comment Lenovo Y500 can't set brightness
@gertvdijk I realized that the nvidiabl module added another sys (nvidia_backlight) interface. By acting on this interface the backlight of the monitor works! Thank you so much

comment Lenovo Y500 can't set brightness
@gertvdijk I retried without -r but it doesn't seem to have any effect, I change the brightness using the hotkeys, it would be the same as using the /sys interfaces (the brightness file is updated as well). Thank you also for the other information regarding the plain nvidia driver that's very interesting. Sparhawk I've edited directly the booting line from grub, but still thank you for commenting (details are important)

@gertvdijk Thank you for the suggestion! I installed nvidia 313 driver and nvidiabl (I loaded with modprobe -r nvidiabl) but still not working
