As you can see the brightness toggle is missing and the keyboard key for that doesn't work as well, I tried to reinstall the driver from device manager, didn't work. The laptop is hp 2000. It disappeared 2 days ago, I have no idea why.


The best I can find to offer you, is the brightness slider in Power Options. You can find in one of two ways:

  • Right-clicking the Start Menu button, and it will be the third option.
  • Type Power Options into the Cortana Menu.

At the bottom, you will see a slider for screen brightness.

I tried to find a way to repair the missing tile for brightness, but all the guides I come across state a method you've tried.

Hope this helps.

  • the slider is not there, i can see it on my new hp laptop but not on the laptop in question. not even in conrol panel! – Lynob Sep 14 '16 at 18:54
  • You said that the slider disappeared two days ago. Was there any event you noticed two days ago? An update was installed, a new program or driver, something changed the registry? – Service Manager Sep 14 '16 at 19:39
  • It's not my laptop. I'm trying to fix it, the guy said he didn't notice anything – Lynob Sep 14 '16 at 19:57
  • the issue still exists but since there seem to be no solution, I'll tell him to format the pc and I'll accept your answer to close the topic – Lynob Sep 28 '16 at 16:50
  • @Lynob Sorry we couldn't find a proper solution. – Service Manager Sep 30 '16 at 13:46
