How to disable the light sensor on a Vaio laptop
I recently purchased a Sony Vaio S 15-inch laptop running Windows 8. For some reason, I cannot manually adjust the screen brightness, it always goes down to a minimal setting because of the auto brightness detection. If I change the screen brightness manually, it will stay that way for 3-5 seconds and then go back down to the very dark setting.
I saw a post (Sony VAIO dim screen on Windows 8) and this is exactly what is happening, but those drivers (specifically the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD Driver Update) will not run on my system.
Has anyone been able to find the right drivers or solve this issue?
