Okay, i just about had it with this thing... this monitor is 8... 9 years old >_> but thats not really the problem (i dont think) Problem is, whenever i enter a 3d game, it turns everything really dark =\ i used to be able to bypass this by alt tabbing and I'd scroll through programs back to whatever game it is im playing. However, this doesnt work with hl2 or its mods =\ and i'd really like to play it, without being in the pitch black >_>. Before you ask, yes, ive adjusted the gama as much as i can I've done it on my desktop colours too, but that doesnt seem to effect the games. I'm using Radeon Omega drivers and ive tried various things to try to get it to stop doing this but im baffled to what i can do =\. Any help would be rather handy.
