Recently I was playing The Sims 3 on my new PC and I minimized the game to check on a download. When I clicked back onto the game it was all of a sudden extremely dark, so I saved and relaunched the game, this did not solve the issue. Ever since whenever I load the game, from the main menu, the loading screen, the gameplay, everything is extremely dark. This is only in fullscreen mode, and I dislike playing in windowed mode as I have to run it in a higher resolution and find it hard to see what I am doing. It is not my graphics card as before this happened I was running the game completely maxed out. I have a AMD CPU and GPU, if that helps. Is there a fix?
Edit: My brightness settings are all set correctly since other applications and games work fine.
My specs are:
AMD FX 4170 Quad Core @ 4.4Ghz
ATI Radeon HD 6670 2GB DDR3
Windows 8 (I run it with compatability mode set to Windows 7)
Solved! Go to Solution.
