Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Can not change LCD brightness

\015 I have a Acer Aspire 6935G. On the laptop is a program called Acer Empowering TechnologyIn the program you can acces the recovery for lost programs that come with the laptop etc.Also you can choose your Energy use. Like you can turn down the Processor speed etc... Normally I should be able to turn down my screen clarity, wich I could in the beginning. but now it's likely stuck on minimum or 30 % and I can't raise it or lower it. is this a driver problem or a hardware problem?thanks anyways :D\015
