    Look in advanced settings of your display properties.
    Click on GeForce 5200 and select Color Correction.

    You need to adjust your Gamma setting. You should be able to do this in individual games, but if it is wrong in all your games this is the place to start.

    do what livy said and also make sure the brightness and contrast are up on your monitors settings; although im sure youve thought of this.
