    So yesterday this happened. Fn+Del/Backspace to change screen brightness up or down doesn't seem to change anything anymore. Now the screen looks as if it was set to dark. I also tried to change it in the action center, and in display settings, but nothing seems to work... Even when I plug in the charger, which normally changed brightness now does nothing.

    CU update, non insider, Intel and Display drivers up to date.

    What else can I try? Has this occurred to anyone else here?

    Thanks

    Have never had this happen before. Have you tried resetting by pressing the power and the volume up? I read this worked for another person as it shuts down the hardware.

    Good idea, totally forgot about that. I will try that later today and report back.

    Thanks

    This happened to me after the creators update. I uninstalled the display driver, restarted and installed the driver again, that solved the problem.

    Power button + Vol Down solved my brightness issue. Thanks :)
