    Hello everyone!

    Just signed up to this forum because I bought an Aero 15-X9 for a very reasonable price last week.

    The first thing I did was to wipe the SSD and install a fresh clean Win 10 Pro.

    So far so good, I quite like the Aero but there is one issue left:

    Next to the webcam is the ambient light sensor I guess, but it‘s not working at all. No adaptive brightness settings in the ControlCenter, the display settings or the power plan. No sensor listed in the device manager and I could not find a hint about dedicated drivers for it anywhere.

    All software and firmware is up-to-date ... so what‘s wrong there.

    For the X8 they advertised the sensor as an invention - is it still present in the X9 or is it just an empty hole?

    Any help is much appreciated!
