I have an external monitor connected to my hdmi port on my laptop GTX 1660Ti. The monitor darkens and the image quality looks horrible for a few seconds and then it turns normal again after a few seconds or when I move something on the screen. I also noticed that the taskbar is also darkened. I am using Windows 11 version 21H2 Build 22000.348
 
usually this is a "Power Saving" feature.
lowering brightness, etc uses less electricity.

disable any available settings pertaining to this in the display's OSD menu and see if it stops.
you can also check system manufacturer software for settings related to this.

I have an LG screen but the "Smart Energy Saving" function is currently set to off. I have found a thread which has an issue that is similar to mine: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/monitor-turns-deep-fried.3736372/
