It once happened that many programs were running simultaneously in my pc but all these programs were running normally,
- Youtube Video
- Ubuntu Software
- Brave & Firefox and
- VS Code

And at some point when the battery turned out to be low, I charged it again but there seems to be an overlay .. Something like a dimmer sheet on the main screen, (I can say this coz my mouse pointer is visible at accurate brightness, the brightness at which I see my BIOS screen)

This all happened on Friday, which turned out to be normal after several restarts and some codes which I don't remember, Now this happened again Today(Sunday) and is not getting back to normal after several attempts..

Thank you very much for reading this.
