So I am using an Acer Aspire One Netbook on Windows 7 64 bit. Recently I tried to lower my brightness using the Fn + left and right arrows and nothing happened. I tried updating my video drivers and I also updated the Acer launcher that handles the function buttons. All the other function buttons work. Then I went to adjust the brightness manually and to my surprise it is like brightness was deleted from Windows 7 completely. It is not in control panel. It's not in the god mode folder that I have. It's not under windows search. It does not dim like it used to when I unplug my netbook (I have it set to half brightness when unplugged) and the option to set brightness under power settings isn't even there anymore. The only thing I can think of is the last windows update that might have caused it. I've attached a screenshot of the updates I've recently installed. Not sure hot to handle this one but I am going nuts even using F.lux trying to work using full brightness. Somehow brightness just vanished from my system. I also will get terrible battery life because of this. Any help would be appreciated.

Solved it myself. Uninstalled my monitor under device manager and it seems to work again.
