Windows 7: Second Monitor (Extended display) Automatically Dims

Second Monitor (Extended display) Automatically Dims

This is a strange problem...

My secondary monitor automatically dims itself unless I engage it either by pulling up the context menu or clicking a window. Simply bringing my mouse into its area doesn't brighten it, and it automatically dims as soon as I finish a task on that monitor.

Say I open a text document, click save and close it, as soon as the document closes the monitor dims.

I've searched around my video card's driver and firmware and I can find nothing, but I suspect this is a feature of said card.

Any ideas?

Is this on your ASUS display? If so, check to see if there's a way to turn off ASCR* from the display's menu.

*ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio) Technology automatically adjusts the luminance of the backlight for better displays according to the image contents, and improves the contrast ratio to 12000:1 – resulting in more realistic depictions of night scenes during games or movies
