I upgraded to Windows 8, and now I can't change the screen brightness. The F1/F2 keys do alter the brightness meter in the Boot Camp Control Panel, but this level has no effect on the actual brightness of the screen.

Please reopen this. It's quite clear that I want a fix for my laptop's brighness buttons to work again. – mcandre Nov 15 '12 at 18:52
can't reopen but the latest BootCamp drivers for 8.1 have fixed this issue on one of my setups – prusswan Aug 25 '15 at 8:13

Sounds like a BootCamp driver issue, you will have to wait until Apple updates their BootCamp drivers to support Windows 8.
