Tad bit of summary:
So I have had the "pleasure" of owning an HP laptop for a few years now. Since HP does not update their drivers for a long time I was stuck with AMD 8.3 drivers. I recently updated to 13.3 in a different way (as HP was not letting me update via AMD). Everything went fine, except the backlight to my display is very dim/not on at all, and the options in the control panel will not raise or lower my brightness.
Is there anyway I can manually with some other application/script control my backlight brightness other than going back to 8.3(which is not in the question seeing as though most modern apps crash your computer with 8.3)
