    Brightness goes to minimum even after making all settings


    brightness goes to minimum as soon as i start my system and then i can't increase it using any settings . I can increase it sometimes using keyboard , but that is temporary . Also whether it is plugged in or not , that thing doesn't change the problem.

    Do you have a Laptop? If so, are you sure Adaptive Brightness is disabled?

    Thanx a lot for the reply !!! Few days back i figured it out that the problem was with the F2 key in my laptop. ( The F2 key in my laptop is used to reduce brightness ) . Becos of that problem the UEFI interface also used to start every time i powered on my lappy. And UEFI only starts during boot if F2 is pressed.
