Windows 7: My screen color/brightness changed

My screen color/brightness changed

Yesterday I noticed while I was playing Counter Strike, that the colors changed so did the brightness. I thought it was only the game, but I went on the internet and it was brighter than it was before.

Sorry I can't show pictures somewhy, they don't show you the difference between the pictures.
