    Screen brightness


    Hi I have a HP envy m6 notebook and when im viewing websites the brightness will keep randomly changing.
    why is this and how do I stop it?
    ive gone into the settings and turned off the 'enable adaptive brightness' but it still seems to keep happening
    any ideas?
