Hi Bbmaster91, it is possible this is related to the adaptive brightness feature.
Not all systems include this feature but perhaps you can find it in the advanced settings of the power plan (Power Options). I found this option by expanding “Display”.
However, there is also the chance that the Intel® HD Graphics driver that included such “display power saving technology” option was specifically designed for your system by the computer manufacturer. So, you probably would like to try with such version again.
It is 100% not related to adaptive brightness. This has been turned off and it has nothing to do with my surrounding environment. And as I mentioned in my first post, disabling the intel drivers from the device manager fixes the issue which means it is something related to the intel driver settings. Also, I was able to stop this from happening in previous versions of the drivers by turning off the disable adaptive brightness setting in the intel settings. This setting has since been removed from the drivers for some weird reason. Is there a way to access this setting anymore or disable it from the registry or something like that?
Did you try changing Contrast Enhancement in Video, Image Enhancement, Advanced or Display Power Saving Technology in Power (Plugged in or Battery drop down)?
