Does anyone know what controls the display brightness? I have installed the Asus ATK utility for Windows 8, but it doesn't seem to work. The hot key combo does invoke the brightness setting, and the slider moves as I press the keys, but there is no effect to the brightness on the display.

Any ideas?

Laptop is a G73JH

I don't see W8 compatible drivers for your G73JH. Do a test for me. Press the Windows key + X to bring up the Windows Mobility Center. Move the slider for the Display and see if the brightness changes.

Display brightness does not change. OH, BTW - This is the Windows 8 compatble ATK driver:

According to the links provided in this post: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?29124-G73JH-Clean-Windows8-Pro-Install-w-Drivers&country=&status=, more than half the utilities (not drivers) are specifically WIndows 8 compatible. The original poster was able to do a clean WIndows 8 install with all functions working fine.

So there must be a solution to my screen brightness issue.

Those ATK dont work for me either. Ive tried a couple but my brightness is totaly out of control. If I want to change it I need to reboot PC in order to take effect. Anyone know a fix? Tks

SOLUTION:
Hey i FOUND a BRIGTNESS CONTROL SOLUTION!!!! WORKS FOR ME . (ATI HD 5870)
In this model G73jh after clean install of WIN 8 there is standard video DRIVER and the brightness control work's, but after install AMD CCC driver it stop working, becouse AMD driver taken control of brigtness control.
SOLUTION IS HERE: DISABLE AMD Brigtness control https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9MUsPAEohk
