ThinkPad X220 display stuck on low brightness

Hey guys,

Just received a used x220 and booting it up for the first time the display seems to be stuck on low brightness. I tried pushing it up using the Fn keys but no success.
Any thoughts on how to tackle that ?

Thanks!

Thomas

I’m still curious as to why that Ralink card would end up in an x61... I guess that laptop was probably tweaked in some ways. Anyway, I’m going to reins...
