    It's not only on Sony computers. I'm using a Fujitsu Lifebook and have been having the same problem since I installed Windows 8 last night. I tried increasing the brightness several times, but it's stuck at practically minimum power.

    Edit: I ended up disabling the adaptive brightness. Worked like a charm. I'll probably have to enable it again once the full version of Windows 8 comes out (assuming the adaptive brightness is fixed by then). Here's a tutorial on how to disable it.

    If the problem still persist kindly include resolution of monitor as mention in the thread http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...-download.html.

    Additional requirements to use certain features:

    • Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multitouch.
    • To access Windows Store and to download and run apps, you need an active Internet connection and a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768.
    • To snap apps, you need a screen resolution of at least 1366 x 768.

    If resolution did not meet the requirements from Windows8 try to ask re-seller for they may know some adjustments or check the drivers from manufacturer's website.

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, my laptop's screen resolution is 1280x800. I came across a registry hack that may bypass the problem. But I'll ask a re-seller first, though.

    You're welcome.

    The one you have mention that I bold/italic, do not attempt to do so, it will have an effect to the OS.

    I have used some but problem came out, stick first to the free software that helps you a lot.

    I solved this issue downloading from Sony´s page the file invid-00211774-0042.exe and install the screen adapter included in that file. Now i can adjust screen brightness. This is the link: Sony eSupport - VPCS110FL - Controladores y Software

    Why the hell not if windows 8 cant their shit together and release updates and fixes to this buggy OS we need to do something.....I have an HP and have the same issue, I can even get used to 8 because I can't see anything...and I paid full price for the OS so for my money I want a product that works, am I wrong in assuming these issues should have been addressed prior to its unveiling on the public....

    I also have a Sony Vaio and couldn't adjust the brightness. I was able to fix it by going here: AMD Graphics Drivers & Software

    Look up what you are using: Windows X>System>Device Manager>Display Adapters

    I have a Radeon HD 6300 so I went here: AMD Catalyst

    I downloaded the Software Suite and installed. Brightness problem fixed.

    Hello. I also have a Sony Vaio, although it's an S series, and I had the same problem. Turns out that Sony Vaios have a feature to sense the brightness and automatically adjust display brightness. No matter what changes you make on the Windows 8 Power Plan, this feature will change them seconds later.

    You can disable this accessing the Vaio Control Center, then go to Image Quality, and then set to OFF where it says "Display Brightness - Set whether to sense the brightnes and automatically adjust the display brightness accordingly". I got this from Vaio Support and worked nicely. Hope it helps.
