See if installing the proprietary graphics driver has any effect. If it doesn't take a look here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Laptop#Screen_brightness

I had the DV9000 a few years back and remembered having this problem until I upgraded the nVidia drivers to the experimental version (post release update). If that doesn't work you might need to find a keymapper unfortunately.

How did you install the proprietary driver? Also what is your card?
