Is the desktop ok or is that dark too?
I have never seen colour and brightness options on WMP and therefore think it may be down to something else.

does everyting seem dimmer - have you tried a DVD and seen if thats the same - if it is then WMP is at fault and if not then there may be a problem with the files you are trying to play

Exactly as Dalo says, Lee. Try playing the DVD with some other player. If the video still plays dark, then its either your monitor configuration or a bad DVD. If it is a Windows Media Player specific problem, then the following article might help you out.
