    hi i have the gf2mx100 and it has been weird when playing games. maybe its my monitor but i don't know. the games i play which include fifa2003 and need 4 speed hs2 seem kinda dark and not enough light. in fifa 2003 there is no display settings so i can't do much there and for need 4 speed there is little i cna do to make it brighter. should i get those nvidia40whq driver or whatever its called???? by the way my desktop and stuff isn't dark, its just when i play games

    it could be your monitor. maybe at 60hz it can't produce a bright enough screen. but on your desktop, which might be like 75hz, it displays fine. try another monitor.

    It sounds to me like a gamma situation instead of a monitor problem as such. Try looking to see if you can tweak the gamma level the options of the games you are playing (most games have that setting) - if that fails you can get a utility like Powerstrip to set the gamma settings for individual games.
