I'm having some weird problems. It all started with me trying to take screenshots for the avatar requests form, I took a few but they all ended up darker than they were in-game. I tried increasing the gamma and all that to counteract the effect (in the Intel graphics and media control panel), but once I tabbed back in-game the changes were non-existent and when I tabbed out the changes were non-existent on the desktop as well (I even tried maxing it all out (making it all almost completely white before entering the game)).
I have tried to increase the brightness in-game, and that works if I want to play with a brighter screen, but the screenshots come out as dark as if I hadn't touched those controls (even with maximum brightness). When I have something in front of the game (when windowed) like a folder or a browser and I can see the game in the background, the brightness is the same as the screenshots (i.e. dark).
My drivers are up-to-date before you suggest upgrading them.
