Ideapad Y700-15ISK - Games are dark (overall), especially entities (in old games)

Good morning,

 

I first through it was an NVidia issue, but I've tested on both IntelHD Graphics and the GTX 960M, same issues; Drivers up to date (Windows 10).

 

Original post on NVidia forums (unanswered):

https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/980544/geforce-900-series/gtx-960m-games-are-dark-wolfet-re...

 

It's particularly an issue with Wolfenstein Enemy Territory; You can see with the screenshots in my DropBox that enemies are almost totally black.

 

I did some research from time to time the past months, should I run a calibration tool like CalMAN RGB?

 

Any other idea? ^^' This is really an issue when it comes to game development... Things being darker than they really are >.>

 

Oh also: adaptive brightness off, brightness 100%, tested with f.lux on and off.

Hello Mateos,

 

Thank you for sharing your issue with the lenovo forum,

 

To help with the issue you are experimenting are you able to send a video of this issue and any images on different games if it also happens on them?

Good morning,

 

Sorry for the late reply; I got an answer on NVidia Forums side, which was to try OEM driver for the graphic card.

 

I did not expect that to help, since the issue was happening on both Intel HD Graphics and the NVidia, but the game entities are no longer pitch black, but quite dark, still, but that's better Smiley Happy

 

Thank you!
