Hello!

 

As of recently, my web browsers have begun to fade or change the brightness on some particular websites. I also notice it gets darker the more I go down the page.

 

I think, although I am not completely sure this might have happened after I installed new AMD drivers for Watch_Dogs however I am not completely sure.

 

For example, this website is fine, Reddit is fine, all nice and bright. But when I go onto something like Icefilms.info, I see an fade. I actually see it transition.

 

I've tried googling it and everything but I cannot find any answers at all and it's driving me insane!

 

Please could any shed some light (No pun intended)?

 

Many thanks.

What fade/transition? The background on icefilms.info is totally black.

"What fade/transition?"

 

I mean, no disrespect, but this is why I made the post. Because I can only assume yours is working properly and you don't see the fade, the incredible drop in brightness on some webpages. And no, it's not because it's black, it also happens to be the more I scroll down on certain pages the less the brightness becomes.

 

And it has nothing to do with my accidentally changing the brightness settings with my mouse wheel. I've tested on various webpages.

Can't seem to get a video. Let me better describe it.

 

When something on my browser has a dark background, my brightness lessens too.

 

 

EDIT: I know this looks like I'm incredibly stupid. I know how it sounds :P But I can assure you something have changed! =[

I think I've fixed it!!!!

 

I was watching Game of Thrones and I noticed when it's a dark scene the brightness auto-adjusts itself. So it got me thinking.

 

I went through the menu options in brightness on my screen and it was using something called Magic Adjust on the Brightness Setting. I switched that onto Custom and now it doesn't seem to be switching between light and dark brightness settings.

 

Just thought I would post just incase someone else has a similar problem.

 

I'm still unsure as to why it became changed. But oh well!

 

 

Thanks anyway for trying to assist me.

 

 

Simon
