    Hola Win7 world!

    For some reason, I have a problem with my computer's display brightness. Sometimes whenever I start up the computer, or change to another's profile (either the admin who is me or the other two normal users I have), the brightness goes a little dimmer. All three of us are used to one brightness, so our settings must be the same. It still happens and I don't know how to stop this problem permanently, as I need to go Control Panel -> Display -> Calibrate Color, which will fix the problem, but it will fix it temporary. I want it fixed, forever, cause that calibrate color solution is a time eater for us.

    Here are my specs:
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
    Processor: Intel® Celeron ® D CPU 3.20GHz
    CPU: Intel Celeron 352
    Ram: 2048MBs
    Motherboard: FOXCONN G41MD
    Graphics Card: Intel® G41 Express Chipset Rev. 3


    How do I fix this brightness problem forever? Thanks in advance

    Hello and welcome

    Have you set the brightness in the control panel area? Also is it a laptop? Brightness changes and depending on the power options set,

    What do you mean? I know that the brightness could be changed via the monitor. And it's a desktop, not a laptop. So how do I set a permanent brightness for this desktop, or how to prevent this problem from happening again?

    There were no adjustable brightness bars, but I have changed my screen blacking out and sleeping thing, finally! It did sleep while I was download Portal before : (

    I'll reply here if I experience that same brightness changing problem again, but thanks for introducing me to this option : )

    Have you tried uninstalling the graphics driver, rebooting, running Ccleaner and then reinstalling with the lastest available from Intel.

    Nope, but I'll try when I see this problem again. Thanks for a solution, lol

    kaos, do you mean how to change whether the monitor blacks out after a set period or not? This accessed by the power plans, of course. And I have to tell you, you must have your control panel display the options in "categories", as the small icons didn't lead to something called "System and Security".
