Ubuntu – Display brightness control not working in 17.10


I just upgraded to ubuntu 17.10 and now display brightness controls are not working, and i am not able to change display brightness at all. But it was working perfectly in 17.04

I also tried this method, but still not working.
When I saw system details, it shows unknown graphics.

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "card0"
        Driver      "intel"
        Option      "Backlight"  "intel_backlight"
        BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"

What can I do now?
