Windows 7: Power Option Sudden problem..

Power Option Sudden problem..

Hello,
I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on my HP 6910p Laptop. The power plan options were working absolutely fine, but suddenly it has started to act weird. When I used to select a power option For instance , when I click High Performance: The brightness used to be full (As I Configured this plan to have max screen brightness) and when I used to switch to Power Save: The brightness used to be lowest (As I configured this plan to have lowest screen brightness)
However, now, when I switch between the plans, nothing happens. For instance, if I click high performance, the brightness remains the same as clicking the power save plan. Also, If I choose High Performance power plan and lower its brightness, and then click on power save the brightness remains same as the high performance. So, Apparently, there is no change.
Can anyone suggest me what to do?
I have also Battery-Care software installed if that helps.
Thanks.
