    Screen goes dark at about 30 degree angle from flat

    I have an ASUS Transformer 300 with the Windows 8 virus on it If it weren't for win 8 I think I would be pretty happy with it but for one problem. When I tilt the tablet to about a 30 degree angle from being flat on the table the screen darkens. Sometimes I just have to lift the tablet up a little or set it down a little and I get my screen saver back, but other times it takes a little more maneuvering. I have kept the tablet up to date with all of the recommended updates. Any suggestions? It is an especially annoying problem for a tablet, a computer that was designed to be used at about any angle imaginable.

    When did this start happening? Do you recall adding any Apps just prior to the problem?

    Do you have "auto-brightness" turned on in your settings? That might account for the change. Try turning it off and checking...

    settings>Display>Brightness -uncheck [ you can manually set the brightness, most members run at about 50% screen brightness since the screen is the major battery slurper)

    Windows 8 is not a virus - your profile lists TF300T which is an Android tablet. Which Asus Tablet do you own?

    added: Reread your post -- if your screen is going "dark" or black you might want to try a Cold Boot and see if that helps. The Cold Boot proceedure is linked in the Master Help Guide.
