5 July 2016: Windows 10 and AMD Radeon drivers - Brightness not working

Notebook: Dell M4600, Windows 10, AMD 6700M

 

Sind I upgraded my Dell 4600 laptop, my screen got incredible bright and the brightness function was disabled.

I followed many recommendations and links on line:

- Monitor driver uninstall, reboot and install

- Battery power settings / brightness adjustments

- Graphics driver uninstall / update to latest version; tried older versions, not being accepted

- Adaptive brightness on/off settings

Use older AMD driver

Adaptive brightness

I read that the Catalyst AMD driver disables the brightness function of Windows 10 and followed the uninstall procedure:

None of these have worked.

Can you please help finding a solution.
