Problem with Display Brightness

Hi All, I did find one other thread similar to this but with no resolution.
I had an SSD die on the spec below and so rebuilt the unit with a new SSD.
However the display brightness is now way lower than it was (even turned up to max).
The Monitor Driver is the standard Microsoft driver for Digital Flat Panel (1024 x 768) Dated 21/06/2006 10.0.19041.488.
That is slightly misleading because the resolution is running at 1920x1080. If I update the driver and select Digital Flat Panel (1920x1080) 60Hz, it still shows this in device manager.
Does anyone know the best driver to use on Windows 10 20H2?

I appreciate its darker than it used to be but assume when you turn it up and down it does actually change? it doesn't stay dark?

Yes, that is correct - it goes from very dark to not quite so dark but no comparison to what it used to be like or compared to another monitor next to it on default brightness.

Actually, the screen is brighter when the Win10 brightness control is 0 and darker when the control is at 100, which seems very odd.
The Display Adapter driver is the latest Intel driver (and all the others in between have been tried) but the Monitor driver says Digital Flat Panel (1024 x 768 60Hz). It is actually a 1920x1080 panel (as above) but if I select that driver it appears as the same description in Device Mangler. Any idea what driver should be used here?
