My PC is running Manjaro. Unfortunately since recently my PC is restarted by itself and is then displayed to me that.

[FAILED] Failed to start load/save screen backlight brightness of backlight:acpi_video0

Can someone please explain to me what this is and how I can fix it?

searching for the same error lead to this thread

Editing the grub to add acpi_backlight=video fixed it for me.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet acpi_backlight=video"
  • could you please explain that to me as well? What is this acpi_backlight=video?
