    Hi John/Dannemand

    Is it possible for you to update the first page of the "2013 Series 7 chronos / Ativ Book 8 15" owner's lounge (NP770Z5E / NP780Z5E / NP870Z5E / NP880Z5E) with the brightness fix or insert it into this sticky please?

    Option 1)

    You can try restoring functionality by going to Device Manager -> Display Adapters -> Intel HD 4000. You need to select the second update option (Search your computer...) and then Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer. There you choose Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and you should get your brightness back


    Option 2 (an even better fix if above method doesn't work. Also, Microsoft's Basic Display Adapter driver limits some graphic card's functionalities.
    Below you can follow the steps to solve brightness problems when Intel's HD 4000 drivers get updated.)

    1) Backup your registry if you wish!
    2) Open regedit.exe with admin rights in Run Command (search toolbar in win10)
    3) Find value [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0001] "FeatureTestControl"= ''Edit DWORD 32bit'' = f000
    4) Change that value to f008
    5) Restart your laptop and option to change brightness should be fully working.

    I think this would be very helpful. This has been taken from page 604.
