    Very odd. On my Acer Aspire 1410, I'm not able to adjust screen brightness while Windows 7 was running. Screen brightness is adjusted by pressing the FN and Arrow keys at the same time.
    When I rebooted, I could adjust screen brightness with he FN/Arrow keys UNTIL I saw the "Starting Windows" logo. Then it no longer worked.
    Any idea what I can do to fix this?

    Sounds like you're missing either a keyboard driver or some other driver that enables the Fn combo keys. Take a look at the Acer website to see if there's any drivers you're missing.

    Sometimes it's not actually a "driver" but a program that you need running after boot, so check in the application tab as well as the driver tab.
