HP Envy display stays dimmed after waking from sleep mode
OK w7, you added that thanks.
well , dim features are complex on laptops
I bet it does not stay dim in BIOS screens
the F1 info screen, so...
but does only in windows running, right?
The PC autodims the screen for 2 reasons (by design)
a battery weak. or setup to run dim when on battery only mode, in windows power settings,
reason 2, the screen camera is used to see when the room is dark, if yes, it dims. this to is a a setting in power settings of windows.
click start, click control panel,click power icon.
click advanced, see "power" settings
you will discover many things are (on battery do X)
all laptops with windows, set it as you want.
also laptops dim if you move the pc from say bright window open (sun filled room)
to a dark room it is a feature on vast laptops
to save battery power, and also dims if the battery is weak or bad. all do that.
and last reload the drivers on you PC
go to hp, click support, then go to your PC find the drivers and load them for Windows 7, only at HP, nowhere else. ok?
1: dark room PC dims. (auto room dim can be turned off)
2: battery dead, or bad or weak, it dims . on purpose
3: bad w7 drives or screen Grapics chip GPU.
HP has em'
4: corrupted OS, win7 is infected. f11 reload time.
5: screen has CCLF black lamps as all do 2009 and older and all are dim now or dead. or purely random and ddeath soon for the CCLF tubes.
2012 PC this is and is LED so not CCFL but we do always look 2010 and back (age)
