I have a hp g50 laptop that I am working on that is giving me a fit. The problem is that I have to hit the fn and f8 keys to raise brightness every time I boot it. I installed PClinuxOS 2010. 12 on it then applied all the updates. It was doing this before I updated it. PCC shows an nvidia 6100 and later driver in use. I went into the nvidia settings to try to fix it but it was useless. I also checked the bios to see if some settings had changed. They had not. Anyone have any ideas about this. It sure is annoying.
