Recently when playing with LogMeIn’s remote desktop service, I installed a display driver for them which was supposed to shield my screen from being viewed while being viewed remotely. Little did I know that there was a side effect to this. The side effect was that the brightness display stopped working. This meant that my laptop’s monitor was always at 100% brightness.
To remove this, I just had to uninstall the driver (after about an hour of searching the internet about what could be causing it). The steps to remove:
- Open “Device Manager”
- Open “Display Adapters”
- Right click on “LogMeIn.com Mirror Driver”
- Click Uninstall
- Restart computer
After that, I was able to change the brightness of my screen.
Apparently I’m not the only person who experienced this issue. Click the link below for a forum post on it.
