Just throwing this one out there for anyone else who’s seeing the same weirdness. On my Lenovo ThinkPad X201 (which is amazing,) the screen would lose all contrast; everything on the screen would turn “kinda 16-bit lookin’.” I couldn’t correlate this fading, which would correct itself in a few minutes, to its power source, either.
I finally tracked down a solution:
- Right-click on the desktop
- Choose “Graphics Properties…”
- The Intel Graphics and Media Control Panel opens
- Chooose Media
- Choose Image Enhancement
- and then I forget, but resetting one of the few options in here corrected this problem 🙂
