    Laptop starts on dim screen

    So ever since i upgraded to windows 8.1 my laptop has been having a slight problem. When ever i turn on my laptop after i turn it off at night it starts as a dim screen. The only way i can make it go back to normal is by restarting my laptop but this gets reallllly frustrating cause i have to do this everyday when i start up my laptop. I try to increase my screen brightness but it would just say its at 100. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Finklebottom, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    This may be adaptive brightness doing this. As a test, turn it off to see if it stops.

    Adaptive Brightness - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    Hope this helps for now,
