    Why does my screen keep dimming itself...

    What's really getting at me recently is that my PC is dimming the screen every time I'm at a dark picture. Its annoying on dark motif websites and particularly the dark setting of chatzilla.

    I don't believe it did it in the past.

    I don't know if its the monitor (Samsung Syncmaster 2032bw) or my graphics settings on the ATI card (4870).

    I'm foxed. I've poked through every setting I can find in this silly control panel arrangement that is windows 7.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    I would think the power options in the control panel would have the option to not let the pc sleep at all. but I never heard of a case where win 7 would cause a monitor to dim the way you describe it. I don't even understand what you mean by 'a dark picture or screen up', can you please shed more light on this? If the first is an application, then stop using it? or re-install such an app.

    dont close it yet!

    Can you please explain what this obscure setting is? I'm having the same issues and i have no idea what's causing it

    EDIT: never mind. Its the DCR setting from the monitor that's causing it. Turned it off and the problem is gone!

    dynamic screen contrast or whatever is the devil, don't use it

    also this means you don't get your advertised 1 million to 1 contrast ratio, qq

    Monitor Dimming

    My Samsung Monitor does the same thing and that's how I located this site, trying to figure out how to stop it from doing it. Model F 2380.

    Samsung Monitor Model F 2380. I took it off the dynamic setting and we'll see how it goes.
