    Screen auto-dimming when displaying dark backgrounds - HD 4600, Win 8.1 64bit




      I have this extremely annoying issue on my laptop: my screen automatically dims when displaying dark backgrounds. This is visible in all scenarios, and can be easily tested if I open two tabs in any Internet browser, one with a white background and one with a black background. I cannot find any way to disable it, and I am pretty sure it's an Intel driver 'feature'. The adaptive brightness setting in Windows Power management has no impact on this behavior.


      I'm using the latest Intel driver at the moment (, but the behavior has been the same for the past 3 drivers.  Please help - I need a way to get rid of this, as the constant change in brightness is very disturbing.


      Thank you.
