    Anton, thanks for the solution.
    However on reboot it doesn't remember the brightness level what I set earlier and on first brightness '-' operation it goes to 0 from maximum. How can I overcome this?

    Thanks.

    Re: Sony Vaio VPCCW1E1R Brightness control Ubuntu 9.10

    Hi Anton,

    Few years down the lone now, ran through all of the steps on a VPCCW16FG Vaio but didn't help adjust screen brightness. Keys are fn+F5+F6. Bar moves but no action.

    Any new update on this would be kindly appreciated.
    Regards
