(HP dv6-6180eg, Intel3000/ATI 6770M)

Although there have been several questions posted about this issue, I'm still not able to find a solution.

FYI, it's not possible to toggle the screen brightness out of the box on my dv6, so therefore I added those lines to my grub file: (seen here)

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash acpi_backlight=vendor" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_backlight=vendor"

I deleted them, and it worked! But now I can't toggle my screen brightness anymore. Therefore I tried this. It still doesn't work.

Any solution? Thanks in advance!
