Every so often I have an issue with my ACER desktop monitor.
Whenever I am at the base desktop screen it seems to be extremely dark where turning up my brightness does not work.
However when I load a game its brightness is back to normal but once exiting the game its still grayed out and hard to see.
I cannot figure out for the life of me why its doing this. I know its not the backlight because it works fine when playing a game and my settings havent been messed with.

Maybe you have the equivalent of dynamic contrast / brightness enabled?

Its a PITA and does exactly that

Thank you detection! I forgot my videocard had a second set of display settings and guess what dynamic contrast/ brightness was turned off due to the monitors settings. and agreed its a pita especially cause ive been trying for days to fix this.

Mine is an actual monitor setting, I have to disable it from the LCD itself
