Question about Computers & Internet
So the monitor buttons don't work also right? Yeah, normally you should try to adjust the brightness control first on the monitor. If that doesn't work next step would be ofcourse to check the cabling of the monitor to the computer. Try reseating the video cable from the back of the computer. If no go, then the next step is running the monitor self-test. You can do this by just disconnecting the video cable from the back of the computer, and leaving the monitor plugged into the power outlet.
All monitors has a form of self-test that it does to check the functionality, usually a picture or a color bar display on the screen or even a message that the monitor is on self-test. If it's still dim on that screen, then sadly you already have a hardware problem that may require to you buy a new monitor.
Hope this helps!
