I had screen brightness as an option in the Windows mobility center about a month ago, then it disappeared. I have searched Google countless times, but the closest I found was a BIOS problem with Toshiba computers, but I have an HP.

How do I get this option back?

P.S. The fn+f7 and fn+f8 combinations to control brightness still work.

Just a shot in the dark, but have you checked your Power Settings in Control Panel to see if they're affecting it?
Also, you may try reinstalling your video drivers in case this is a glitch with them.

No, the battery settings are missing the brightness control, too.

Also, I just reinstalled my Video Driver, and that didn't help.

I read somewhere that sometimes this is because of a problem with the BIOS, but I forgot how to load the BIOS, so I can't check.
