Display turns grayscale when watching Youtube videos - everything gray except the video itself?

I've noticed that on one of my machines, when watching videos on Youtube, the entire display, except for the video itself, will turn grayscale. It happens in both Chrome and IE, but only on the external display, which is a 27" Acer. The machine in question is a Thinkpad x220 with integrated Intel graphics, and this "graying-out" of the background does not happen on the integrated laptop display. I would like to disable the setting that controls this behavior, but I can't figure out if it is a display driver setting, an OS setting, or where such a setting might be found.
