I understand the brightness control feature is not working on your Lenovo* laptop.
Let me apologize for any inconvenience this issue may be causing to you.
I would like you to try updating the graphics driver. Please download the graphics driver from the following link depending on the operating system you have installed in your computer.
Windows 10* 32-bit https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25977/eng/win32_153343.4425.zip
Windows 10* 64-bit https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25977/eng/win64_153343.4425.zip
Please install the driver with the steps that are on this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1KzoQDjMMY

Let me know if brightness issue persists or not.
thank you for the fast answer. I tried it a few seconds ago.
The good facts first:
- the brightness doesn't drop down to the minimum when I press a brightness control button
- my nvidia graphics card works again (I forgot to mention in the orginial post that after the downgrade to the old driver I wasn't able to use my nvidia geforce gt740 graphic card)
The only bad side here is:
- the brightness stays in the highest position all the time
But I'm really happy with this solution. I think the "always on top" brightness is a sideeffect from the upgrade of my lcd screen.
I changed it a few weeks earlier from the standard 13xx resolution to a full hd display, and some other users who changed the lcd had also some brightness control issues.
So this problem is now solved for me.
Thank you for the fast help!
