No more brightness/contrast control for me

Now I am putting this here as I guess it probably can relate to the graphics card.
Anyhow here is my story:
ever since I got mandriva on this computer things have worked quite well 7 out of 10 times (I have bumped into issues but most of them were easy to fix)
anyhow the other day after my computer updated I rebooted my system due to a Internet issue (not related to mandriva but my ISP) but when I logged back in I have noticed my capacity to adjust my monitor contrast and brightness is gone in the control center.
Now this is not a monitor issue, I am quite sure on that matter.
Its an older monitor but mandriva picked it up after my install was done.
But now its gone, I have tried to get back the original settings but so far no cigar.
If you need the specs here they are:
HP pavilion MX50 (plug and play)
Graphics card:
Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Integrated Graphics Controller (its a 915 model according to Ubuntu and a few other distributions)

Any help is appreciated.
