Default Weird screen behavior

Had my laptop a couple of months now. Starting this morning, whenever it's plugged in at the wall and switched on the screen goes very dark - too dark to see almost. Unplug and run on battery and it's fine.

Any idea what setting has been changed?

Yup, started about 48 hrs after the update. Will need someone to talk me thru it though, as there are a lotta menus in 10 and those that look related don't seem to change a thing.

Should be a search window on the startup menu.
Type power settings.
The rest is easy.
The help and support will do the same, it just give you more to look at.
Search is your friend.

Thanks, guess it's fixed for now but you're gonna love this: Know how I went into the power settings and none of the obvious worked? Well finally I just went to the basic screen brightness setting and the slider was set all the way to the top.

So I set it all the way to the bottom - that's right, I slid it left to, as I read it zero screen brightness - and that solved it.
Brightness went to the max. Apparently 10 has gone and reversed my brightness sliders.

Thanks Windows 10!
