I swear W8 is just a total unusable pos
I have a problem with the brightness slider. So I usually control brightness with the two brightness buttons on my keyboard instead of the W8 slider. I have an HP-pavillion.
Until recently, when the past few days I've had to install a few updates my brightness settings always worked fine. However now, the W8 slider won't allow itself to be changed past level zero and level 1 brightness from the keyboard. Now, if I hold down the buttons on the keyboard my screen will go full spectrum, but the W8 slider won't move anywhere outside of lowest and +1 setting.
I can slide it with my mouse manually, however it doesn't have ANY effect. The same goes for the useless W8 settings menu (Windows+I) brightness slider.
No idea what's going on, but this actually causes problems sometimes, with not being able to change brightness the way I want, although I can't always recall what I had to do to reproduce the problem.
