Windows 7: Dell Driver Download Problem

Windows 7 64 bit
 
 

Alright, I installed it and rebooted. But, I don't see any difference. And, the stupid brightness and contrast are still returning to the default whenever they feel like it. What's supposed to be different? How do I access the new program to adjust my settings? Same as before, by right clicking on the desktop and going to display?

Is your laptop plugged in or on batteries when the brightness changes? It's probably a power saving setting.

No, it does it while it's plugged in, too. I thought of that. I've tried changing the various power management settings. I've tried everything I can think of. Someone suggested I download the latest drivers, and that might help. So far it hasn't changed a thing.
