I have a PC with a videocard nVidia 7600GT. Few days ago I got an LCD
monitor LG L194WT.

Well, this turned out to be a cheap and nasty monitor. I have
experience with using a higher-class LCD monitor for playing games and
editing digital photographic pictures.

In this monitor on the standard settings, the text in webbrowser is
al'right, however all images are too dark. I tried to adjust the
monitor. First of all, I decreased the brightness to 50% (the monitor
is too bright). Secondly, I went to the video card driver software
("nVidia Control Panel"), and adjusted the gamma running "Display
optimization wizard". Unfortunately, the game Half Life 2 DM is still
too dark. Whatever knobs/settings I twist, it is dark. The monitor has
modes "normal", "user", "text" and "movie"... all of them leave the
images dark.

The only thing left is to go to the nVidia Control Panel, and adjust
gamma within "Desktop color settings". This is very effective, and
brightens the dark tones... however, am I soomed to increase gamma
every time I want play game HL2DM, and decrease it when I go back into
the desktop !?? Are there better ways ? Or, being cheap, the monitor
does not have a high enough dynamic range for adjustment ??

Why ? I did not have to do it when I was using the laptop. In the
laptop, the pictures in the desktop had a proper tonality, and the
game had proper tonality, too.

Why are you asking me why?

See? The LT did and the LG L194WT does not. That 'proves' it. One
does, one does not.

Would you care to explain why the LT did?

We are talking about your visual perception difference between two
monitor screens which I cannot see and you want me to explain why your
visual perception in one environment requires a particular kind of
adjustment and not in another.

How zany is that?
