  1. Screen dimming and video playback issues.


    Hello! Recently my laptop has been having some issues. I've noticed that now-a-days whenever I put my laptop in charging, the screen brightens, and when I unplug it, it dims. I've also seen a similar thing in video playback. Whenever I'm watching netflix, or just even a video, when I go into fullscreen mode, the screen brightens and dims frequently. It flickers. This issue hadn't come up before and now it is, I've updated my graphic drivers, and I've searched a lot online, I couldn't find any solution. Some help would be really appreciated, thanks!

    :)

    Weird screen dimming issue.


    For the last few weeks I've had this bizarre issue where my screen will randomly dim. I can't click on anything when this happens.. The only way to fix it, is to either restart my computer or re-log.

    Any suggestions?
