Okay, just an update. I finally got the display controls to properly install; they're working great. However, when I boot XP the screen's brightness seems to be turned off--At first, I needed day light to see my screen. In order to fix this I have to hit Fn+F6 and adjust my brightness. This causes my screen to wake up, so to speak, and turn the brightness on. Is there anyway through this?
I tried reinstalling the driver and found the problem to remain the same--the display appears to be turned off until you hit FN+F6 or F7 to increase to decrease the brightness setting. I also have a laptop with the same processor and graphics running Windows 7 and it seems to be fine. Moving to 7 could solve this problem; however, my employer uses Windows XP and I feel more comfortable using it. Any ideas?
