via the actual brightness slider in the power panel. A full reboot or simple hibernation then reboot both let me change brightness again. But the last couple days, restarting the computer just puts the brightness on either fully dimmed or fully bright, and I still can't change it.

This is an HP G60 laptop, and I've had windows seven for a year on it. Like I said above it only started a couple months ago then got worse this week, and what I've found on google so far was all for newly-updated-to-seven issues. My drivers all seem to be up to date according to the windows update driver function... Can anyone help me?

since a reboot fixes it (at least temp.) it is probably not hardware but software. Do you have a backup from before the problem started getting worse?

Do you have the win 7 dvd to do a repair install?

Hi, welcome to the forums

What revision is your laptop? This info will be on the bottom of the laptop and they range from the G60-100 CTO to G60-146CA.

For a complete list, including downloads go to
HP G60-100 Notebook PC series*-* Download drivers and software - specify product name - HP Business Support Center

Select the laptop you have and select to download Keyboard drivers then 'HP Quick Launch' driver.

Hope it helps

Just right click on my computer go to manage, then device manager, after that double click on monitors, finally right click on generic pnp monitor and click on uninstall, you have to check on the blank before clicking on ok...
