    I have tried this already. The only options I have in the nvidia control panel is 3d settings or display. After clicking on display, the only option is "multiple displays" and under that, change display configuration. There doesnt seem to be an option to adjust desktop color settings. Could it be somewhere else?

Try going to control panel, then device manager, and try right clicking and updating all drivers that have to do with graphics or your screen. If this doesn't do the trick then try finding the display drivers manually.

You will not find contrast controls for most laptops. This is a funtion that you found on most desktop CRT monitors. However, xp and vista has some features on smoothing and such of your viewing icons in the basic right click on desktop/select properties

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.

Adjust your monitor's brightness and contrast

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.)

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 image.

Brightness and contrast symbols

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.


Laptop display. Laptop displays don't have brightness or contrast buttons on the front.

For a majority of laptops, there isn't a control for setting the contrast.


However, you can set the brightness of many laptops by pressing and holding the Fn key, and then pressing a function key to decrease brightness ( ) or increase brightness ( ).

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Calibrate-your-display#

When using Display Color Calibration on a laptop, set the display to the maximum brightness setting.


Adjusting brightness automatically using adaptive brightness

Adaptive brightness is a feature in Windows that uses a light sensor to automatically adjust the display brightness to match the lighting conditions in your computer's surroundings.


To use adaptive brightness, you must have light sensors installed and enabled on your computer.


To determine if your laptop or computer monitor supports adaptive brightness, look for the Enable adaptive brightness setting in Power Options (mentioned in the following procedure) or check the information that came with your computer.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off

Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.


Under any plan, click Change plan settings.

Click Change advanced power settings.

In the list, expand Display, and then expand Enable adaptive brightness.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is running on battery power, click On battery, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is plugged into an outlet, click Plugged in, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

Click Apply. Click OK.


hope this helps

How to increase the brightness of my hp compaq lap top


There should be brightness controls on the keyboard. Look for a key with the image of a 'sun' or 'light' symbol.

How can I adjust the contrast on my laptop, I can't see very well


Hold the Fn key down, then press the Right Side Arrow key to increase brightness. (Bottom of keyboard, 5th key from the right)

Granted, that doesn't increase the contrast, it increases the Brightness.
Should the brightness not increase to a level that you feel is comfortable, then I suggest you have a Backlight, or Inverter going bad.

Screen display


It's hard to find a Compaq manual their site, but they indicate you'll find this in the help files on your computer.
This is usually done with a combination of keys-look for the Fn key and a key that looks like a sun symbol. It may have an arrow pointing up or down. Use these keys together to change the brightness.
