Question about Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Laptop Computer - 593126U - Dark Chocolate
I've rolled back the driver Turned adaptive brightness on and off tried to use the lenovo energy management software, but nothing works

Hi, I had this problem also and I don't know why, but Lenovo Ideapad Z500 seems to have some compatibilities issues with a new Intel video card.
So, what you need to do is rolling back the HD intel video card driver to the previous version OR go to the following path: D:\drivers\VGA\Intel\x64\9.17.10 and press Setup to install the old driver again.
That solved my problem. It's a shame that I can't upload this driver in my laptop.

Hi! I've got the same issue, but I downloaded drivers from lenovo site. That solved the issue for some time. I needed to reinstall win 8.1, then this problem occured again. but drivers are fresh, so no solution found here... The only thing helps me in this situation is I just restart the laptop and press F2 to get to BIOS setup or F12 to get to startup menu, then I use brightness control to make screen brighter. then I continue computer's startup, windows (or other OS) starts and I have normal brightness. Will inform you more, when I solve the issue))) Bye.

If the docking station charging doesn't work either and your battery is ok you have lost voltage regulator (it prevents overcharging of battery) Take the battery to a battery plus store and they can check it..

After making sure that the status of network adapters in the device manager showed enabled, I tried using the Fn+F5 key on my keypad. The Fn+F5 key showed my WiFi status as disabled inspite of the Wifi toggle switch on the front of the laptop in the "on" position. So I enabled it and the WiFi led started glowing and I was able to access the internet through WiFi connection
