Question about Acer AL1715 (Black, Silver) 17" LCD Monitor
For some reason my monitor is glowing white fuzz over the entire display uniformly. The contrast and brightness are totally screwed up. I can still see the picture although I can barely do so without adjusting the contrast and brightness, and even afterwards the picture still looks like I have battery acid in my eyes. In order to properly read anything or see the mouse and cursor, I have to turn the contrast all the way down and turn up the brightness. I've updated the drivers for my graphics card (raddeon 9550) Tried using the catalyst control center software as well as adobe gamma to adjust gamma levels and brightness and contrast levels, and even tried using powerstrip (software that came with my alienware comp) and it's worthless. I'm assuming it's a hardware issue now for obvious reasons. I've checked the pins in the cable and they're fine. I'm out of warranty too, which is wonderful. So after all of this I'm thinking that my monitor is pretty much done for or that my graphics card is shot. I really don't want to bring it in and pay 100 bucks for someone to tell me to buy a new monitor. Please let me know if there's anything else I can do before I set this thing on fire and desecrate it's remains. Thank you so much.

Tips for a great answer:
You can adjust the
brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and
to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.
To improve the results
when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use
Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these
color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display
color in Windows,
see Calibrate your display.
The way you adjust
brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.
Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast
controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following
On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some
displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and
contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by
pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.
