Family photos indoors

I recently took some family photos inside in living room and I faced a small problem.
No matter what settings I had, image was overexposed. The only setting that worked was
ISO 200
manual flash umbrella with 1/10 power
f 4.5

D700 + 24-70

How come, only this can pull image off? If I raised ISO to 400 it became overexposed. So I stayed with this settings.

Was it because I had only f 4.5? Should f11 or more be better? Was the problem in too birght room? (lights were on)

Can't post images due to privacy... but probably experts will know the problem straight away.

Thanks for help
