Dark monitor geforce GT440(after going to desktop with dark wallpaper)

Hello guys,

i have one simple problem and would like if somebody can help me.
Yesterday i bought new grafic card geforce GT440 after my old 9800 GT stoped functioning normaly(memory failure).
So here is the problem, when I start any program or do anything the computer the computer is functioning normally, but when I turn to desktop(which has black wallpaper) the monitor goes so dark that I can't see almost nothing. I tryed to find some power saving options in windows(win 7 pro, 64 bit) and on envidia control panel but i cannot find any cause for that dark screen. Even if I load a black page on my mozilla the monitor goes dark. As it cannot represent dark colors normally. Thanks in andvance for Your help.

Greetings from Croatia,
Martin König
