[SOLVED] Problem with dark areas in games.

Aug 5, 2021
Hey everyone,

Recently I've calibrated my monitor (by eye, i don't have any professional tools.) and it's been looking great so far! Now a few days back I started noticing a problem, dark areas in games don't look "dark" instead, it looks like there's always a grey overlay on top of the image. This is less noticeable in bright areas but definitely still visible.

The only solution I've been able to find is turning my contrast up to ~75 from 50 in NVCP, which in turn makes all the colors look extremely oversaturated as well. I was thinking changing the gamma might help but I'd rather get a second opinion here first.

So my question: Is there a way to make dark area's well.. Darker without ruining anything else? The monitor I'm using is the Lenovo G27-Q20.
