hello dear community,


the notebook samsung q 210 has got no brightness.

in other words i cannot controll it. it is too dark


see the data:

Samsunng q 210, 12,1" OpenSuse 13.1: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Proz. P8400 2,26 GHz 1066 MHz FSB 3 MB PC2-6400 (800 MHz), DDR2 SODIMM ; NVIDIA GeForce® 9200M GS

any idea to change that?!

love to hear from you

greetings

hello dear Semme,

many many thansk for all the hints - on a quick fiew on all that ressources i saw that many many ppl are facing the same issues

i have to admint - that i did not test all the things untill now. but some of the approaches did not fit.

now i will try all the others. I Will do all the tests and come back and report!


ON A SIDENOTE: well one thing i can test is to enter BIOS, and control brightness with <fn> keys - i need to get to know if i get it to a ssatisfactory level with this method?

and perpahs this may help: on this site; https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA#Enabling_brightness_control

but this code does not work for me...:

Quote:

lspci -k | grep -A 2 -i "VGA"


well i need to find out if i have a nvdia in my samsung notebook q 210

note: i have no problem with the function of the fn keys - they work and i can adjust the brigthness in a certain range. but the range is very limited.



again: i will do all the tests again - and then i come back here again.


i am glad that this site is so supportive. And you semme you do a great job here.

keep on doing this.

many many greetings -and thanks for all you do

m. aka say hello Smile

hello dear semme

well kutsches issue had to do with the fn-keys.
my keys work well - so i have to find a soltion where i can increase the brightness somehow. despite the fact that the fn-keys were workin quite well....

i will try to digg deeper and come back again when i know more.

meanwhile many many thanks to you

greetings

Did you get a chance to install xbacklight? Here, this'll give us your card:
Code:
lspci -nnk | grep VGA

...here is what i have

Code:
linux-70ce:/home/martin # lspci -nnk | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation G98M [GeForce 9200M GS] [10de:06e8] (rev a1)
linux-70ce:/home/martin #



btw - found an interesting article - enabling backlight-controll - with special regard on NVIDIA.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA#Enabling_brightness_control

well - lots (tons) of information. I want to read through all that at the weekend.

do you think that these things on archlinux may help?


look forward to hear from you again


greetings Smile
