ASUS ROG Screen Brightness Stuck at 100

After years on Windows, I finally switched over and everything [besides 1 issue] is working excellent!

My screen brightness is stuck at 100% and neither the slider in Battery and Brightness nor the FN keys work. Over the last few days l have tried everything in all related forum threads but nothing works. My ASUS BIOS doesn’t have an option to change from Dedicated graphics to Switchable, so thats the only option which I haven’t been able to try

Also, since l’m new to Linux, please can you give me step by step instructions.

Here’s my inxi -Fxxz` output:
