    Auto change of brightness/contrast while switching windows

    I have set adaptive brightness to off and also turned off Intel's Display Power Saving Technology. But I noticed that the entire screen changes brightness (or contrast) while I switch between 2 windows (pictures). Is this normal?

    I posted a video so you can see the problem (or is it?) in action

    If you also want to test it out yourself, here are the images used while switching windows.


    I also want to mention another issue I'm having (which I think is related to the one above, that's why I'm worried). I purchased an Asus X454LD last 5/5, and for some reason it keeps on flickering static. Sometimes not entirely on the screen, and not an opaque static but a translucent one that overlays with the work area. Then I got the unit replaced with a new one last 5/10 and the issue's still there. There are no specific programs or time that triggers this problem, it just happens. I even reinstalled both the Intel HD graphics driver and the dedicated 820m driver. I posted a video that shows the problem in action as well.
    (at around 0:20-0:25)

    Hoping for your replies. Thanks

For the past few days, I have noticed that sometimes when I switch from one open application to another (like Thunderbird to Chrome, for example) the brightness of my laptop (HP Pavilion 17-e017dx, just purchased about 2 weeks ago) increases. It's only when switching from one to the other,...

I bought this PC recently and have been very pleased with it. Adapting to Windows 8 was quick and effortless for me, and I have very few qualms about it. However, I shut down last night and when I booted up this morning, my display is different than it was before. In fact, it's quite confusion....
