Question Blurry & dim monitor after "Mass Effect Legendary Edition" crashed ?

Jul 31, 2021
Hey all, I'm hoping you can help me as I am at my whits end trying to fix this.

Basically the game crashed quite badly last night to the point that I could not shut the game down, could not bring up the task manager etc. I had to manually restart my pc via my second monitor.

Now the text is all blurry (and there is a shadow underneath the text) and the monitor is dim, not as bright. I have checked the monitor's settings and everything is the same after the crash, made sure windows and all my drivers are updated and also manually uninstalled and reinstalled my GPU. Also reset my monitor's settings via the monitor itself. And still the issue is persist. What else can I do here? Cause I have no idea anymore.

What makes me think its now a GPU issue is because when I uninstalled my GPU, the screen flashed back to normal for a quick second and then went back to being blurry/dim.

For reference by GPU is RTX 2080 XTREME WATERFORCE 8GB and my monitor is LG UltraGear 27GL850 27" 144Hz

Thanks for all your help guys!
