Windows 7: Screen seems like it isn't dark enough(not brightness).

Screen seems like it isn't dark enough(not brightness).

First of all: lowering brightness does not help, I tried it.

On my monitor it seems like everything is too bright, as in places that should be pitch black are a bit too light. For example: on my iPod, even with full brightness settings everything looks normal, but on my PC's monitor it just doesn't look right.

I calibrated color and setting gamma way low really helped, but my contrast is set to full, and my brightness is 75.

The strange thing: when I ran Crysis 1, it fixed the monitor color! So I know the darn thing is capable, I just don't know how to.

When I closed down Crysis it went back to normal.

Jaypaul,

Your system specs will be helpful.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

Add the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

i agree with Karl we need some specs but in the meantime check your video card control panel (catalyst control center or nvidia) in case there some special settings on which are causing this.
