Monitor : Dell 2419HGF
Refresh Rate : 144hz

My displayport cable was damaged and as a result, my screen kept blacking out, needing a hard reset. I then switched over to HDMI and the screen no longer blacks out but the image texture is washed out, nowhere near the vibrant darks I got when using the displayport cable. I have tried every possible combination of :

  1. changing the monitor contrast and brightness,
  2. changing windows contrast and brightness,
  3. changing Nvidia Control Panel's "Adjust desktop colour settings", contrast, brightness, gamma, digital vibrance
  4. Even tried changing refresh rates because I know that for some reason changes display levels in some games.
  5. EDIT: Also set DESKTOP COLOUR DEPTH to HIGHEST 32BIT, OUTPUT COLOUR FORMAT to RGB, OUTPUT COLOUR DEPTH to 8BPC, AND OUTPUT DYNAMIC RANGE to FULL.
  6. I also used DDU to install the newest GPU Drivers.
I have looked at every video I could find on the topic and after trying everything, I can't get anything close to resembling the initial image.

I would greatly appreciate some help.
