After getting frustrated with a lot of graphical problems caused by the old drivers that HP didn't care to update anymore, I downloaded the auto-detect and install software from AMD Download -site. With that I finally got rid of all the glitching in graphics while gaming.
However, now I can't adjust the screen brightness anymore. The hotkeys in my laptop's keyboard are not working nor the brightness setting in power-settings in the control panel. I can still see the slider but the brightness stays the same no matter which position the slider is in. I can, however, adjust the brightness temporarily directly from Catalyst Control Center but when I start gaming, the adjustments reset and the brightness goes back to high level.
I'd really like to get this problem solved. I wouldn't like to go back to the old 2010s driver's that HP provides. Any help will be appreciated!
