    I just installed Tmpgenc Author. Somehow it changed my video monitor's
    brightness to where I can not even hardly see anything on the screen it is
    so dark. I pushed the button on the outside of my monitor to increase the
    brightness. It is now viewable but even at 100% brightness it is still
    dark. Did Tmpgenc change some setting in the Registry or someone else? I
    uninstalled Tmpgenc Author and re-booted but no change. Help!!!

  2. Are you viewing it on a computer screen or a real TV screen?

    Try to go to the advance setting of the video card and look up what gamma
    setting you are at, it should be 1.00 on a pc.

    I am viewing it on the computer screen. Someone suggested the Gamma should
    be 1.0. This may be it. When I go in to my utility to view system
    settings, it says the gamma factor is 2.5. But I can't figure out where to
    go to change it. I go into Control Panel, Display, Setting, Advanced, but
    then I can not find it. I have an ATI Radeon 9000 video card.

    2.5 global setting should be ok, but check in the driver utility itself. In
    advance setting, you should click on the "color" tab and from there be able
    to adjust the gamma, brightness and contrast. I had an aborted install of a
    video game which messed up theses setting before.

    I go into the Color tab and adjust the Brightness, but this is still not
    right. There must be somewhere else that was affected. Any ideas?
