Question about picture brightness

When I take pictures they look well and lighted on the camera's screen, but when I transfer them to my computer they look really dark. Am I doing something wrong or is this normal? And too fix this should I just take really bright pictures?

I think it's normal. You can either increase the exposure compensation in your camera or you can edit it (brightness) in your computer.

Yeah, this happened while taking pictures at night without flash... To make them look like in the camera (brightness wise) I have to increase their brightness with the kodak software ...

You monitor may not be calibrated correctly.
You may not have exposed your sensor for long enough.

try to adjust light exposure on your software.

That looks like a normal exposure for inside with available light (no flash) to me. It isn't bright but for what and where it is it is okay. When you shoot in that manner yours lens goes to the widest opening so the resulting image is usually not the best possible.

There is software to help you tweak your monitor. Or you can tweak your exposure settings as mentioned above. I almost never go more that .5 in either direction.
