Why can't I lower my laptop screen's brightness?

I have Windows 8.1 Pro. I believe I have the latest drivers. Anyway, when I lower my ASUS notebook screen's brightness it goes black and when I increase the brightness I get my screen back. Why is that? Does that mean I can't lower my brightness?

When you lower your screen's brightness, a little box in the upper left-hand corner of your display will show you your screen's brightness level. The lower the slider in the box is, the less bright your display will be. If the slider is very low when you turn your brightness down, the display back-light will shut off. Your display is still on; you just won't be able to see anything on your screen because there's no light shining on it that will allow you to see the screen. When you turn the brightness back up, the display will turn back on. However, if the slider is not all the way near the bottom when you turn the brightness down and your display back-light does turn off, you may have a hardware issue with your screen. Take it to Best Buy Geek Squad (or a similar service) or call ASUS to troubleshoot your issues further.

Actually I have an HP Pavilion laptop and the function keys won't dim or brighten?

I really don't know what to do here

If you have recently upgraded your operating system then it is possible that your brightening and dimming keys are actually F7 and F8. If that is not the case, then you may need to reset a default option in your device manager. Go to Start>Control>Manager>Hardware and Sound and Devices manager. Find the Monitors icon and then check scan for hardware changes. If a driver is detected check remove it and then shut off and turn on your computer again. The original brightness controls should be restored to your Pavillion laptop.

Trying to fix the quick buttons for brightness on my girfriend's laptop, so far no luck?

I know she does have another LCD in the laptop that does not exactly belong in it, her old screen was broken and a store fixed it for her with a unoriginal LCD.. And if I am not mistaking the brightness buttons have never worked since then.. All other hotkeys work.. I have tried: I tried uninstalling the monitor in device manager and also tried updating the drivers. no luck at all.. I think it was caused by: Like I said I believe it might be caused by a LCD that does not meet the specs of the previous LCD
