I have a brand new setup and monitors and when searching the web or watching a video all of a sudden everything will get darker for a second and go back to normal, i tried swapping out monitors and it still does it, any one have an idea why or what is causing this? in games i don't think its happening or im not noticing it.

pc specs
i9 9900k
evga rtx 3080ti ftw3
corsair hx 1000w
asus z390 prime-a
4x8 corsair vengeance pro rgb
samsung 980 1tb m.2
corsair h150i capellix

Maybe play around with windows energy settings. Like set monitor to never go to sleep, try balanced or switch to high performance, just test some of the settings.
I have tried every setting there is in power settings, NVidia control, and even the monitor menu themselves. I've tried 3 different monitors with 3 different display port cables/hdmi cables

well incase anyone stumbles across this thread with this issue, I got it to stop, not exactly sure which thing stopped it but here is what I did, I updated my motherboard bios, followed by a gpu firmware update. Also turned use hardware acceleration off in chrome, and now all my issues are gone!
