Question about BenQ T2370 Notebook

1 Answer

When clicking the auto adjust button, the screen shrinked.

I have a benq T201WA 20'' monitor and one day i was meant to decrease the brightness when i accidentally pushed the auto adjust button which searches for ideal size and all that. But when it finished my screen was smaller than before. There is a wide black space between the right edge and the screen itself.

I cannot do anything in the monitor settings what will fix this.

Also, the text is a bit warped and fuzzy at some points mainly because the screen is smaller than it should be. And to be clear the screen shrunk from the sides of the screen, and not from the tops.

    I have tried pushing the auto adjust many times after it did this but it just stays the same. I can move the active screen from side to side but there is an about 2 inch black space between the edge and my active screen and this happened after i auto adjusted.

    And yes it is an LCD monitor.

If it is an lcd monitor make sure the refresh rate is set to 60hz and the resolution is at least 1024X768 then try to push auto adjust again. To get to the refresh click on the advanced button when the display properties is open.

Adjusting contrast


Acer is a popular name in the world of both desktop and laptop computers and as a rule these devices are user friendly.
Computer owners may want to make adjustments to their monitors to change the look and feel of the screen.
Every user will have different needs when it comes to viewing the monitor screen, but adjusting the monitor settings to your liking is easy.

Log on to your Acer laptop and click on the "Start" button.
Choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click on the "Display" icon in "Control Panel" and select the "Settings" tab.
Check the "Color Quality" settings and make sure they are set to either medium or high.
The high setting will give you better color quality and contrast, but it will also use more system resources and shorten battery life.
If you are operating on battery power you may want to move the setting to medium.

Hold down the "Fn" key and press the right arrow at the same time.
This key combination will increase the brightness of your screen.
To decrease the brightness and contrast, hold the "Fn" key down and press the left arrow.
Continue using these key combinations until you have found the optimal setting for your laptop display.

How do I turn down brightness on my hp Windows 7 computer?


Hi,

Below are instructions to adjust brightness on HP laptop

    • Press the "Fn" key with the computer turned on and hold the key.

    • Press the "F7" or "F8" key on some HP laptops, which are printed with a small sun icon on the key. The sun icon is filled on the function key for dimming the laptop. The other key is printed with a hollow sun icon for brightening the screen.

    • Press the "Fn" and left arrow keys together on some HP laptops to turn down the brightness. The "Fn" and right arrow key will increase brightness. Press and release the right arrow key repeatedly, while holding down "Fn," to decrease the screen brightness slowly, or hold the keys to darken the screen as low as the setting will go.

  1. For HP Monitors

    • Press and hold the down arrow key on the front panel of the monitor below the screen to turn down the brightness on the external monitor to the lowest setting.


    • Repeatedly press the down arrow button to dim the monitor gradually.


    • Press the up arrow key on the monitor to increase brightness.

Rahul

The monitor screen on the laptop is too dark and and hard to view. what can i do to view it without squinting


On most laptops, there are 2 blue-tinted pictures that may looks like light bulbs or suns located on 2 of the function keys (F1, F2, etc.) that stand for increase and decrease brightness. If you hold the "Fn" key, and start tapping the increase brightness key, the screen should turn brighter. Otherwise, you may be able to adjust screen brightness from Windows, by going to power options (control panel or right click the battery icon in the task bar) or by customizing your desktop (control panel or right click on the desktop).
