My screen suddenly become darker

Hi, my screen suddenly got darker since the last update. i have tried to reinstall and roll back to older version but it doesn't help.

when i boot using safe mode, my screen returned to normal and so is when i uninstall the amd driver from my computer. so i'm sure it's caused by driver from amd.

i also tried windows color calibration and cannot seem to change the parameter. (maybe locked by amd driver?)

i think the gamma is the problem but i cannot change it

can anyone help me with this problem??

My spec :

OS : Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

VGA : AMD radeon R9 380 Series

Driver ver installed :

- win7-64bit-radeon-software-adrenalin-2019-edition-18.12.2-dec12

- win7-64bit-radeon-software-adrenalin-2019-edition-19.1.1-jan10

- Win7-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-Edition-

have tried all of this

i attached a screen shot but i dont know how it will be displayed on your computer so don't use that to see if it's brighter

I’m currently away from home and I cannot check by myself, but if you press Alt+R (anywhere) you can find a menu called “Colors” or something like that. Inside there should be a brightness slider. Try with that!

By the way, your screenshot is perfectly fine.


Alt + R didn't do anything. and i have tried to use color for brightness wether it's from windows, from amd settings, and from my monitor itself.

then it's only in my display that got darker T.T
