Windows 7 laptop brightness doesn’t change

Filed under: Microsoft Windows — Andrew @ 11:04 pm

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:

  1. Open “Device Manager”
  2. Open “Display Adapters”
  3. Right click on “LogMeIn.com Mirror Driver”
  4. Click Uninstall
  5. 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.
