For the onboard monitor on an X230. (ips)
latest intel drivers. When i noticed it, i checked all video settings and found it had "dynamic contrast" enabled. Disabled it, but it still does it in a normal windows environment.
Load a black or dark screen, the brightness shoots way down. Switch to white, it starts out really dim and scales back to what it should be.

I've got the same problem. I do not have a "dynamic contrast" option in my Intel Graphics Control Panel, yet it is clearly on and exhibits the same behavior as blackomegax describes. Running windows 8 with latest Intel drivers (220.127.116.1175).
