Grey Screen + Can't control units

I was playing AOE DE 2 online for around 2 hours. Suddenly during the game, the screen become dark ( i still can see the game) and i became not able to control any unit or to click anywhere. All what i could see is the game going on.

Any thoughts ?

The game gets unplayable (darker screen)

Hi, guys,
so I was playing with my friend 2v2 ranked game. We played arena and it was 29th minute of game time. Suddenly my screen got darker (see the picture) as I would lower my brightness. I didnt do it though. So I wanted to fix potentially by clicking menu icon. Sadly that escalated into no click or no play possible. My friend could play normally, our opponents probably as well. I couldnt even resign or anything, I had to ALT F4 my game. Does that happen to anyone or does anyone know what to do with that, when that occurs.
Could the problem be my CPU working nearly 100 %? I have around 80 games I think now and it has never happened to me until now. GPU drivers updated.
