Question about Acer 17" AL1706B LCD Monitor

Open Question

Hard to read type on screen--grey type "disappears"

I can't figure out how to make the type on screen more visible. So many sites use grey or pale coloured text and is it almost invisible on my screen. Any suggestions? I have tried increasing the contrast and playing with the brightness but with no improvement in the contrast factor.

SOURCE: Monitor too bright

Your video card (or driver) is probably to blame.
Try hooking a new monitor up to the computer to test this.
If so, try the advanced settings in control panel. Many cards give you the ability to manually alter the picture.

If that doesn't fix it, replace the card.

Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.
