Fedora 25 computer not recognized as Laptop

asked 2017-01-21 13:59:51 -0500

I don't really have a better way of describing it, but basically I have a Dell Inspiron 7559, and got it to work with the regular open source drivers, but it does not seem to recognize the computer as a laptop or at least the monitor. If I close the lid, nothing happens, if I go to the menu option at the top right I do not see a dimming option for the monitor. The Displays settings just have the monitor described as Unknown Display, and the Function keys do not affect monitor brightness

Any ideas how to get things working correctly?

The output of lspci and ls /sys/class/backlight would be useful.
