Default weird display problem

ok first off, it would be alot easier to explain if i could take a picture of my desktop. i know youre supposed to hit prtscn and then paste it into paint or something and there it is and i've done this in the past. it just refuses to do this, theres nothing that gets pasted, so if anyone can tell me how to fix that it would help.

anyway, the problem it seems as though my monitor brightens itself whenever i try to start a game. for example, i'll load windows, and i have a visual style where for example this one window is a tannish color. i go to start a game like counter strike, and the game seems white washed and brightend up, then i'll quit and the window that was tannish will be all white and everything seems brightened. its hard to describe but if i could take a screen shot i could give you a before and after. thanks
