I have an Asus laptop with Windows 8 and clicking Fn+F5 / Fn+F6 keys (for brightness) doesn't work. In fact, they work, but they can increase/decrease the brightness only one time. What I mean is that after pressing Fn+F5 once, nothing happens if I try to press Fn+F5 again, before I press Fn+F6.

This only happens after logging in. At the login screen and during Windows boot I can adjust the brightness as I want, but after login I can't.

I installed the latest ATK driver and NVIDIA graphics driver for Windows 8, and I think that my problem is related to conflict with drivers. I tried to reinstall/delete some drivers, but it didn't help.
How can I detect where is the problem?

You could try uninstalling the ATK driver. –  Erik Funkenbusch Nov 11 '12 at 7:58
    
This is probably a driver issue. –  KronoS Nov 11 '12 at 15:05

If keys works before logon, thought you need to check programs which starts after logon. Disable them one-by-one and logoff/logon?

You may disable startup programs in Task manager on "Start-up" page.

Already did. I tried to disable all programms at startup, but it didn't help. –  Airat Shigapov Nov 10 '12 at 22:49
    
This might be a driver issue. Make sure you have all the proper drivers for your system's motherboard/chipset installed. –  Darth Android Nov 10 '12 at 23:53
