Windows 7: Computer display going brighter than it should be?

25 May 2013   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Computer display going brighter than it should be?

Recently I have configured my monitor's brightness & contrast settings to look optimum and it looks great i might add.

But every now and then it goes clearly brighter than it should be.
It does go away when I 'switch' user then go back into my account but I don't want this to happen full stop.

I don't suppose anybody knows what this problem is?
Any answers would be much appreciated.


It turns out this only occurs when my screen goes to sleep and I wake it up.

Mate could be just something to do with your power settings or maybe you could try reinstalling the GPU driver.
