G751JM Screen is too dark in game to play anything.

So, when in game (WoW), the screen on this laptop is SO dark. It's totally normal otherwise. In this picture, the screen brightness is set to the highest setting. There are no brightness settings in game, but I've never had to use any...until now. Is there any way to fix this?

delete all about Nvidia and install clear.

Open the ASUS Gaming Center app and go to the Gaming Profile Settings. Check to see if different Splendid settings help.

Edit: The splendid settings didn't help.

Changing the colour temp did a bit, but that also makes all of the colours off.

Those settings in the Nvidia control panel were missing prior to downloading the newest driver (right out of the box) and they are still missing after updating it.

I can try again after work though.

So on other people's 751JMs those settings should be there and no one else is really having this darkness issue? It's only noticeable in game or when watching a dark video. Otherwise, the whites are really bright and everything is fine.

I called Asus back and they had me test it on a different game. The only thing that made a slight difference was putting the splendid settings on Normal, but even then it was too dark. The dark colours all blend together to make a big black shady area that you can't really see in. He then said it may be an lcd issue. I might just exchange the laptop and try again since I have owned it for less than three days. Seems like trouble.

I ended up returning the first one and getting a second one. I got it home, and it has exactly the same problem. No difference. There honestly has to be something I am missing. Is this really the only stuff that is supposed to be in my Nvidia control panel? It was the same on both laptops: http://i.imgur.com/uSqOW9y.jpg

Hey I’m having the same exact issue 

the display is already bright but the dark parts have some kind of blocky feel to it

Increase your device's brightness if it works.
