View Full Version : G771JM - weird issue with adaptative brightness

01-20-2015, 11:04 AM
Adaptative brightness is driving me nuts, really. I've disabled the setting in Windows 8.1's power management, disable the sensor service... The works. No go.

Also - and this is the weird bit - the issue only happens when the laptop is plugged in; everything's fine when running on battery.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Change the "Adaptive brightness" for each power plan to "Off" and then restart your laptop. This works fine for me.

"Adaptive brightness" option can be found in each power plan settings in the "Display" section.

Thanks for the reply, but I already did that, and it didn't work.

Also: the issue also goes away when I set the brightness to maximum or minimum.. A bit puzzling, no?

I stand corrected; I had shut down the laptop and then turned it on again after applying the settings in the power plan.
It *should* be the same as restarting, but I guess not. Actually restarting the computer seems to have solved the issue.
