    How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    Thanks for the help Brink.. I was hoping this would help me eliminate background apps as an issue. No go though. I am still experiencing the dimming/brightening display. I noticed that my post screen is full brightness and when it goes to the Windows petals/loading, the screen brightness reduces drastically. As soon as I log in and it goes to my desktop, the brightness returns to normal, until I do anything that shows a darker image like a game or a dark webpage.. Whatever is happening is actually dimming the display because everything, taskbar, text, buttons and even mouse cursor dim..

    Again, this doesn't happen in Windows 7. So, confused and annoyed.. :\

    Kodiak and Kirk,

    As a test, uninstall your display drivers to see if they may be at issue here.

    Tried that already. uninstalled and still dimmed my display using the Windows generic video. Installed new drivers from safe mode and normal boot. Installed newest drivers from ATI website, newest drivers from ASUS website, 2 other beta drivers and the standard Windows 8 drivers. Ran ATI driver cleaner between each install then eventually used most recent Catalyst. Doesn't affect it in the least.

    Trying to play Tomb Raider right now... I want to cry every time I go into a text screen... Everything works great except for this dimming issue. Even effects it in movies like on Netflix..

    I'm afraid that I'm not sure what may be causing this.

    Can't keep display brightness from dimming


    I followed your advice and went into advanced settings and display but didn't have an enable adaptive brightness section so couldn't follow the advice through
    Any ideas?
    The dimming screen is driving me nuts!

    Hello Tess, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    In that case, you might check using the tutorial below to make sure that the dim settings is set to "Never" to see if that may be the culprit instead.

    Hi, please help... the auto dim feature is driving me nuts. Sat in the garden in the sun trying to do some work yesterday and the screen literally dimmed every few seconds. So annoying. I've followed all the steps outlined, but no success.

    Steps I've taken:

    - In the edit settings screen 'dim display' is set to never (both for on battery and plugged in)
    - In the list of services, sensor monitoring has been disabled
    - Don't have the adaptive brightness setting in the advanced settings screen so couldn't change that

    What else can I do?

    Hello Oliver, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    In your Dimmed display brightness setting in your power plan settings, check to make sure that both "On battery" and "Plugged in" are set to the same "display brightness" percentage. This way when it dims, it'll be the same percentage so you will not see a change.
