    I have a late 2011 mbp w/ windows 7 pro installed via bootcamp.

    it's the base model 15' which i've upgraded a little
    8gb ram
    750gb hybrid drive
    amd 6750m video card (updated drivers to 12.3 and this is when the issues started.)

    windows 7 has been fully updated, I'm also running the latest version of bootcamp drivers. I tried to play some games and noticed my 6750m's drivers were older and I downloaded the latest and installed them. shortly there after my brightness maxed out automatically and is not controllable. be it the F keys or the power options, or display options.

    any one know of this issue and any tips to remedy it?

    I've cleaned the 12.3 driver out and reloaded it to only have the same issue come back when reloaded, funny thing is, I saw bootcamp install nvidia drivers adn the driver cleaner I used saw those. and my mbp only has intel graphics and the amd video card...

    why can't apple just keep the video drivers updated on bootcamp.... :confused:

    Brightness works fine for me. OPen BootCamp controls and check your F key settings

    Never mind, I just saw the title (In Windows)

    ... Shift and Option before pressing the Brightness keys on your keyboard...
