Steerpike Posted March 16 Share Posted March 16 Bit of a long shot here, but I know @John Ratsey has this same laptop so maybe he has an idea. Or maybe the answer is more generic and others can help. I have a Samsung NP930X5J from circa 2014 that I'm still using for some old tasks. Engineering marvel, still runs beautifully, but - it's now heavy compared to modern laptops. When in Windows, I can brighten/darken the screen by using the proprietary Fn+F2, Fn+F3 keys or by going to the standard windows settings areas and adjusting the sliders. But right now I'm doing some imaging tasks that require me to boot into a standalone WinPE environment. The screen is on what must be MAXIMUM brightness and I can't find a way to darken it! To make matters worse, the program I'm using is Macrium Reflect, and the background is pure white! I'm literally having to wear sunglasses to work with it. The Fn+F2/3 buttons don't work, of course, and there's no 'settings' environment to mess with. I looked in the BIOS and don't see any screen brightness controls. There is a setting labeled 'BIOS adaptive brightness' (text says "In case of Enabled, LCD is dimmed under dark environment during the BIOS POST time") but enabling/disabling it makes no difference. At other times, I've noticed the BIOS screen was incredibly dark, and I recall not being able to adjust it. So, is there a generalized way to handle screen brightness on laptops outside of windows?
