Screen dims when something dark shows

Specs: Windows Vista
For some reason when my screen is showing something dark, the screen fades into a darker shade.

I have a LCD monitor, vista home premium, and nvidia graphics

Screen dims when:
-playing a video and the scene is dark
-play a game where the situation is visualy dark.

It's very frustration, I've went to Nvidia support and went through much effort and I'm quite sure I don't have smartdimmer enabled.

help please, this dimming is ruining every lesuire activity I do on the comp (games, movies)

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 2333, and had this issue. The monitor's own menu has an 'intelligent' brightness control called "MagicBright." Yours may have something with a similar function. Once I set this function to anything other than "Dynamic" the brightness no longer functioned independently. Therefore, I believe this was a try at an intuitive brightness control that caused your symptoms.
