If you inject those properties properly (refer to the patch in my repo)
For example, the gt520m.txt example stripped of quite a bit of stuff that didn't look backlight related, and fixed for the names the Probook ACPI files use (DGFX vs. PEGP).

Code:
# Probook uses DGFX...
into method label _DSM parent_label DGFX remove_entry;
into device name_adr 0 label DGFX insert
begin
Method(_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)\n
{\n
    If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer() { 0x03 } ) }\n
    Return (Package()\n
    {\n
        "AAPL,backlight-control", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 },\n
        "@0,backlight-control", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 },\n
        "@0,AAPL,boot-display", Buffer (One) { 0x01 },\n
    })\n
}\n
end;

Discrete card is at PCI0.PEGP.DGFX.



_BCM/_BCL/_BQC are in SSDT-2.aml.



Yes... You're lacking the needed injections to make it recognized as AppleBacklightDisplay. I'm pretty sure I mentioned this previously.

Note: Have you tried the Nvidia web drivers?
Yes, I have tried the web-drivers. They installed without problem but after reboot I got a black screen.

Could be SMBIOS or EDID problem...

Did you add nvda_drv=1 to boot args?

Without it, installing the drivers would have no effect. The system would have loaded native drivers...

What does my Elitebook use PEGP or DGFX?

Last I checked it uses DGFX (leaf node) just as I've written now multiple times.

Full path is likely _SB.PCI0.PEGP.DGFX.

You can check for yourself in your own ACPI files.
