I bought a ASUS VG278Q with windows 10 as a primary monitor for my 2 monitor setup and I cant, for the life of me, find any way to change the brightness. In Device Manager it shows as Generic PNP. I've tried to update drivers but it says its up to date. I've enabled and disabled device. I've tried to find drivers on their website. I've tried keyboard commands. I've looked in action center. I've looked in display settings. I've looked everywhere. Cannot fix.

Help!

You can change brightness, contrast, saturation etc from the monitor's OSD menu, unless sRGB Mode has been selected in the GameVisual function:

I've also changed screen brightness using the CCC mechanism for my AMD GPU.

I figured it out. You know where the setting was hiding? In my Nvidia display settings. Windows had no control over it. I right clicked on desktop and skipped past "Display settings" and went to "Nvidia settings". Jesus that took a while to find.

 

Thanks to all you who posted.
