Customer Question
Hi! I accidentally Pushed...

Hi! I accidentally Pushed F12 again. I took your laptop to a local computer shop and pd to have it repaired last time. If there is a permanent fix for the brightness, please send it to me. I am not a computer wiz. I would appreciate a quick fix that I will understand. Also, shouldn't my keys be lit all of the time when I'm on? I have to keep a light on over my shoulder at night now. TY

F12 should increase brightness on the laptop, is that what is happening?

Trying to correct your problem in Brightness settings does nothing. This is an inherent problem in the computer, and I want a permanent fix.
Tech Support Specialist: Samuel NetEngineer, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 19 days ago

I believe a driver update will permanently fix the issue, one moment while I type out the steps.

I believe I downloaded Windows 10 yesterday. The ad kept popping up and I finally gave in, but I don't know how to ck if it did download.
Tech Support Specialist: Samuel NetEngineer, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 19 days ago

Samuel. If this was a problem that I did I would pay the $39. This problem came .inside the ideapad.

I dont think the brightness problem is caused by users.I've set brightness to the maximum, but it's still dark and murky. And I showed the screen to some other people. they all agreed it is dark. So I am thinking it has to be something wrong with screen, a hardware. I went online, I found that a lot of users share this very same problem. I am wondering if I can send the machine back to the manufacturer and get it fixed for free.
Tech Support Specialist: Samuel NetEngineer, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 19 days ago

Perhaps. You would have to contact Lenovo customer support to check

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
