Brightness dimming after laptop lid is closed for a while


Recommended Posts

My laptop comes with Windows 8 and on Windows 8 no matter what driver I used, I don't have the below mentioned problem


If I install Windows 7 with all the drivers, after closing the lid and leaving the laptop for a while, when I open the LID again, the brightness is down to 50% and I have to manually raise it up.


I have ensured that in the power plan settings no dimming is enabled after X amount of minutes but this problem is still there and is annoying me.


Any solution to solve this?


PS: I also did try changing the Desktop color to nVIDIA settings but no luck

Why not use Windows 8 instead? Regardless of compatibility with Windows 7, your machine was meant to run Windows 8, and if you do have issues with Modern UI (I do) then there is 3rd party software that can revert all unwanted changes.

You do have very nice specs on that machine, and it would be a shame if you face issues that can be avoided. Also, do check ASUS' site for BIOS update release notes to see if there is any mention to that specific bug.
