    It works, but only with the Intel driver if you do a registry tweak I detailed here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/son...-drivers-bios-hack-people-19.html#post8292579

    In Speed Mode it's impossible. The ambient light sensor is handled by the Intel Graphics driver, and then passed on to the nVidia driver. Doesn't work with static graphics as the Intel driver isn't always loaded in the background as it is in hybrid mode.

    Do you think ComputerCowboy will be able to fix the brightness issues concerning the 301.42 drivers? They work so well, but this problem is quite problematic.

    Which of the latest drivers have no issues with the brightness setting?

    Why is that when I revert back to stamina mode (via restarting), I'm unable to generate 1080p display? Normally, switching to Stamina mode didn't take away such features. Does anyone know why?

    Did you reinstall the Intel HD graphics driver while in Stamina mode?

    No, I haven't. What should I do?

    Thanks, buddy.

    I picked the second one on the list (right under the Linux one). Anything special I should do prior or after the installation?

    Great! Which setup do you currently have going? Why so?

    I'm just using the default (ancient) Sony drivers. I don't game and I like to be able to switch graphics cards without restarting.
