HP has released an advisory/document regarding this issue. It speaks about the issue  where you can only adjust display brightness very slightly using Fn F9 or Fn F10 key on your HP EliteBook 8530w Notebook. This issue is reported in Windows Vista OS.

HP EliteBook 8530w Notebook is shipped with NVIDIA Graphics, and older version of the driver caused this issue. We need to update the driver to solve the issue.  The download link is provided below:
