So I just installed windows 8 on my mac (osx Lion, late 2011 mbp) via bootcamp, and I have all of the drivers installed. However, my maximum brightness seems to be capped by Windows, because it is not letting me get anywhere near my monite's maximum brightness. I tried updating my drivers but no luck. Any ideas?
This is an issue with adaptive brightness. You can disable it by following these instructions: http://www.howtogeek.com/107173/disable-windows-8s-adaptive-brightness-to-fix-dark-screen-problems/
