With HDR Enabled in Games on PC Blacks are Grey and colors are Washed out.

I bought a 4K HDR monitor a couple of months ago (The LG 27UK650-W) and connected it to my Windows 10 PC and Xbox One X. Turning on HDR on my Xbox in games such as Mass Effect Andromeda and Forza Horizon 4 which support HDR makes the colors look incredible. However, when connecting my PC (Alienware 17 R4 laptop with a GTX 1080) and turning on HDR in games such as Assassins Creed Origins and COD:Black Ops 4 which both support HDR, the blacks turn into a light grey and the colors look washed out. Is there some setting in windows or in the Nvidia control panel I have to change, the brightness on my monitor is set to 30.

Windows 10 has it's OWN HDR settings. It defaults to ON I believe. Check that. And see if switching it makes a difference.

The default was OFF and switching it to on just made the whole desktop grey and washed out. There was no difference in games, they were still grey and washed out(Using the in game settings to turn on HDR is what made the colors grey and washed out in the first place, the same happens when using the windows HDR setting).

If i remembered correctly, HDR's affect on a game was a mixed bag on a game-by-game basis. Some things it looks great in, some things it looked significantly worse. Same goes for 4k blu-rays in my experience.

No matter what HDR game I play on PC the same thing happens some other examples are Far Cry 5 and Monster Hunter:World.

When changing both of those there is no difference in HDR content.
