Currently, I have a Mac Mini (mid 2011) - standard configuration/complement. I also have my Apple Cinema HD Display (M8537ZM/A). I have installed a Win7 -64 Boot Camp partition, splitting the HD evenly. Everything works fine EXCEPT this whole dimming issue of the HD Display. I have tried the HDMI adapter and the Mini DVi adapter. Is this an issue with the Intel HD Graphics 3000? When I look in the Control Panels, it names the display correctly, but the driver is a General PnP Display. I had a Mac Mini (late 2009) previously, with this same monitor and no dimming issue. Though the previous model had an nVidia graphics card installed (again standard complement). I have searched board after board and everything just seems to be a "he-said-she-said" conversation, with no clear resolution. Am I missing a key driver somewhere? Is there a solution for my current equipment setup? I have had this monitor since it first came out and to date, I have no missing pixels and I can't see a degradation of resolution or quality, so I want to keep using this monitor until it fails. Any serious/sincere assistance is greatly appreciated.

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Mid 2011, i5 Core, 4GB/500GB
