Brightness of the TFT bugs out.

Postby TheAvatar » Tue May 05, 2009 5:34 pm

This is probably a question aimed for the Linux community over all, not Mint specific. My brightness settings on my IBM X40 laptop acts weird. I can lower the brightness as low as it gets totaly black but i can't get back to normal/full brightness it just gets barely visible, enough to reboot the computer. Somehow i wonder if there might be a way to raise the brightness level by force. The little OSD that appears when i change the brightness must get the information from somewhere - but where is that?

Best Regards, The Avatar.

Not much help but changing brightness seems to be a common problem on this model
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
