I really don't know how to describe this. I started noticing weird gray coloration in dark areas when playing games. I am forced to turn down the gamma, because it is so awfully ugly on default. And when I turned to gamma down to the point where it wasn't noticeable anymore, it got too dark to see anything else. I was forced to switch my monitor because it was so bad.. I went back to my old monitor and I noticed significant improvement in the quality of dark areas. The monitor I am using now looks perfect even at default gamma. The other monitor used to look so much better, but since this problem showed up, I just can't be bothered to use it.. I don't know what could of caused this, but I hope someone can help me figure it out. Another way to describe it: there is grey "blending" in any dark area, as if the "black got burnt into greyness". Or another way to describe would be:as if someone put gray paint in a few spots where it's dark. This is a huge problem when I play any kind of game because it's just so distracting. If anyone else has actually had this problem, please let me know.
