Re: screen keeps going bright
I am sorry but this means that the screen might be busted. the impact might have damaged the luminous controller inside the screen. You might need to find a replacement for the screen if that is happening.
I had a similar case where the screen was gng very bright but this was due to a cabling fault of the screen.

Your first step in troubleshooting this problem is to plug in another monitor to your computer. If you are having the same problem it is related to your computer. If the second monitor works fine then your original monitor is shot.
I am not familiar with your particular model, but I do know what the problem is.
The inverter that runs the lights behind the screen is faulty and needs to be repaired. The lights shine from the top and bottom and reflect outwards through the panel so you can see what is on the screen. If you start the computer up, then shine a bright light into the panel you will see an image on the screen, but very feintly.
This can be cheap, it can also be expensive depending on where you go to get it repaired. Call aorund to a few TV shops in your area to get a rough idea on prices.
This is a "feature" they include to prevent accidental changes to the screen setup.
You should be able to unlock the OSD by pushing the Menu button and the right arrow button together for about three seconds. The message "controls unlocked" should appear.

I recently had a similar problem with a MAG LCD monitor. Try the following to see if this resolves your problem:
- set brightness to a lower level. On LCD monitors you can go as low as 0 and still see the screen. With my problem when I set the brightness below 70% the problem went away. A few days later I turned it all the way up to 100% and the problem did not return. However I did not continue to keep it at that level. I found no need for it and find 50% to be exceptable for my needs.
I would say yes it does have something to do with the lamp controler which controls the lamp brightness. I do not know all the technical reasons why a controler starts to have this sort of problem. If your monitor is still under warranty I would take advantage of the free repair otherwise keep the brightness below the level that causes the problem; for me that was under 70 percent.
I hope this solution works for you. Perhaps there are others that can give you all the technical reasons why a controler starts to exhibit this behavior.
