Question about Compaq 7500 17" CRT Monitor
My COMPAQ 7500 monitor MenuBar/Brightness Bar keys are not working. Even if I go into the control panel options [in hopes to bypass/ adjust it that way] it does not give me the choice to alter the brightness with a slidding bar [like I have seen others post as examples]. The other night I had dimmed the monitor since it was hurting my eyes. After I had finished typing away [and noting the hour] I shut down my computer for the night - nothing out of the norm. When I woke this morning and started up the ol' computer I notice that the dim setting still remained [granted I hadn't changed it back]. So I clicked the buttons on the face of the monitor to adjust the Menu bar/Brightness bar to get it back up to where it was before. However it tells me it is at 100% [which isn't the case at all]. It will let me dim the screen further but still believes that this 'new' setting is 100%. Have ventured around from site to site trying to find a solution. My screen brightness is a stark contrast to what it used to be and I don't know what to do to fix it. If anyone out there can please help it would be much appreciated!! Much love and thanks for your time! C:

Press on the "Fn," or function, key. It is located in the bottom-left corner of the keyboard, typically next to the "Ctrl," or control, key. Do not depress it.
Press on the "F8" key, which is located in the middle of the Presario's top-most row of keys. You should now be holding down the two keys simultaneously. Small illustrations of a sun and half moon often accompany the F keys allowing you to adjust screen brightness.
Monitor the progress bar that appears on your screen as the brightness increases.
Release the two keys once you have achieved the desired brightness.
