Hello i have just built a new video editing Lenovo w520, mobo # 04W2028, 4270-CTO i7-2820QM, 1000m, 16gb.
Everything runs great...BUT!
Every time i use a program that even looks at my GPU the screen brightness flickers.
I know it may sound like I'm turning a mole hill into a mountain but this is annoying!
It would seem as though when the GPU is running the video, It has its own brightness that i cant adjust. (I have a GPU meter that really drives it batty ^_^)
So the change is equal to the current brightness lets say 10 then i open any program and it flickers to something close to 15 (not really 15 more like 15.5) if i set it to 15 its less noticeable but i really don't want to have to live with this.
I have already tried/noticed the following:
Never dose it until i install Nividia drivers for the Quadro 1000m from Lenovo
Installed every piece of lenovo bloatware there is and updated every driver/Bio's, reinstalled video drivers a few times.
Tried this.. not it
Thought this guy had my same problem but I don't have this option in the power menu
I would really love some help on this one.
If you have any ideas please send them my way.
Eagerly awaiting your response

I have found a fix for this GPU flutter all i did was follow this guide to set the graphics to the 1000m ONLY.
Big thanks for his post >HERE<
