Same problem with a 1501. Gutsy with all the updates (it's updating some
stuff right now, but they're unrelated). The funny thing is, I used to
have this problem in Feisty, until Dell released a bios update. Then it
_sort of_ worked. If I hit the brightness keys a few times (no matter
which one), eventually it would dim a little, and if I hit them some
more, it would brighten back up. I had only those two options: kind of
dim, and bright, but it was better than nothing.

After I installed Gutsy (clean install), the brightness keys aren't
working anymore.

I did what Francisco suggested, and all I get is a little message next
to the battery icon on the system tray (is that the guidance manager?)
saying: " Brightness: 0%", no matter if I say brightnessUp or
