Screen dimming


New Member
Hi there, I have changed all the settings under display to ensure that when my laptop is unplugged, the brightness is always on full, I can visibly see this in the settings. I have had this set-up on previous installations of Windows 7, but this time when I installed, it seems to ignore my settings and still dim no matter what I do! Is there a setting I'm missing that may be conflicting with this? I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium and have applied all the updates to date.

The only difference I can think of is that I am using the graphics drivers supplied by Windows update, whereas last time I had to use an old ATI Vista driver as it wasn't immediately supported (ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 (Int. Gfx.)).

Please let me know if you need my specs.

Many thanks!
