I have a Radeon HD 6990m and since upgrading to Windows 8 brightness control has no affect. That's using the charms, function keys and power options. My display is stuck permanently at 100% brightness.

Also, if my battery runs low and the display dims, there's no way to increase brightness after connecting it to the mains. I have to do a full shutdown (not restart) after which brightness is stuck at 100% again.

It's been this way with the last couple of Beta releases. I'm currently on 12.11 Beta 11. Can we get this major issue fixed please? 100% brightness is hard on the eyes.

AMD Catalyst Mobility is a notebook reference graphics driver with limited support for system vendor specific features. When used with Windows Vista or Windows 7, the user experience may be limited or compromised.

The Installation Verification Software is designed to prevent driver download on certain notebook products. This is to protect against the installing of drivers that may disable features or functionality provided by the system manufacturer. When used with Windows Vista or Windows 7, the user experience may be limited or compromised. In such a situation, it is recommended to revert back to the driver provided by your system vendor for your specific platform.

My shittery vendor is HP. It won't release any new driver for my 2010 year manufactured laptop.

So what to do?
