Hi, If you are comfortable working with tools, down to component level and know how to work around EHV areas, then it is possible to increase the brightness of any monitor including the Compaq S510. Make sure that the unit is unplug, Open the back cover and locate the FBT. You have to run/power on/attach a running PC to the unit with the cover off. Extreme care must be exercised. If you are not sure, you're better off asking a qualified service professional to do the adjustment. There two plastic slotted adjustables, focus & screen. Adjusting the screen changes the screen voltage going to the CRT. This will make the display go very dark or overly too bright. Adjust to your preference (not necessarily technically correct) The focus may also be adjusted this way. You have to run the unit with the back cover open for a couple of minutes to stabilize the voltages and the heater/CRT/ Adjust after a couple of minutes if necessary. In other monitors, there is a trimpot (small variable resistor) the adjusts the sub-bright. Further improvement maybe achieved by adding a 100uF/250V capacitor across the supply of the 70+VDC of the 3 gun transistors. If you are sure how to go about this, it is best to consult or seek the services of a qualified TV technician who can either show where and how or do the job himself. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

Have you tried using the Degauss option?

Press the Menu button on your Monitor and go to the Special Section. You should be able to find the degauss option there. Not sure it will work but its worth a try.

LG Flatiron monitors.1st one on Dell pc works great. 2nd one in same household to Compaq pc still flashes faint pink on parts that should be white.

Probably just some color balance is of. Reset white to something different on the compaq. Try downloading nvidia-settings and see what happens when you mess with color balances. Mess around with some settings til it looks right, or see if you can reset the white balance to a different preset on the monitor's menu

When I turn on my computer, i can hardly see a thing.

Problem is with the backlights. They are long fluorescent tubes usually on the top and bottom of the lcd screen. Most of the time the inverter (the small board that develops several hundred volts to power the light) has failed.

Failure of inverter can (but not always) be helped along with weak florescent (cold cathode) tubes. (caused by use, old age)

Need to swipe-out pc

there's a couple things you can do...

you can contact HP/Compaq and order replacement recovery discs.. visit this link for more info

you can try running ubuntu on your computer, its pretty easy to install and its really neat. its very different from windows however but it works great. best of all its FREE!

of course you can look filesharing sites for copies of Windows XP or Vista (wink wink), but i can't help you with that since its agains't FixYa's piracy policy and i don't want trouble.
