Hey, believe me, you are not the last one who have this problem. I also had this problem same as you last week, and I google an instruction from the Internet, tells me open Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Power Options>Change plan settings. This worked for me well. Don't know whether it works for you or not. But you can have a try. Good luck! By the way, here's what this page shows me:

Your laptop button functionality will not work until you install the drivers necessary. Check online for the drivers and make sure that all of your drivers are installed in device manager. To get to device manager, right click computer and click manage. In the sidebar, go to device manager. I'm not quite sure if windows 8 has a software slider... it should be under power options where you can adjust the screen brightness to save battery. Good luck

How to reduce brightness of dell vostro 1015

Saddam Al-Nasser wants more answers to this question
Let me guess it is too bright in a dark room?
dell vostro 1015
NO OS stated, at all. by OP or Hyjackers.
the dell site has xp vista and w7 driver only for this old PC
if the device manager shows, keyboard drivers missing then try the one below marked,
Mouse, Keyboard & Input Devices 07 Jul 2012

below covers both types of personal computers.

and you cant find the 2 key below>?

oops dell lost the users manual after 9 long years, sadly
see the 2 keys below, blue, sun Icons
you push Fn blue key left side of keyboard
then push SUN key down. lower red arrow below.
if this fails to lower the backlamps
that means the drivers are missing. xp,.vista,w7 are all dell supports. (NO OS stated by OP nor hyjackers. as is par here)
Fn+down-arrow : key. if dead driver is wrong.!!!

If you installed on the primary drive, not a dual-boot to a separate partition, or booted from a Virtual Box software, you will need a Windows 7 installation DVD/Disk and do a re-install of Windows 7 . Select the primary Drive/partition ,Format HDD, follow on-screen instructions.

I just purchased an siig soundwave pci and am getting "don't support this platform - o" when installing the driver via CD. I have windows 8 Pro. What is causing this problem?

Sounds like the driver software is not compatible with Windows 8. Look on packaging for requirements, or readme files on disc. You could also check on their web site for updated drivers.

I would like to reduce brightness on my ASUS VH242H

Actually, the problem isn't with the drivers. Right click on the battery icon in your system tray. Select "Power Options" (NOT Power4Gear eXtreme). On the right panel, select "Adjust the display brightness." Then, select "Change advanced power settings." Scroll down and open up the "Display" box. The options that are affecting your screen brightness on battery are "Allow SmartDimmer to reduce my brightness after," "Have SmartDimmer reduce my brightness by," and "SmartDimmer full-screen video mode." Playing with the percentages in these boxes will affect how your screen brightness adjusts itself. To get my screen to stop re-brightening itself, I changed "Allow SmartDimmer to reduce my brightness after/ On Battery:" to 100%. I then changed "Have SmartDimmer reduce my brightness by/ On battery:" to 0%. Finally, I set "SmartDimmer full-screen video mode/ On battery:" to Maximum Power Saving. This should solve your screen-rebrightening problems even with the 163.44 drivers (I use those too). Please Rate.
Thanks, Anand Fixya

Screen Brightness

windows 8 to 10 have the brightness control in the action center or power settings or look in the charms bar if your using windows 8 or 8.1 (note: if brightness doesnt change it maybe due to the OS not knowing how to change the brightness let me know if that ends up being the case)
