Black screen in dark games, no crash, simply blacked out.

My issue happens when playing CoD MW and I attempt to visit the gunsmith to edit a weapons attachments, when I get notices in GTA V or CoD MW, Playing We Happy Few when I venture somewhere too dark. The screen will cut to black and continue after I've resolved the issue, doing things such as; pushing enter blindly on the notices that trigger said issue, screen changes from loadout edit to gunsmith just lasts a fraction of a second, and in we happy few I must find a brighter location in the dark, with the monitors image cut out. There seems to be a pattern around darkness causing this issue that never happened with my Nvidea 1650 Super 4GB. The game volumes are unaffected, the computer didn't crash, I feel as though the graphics card is having a difficult time distinguishing between the appropriate time to black out and save power and when I simply enter a darker scene. This makes it almost impossible to play games where screen brightness isn't an option, when there is a night time in-game. We Happy Few is a good example, find a dark corner and walk into it and your screen cuts to black, NOT because of what is in front of the camera but because it's not registering the darker light levels. Please fix this, paid almost $700 CAD for my new GPU and I'm real upset when I play a new game to get this.
