my keyboard isn't working to brighten the screen, does anyone know how to do this from the software side?

Do you want to brighten the screen itself or the gama control? Is this a laptop?

If its a laptop it is a hardware problem since the brightness of your screen is controled by the bios. You should check there first. Also you may have to plug the laptop in before it brightens itself.

perris, as you know, laptops have a powersave function that reduces the brightness to prolong the battery life. Perhaps you could disable this feature through the control panel, display settings - for troubleshooting purposes!

it's plugged in allready, can't control brightness, I suspect I turned something off in trouble shooting that might be responsible

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
