LE40B650T2W too colorful in FullHD

I got this great LE40B650T2W for christmas, and it's so great ! I didn't believe that I could get such quality for such a price!
Now the only problem I have is that the monitor seems to switch to a special mode whenever I get near the FullHD resolution.

I'm using it as a monitor for my computer, it's connected via HDMI and whenevr i change the desktop resolution/fullscreen resolution of a game, it suddenly has a very bright mode with a high contrast.
I bet it would be nice for movies (even though I already get headaches after like 10 seconds because it's just too bright. Also it's a disadvantage in games, because mouse and keyboard lose reaction by it.

The little info box at the top left tells me I use HDMI3/DVI slot in 1920x1080 @60Hz mode

I tried out lower Desktop settings:
1776x1000 gives me a 1920x1080i @60Hz -mode, very bright again.
1680x1050 gives me 1680x1050 @60Hz -mode, with a normal setting, it's not that bright anymore (which is what i want for the FullHD mode).

If this is any important: I use an Ati Sapphire Radeon HD4870 1GB, it's able to display that resolution.

I hope someone can help me, thanks in advance!

Awesome, it worked, thank you so much !! Now the colors are all normal again. I didn't use dynamic mode by the way.

Have a nice day

My PC is connected via VGA, but the Tools menu has Picture Options to change the screen display (Dynamic, Standard and Movie, IIRC). If the display is too bright, you may have Dynamic selected. I imagine these options can be set separately for each source, including HDMI ones.
