    Display Brightness has "disappeared"


    I have a Lenovo Flex 14 - win 8.1 (64 bit).
    I have restored my pc and after the recovery the option to adjust the display brightness has "disappeared".
    The option is no longer in place in the charms bar or in Power Option and the adjustment keys (F11 and F12) are not working either.
    Have tried to update the driveres (intel and Nvidia) but didn't help.

    Hope you guys can help.

    Try installing the chipset and display drivers you find here: Laptops and netbooks :: Flex Series :: Flex 2 14 Notebook Lenovo - Lenovo Support (US)

    Both Intel and Nvidia display drivers. And welcome to the forum!
