Dim backlight only in XP?

On Microsoft » Microsoft XP

6,220 words with 9 Comments; publish: Fri, 30 May 2008 20:44:00 GMT; (33146.88, « »)

I have a Gateway T-6815 laptop. I've just formatted the machine and

installed Windows XP Pro SP2.

I had no problem locating drivers for this laptop and installing them, but

for some reason, the Intel 965 driver turns the laptop backlight almost

completely off. The laptop is not usable this way.

I've tried making power saver adjustments in the Windows control panel. Also

made changes in the Intel control panel... No change.

Does anyone have any idea how to work around this?

    • As intel says,once the OS is installed,run the intel chipset installation

      utility

      for youre board,then install drivers..Also,once thru,install the latest

      Direct X

      download,once all is thru,if problems exist,go to run,type:DXDIAG Run the

      Direct X tests...

      This is a hardware problem, not software...hence it does not relate to

      XP...meaning it is out of place here.

      Ask elsewhere

      That Vista is MUCH better than XP and that I shouldn't want to install XP.

    • You admitted yourself this IS a hardware problem, in the HARDWARE newsgroup,

      so how does it not relate to the group subject? If it was software, which

      you state would be on topic, then it would NOT belong here.

      Are you trying to tell us that Gateway didn't supply the drivers for

      that operating system to be used on that computer?

      Because it has NOTHING to do with the OS. Look at the title and

      figure that out: the OS and it's interaction with hardware. This

      problem had NOTHING to do with the OS and was purely hardware.
