    Mine is Acer 19 ". Much too bright. Th ere tailer told me to put resolution at 1280 x 1020. It looked fine in the shop. I changed resolution setting to 1280 x 1024 which is the maximum. Still much too bright for reading documents. They come out in lihjt purle rather than black.

I just bought an Acer 19 inch this morning and I am assuming you have the same controls on the bottom of monitor. On mine I push the menu button twice....the left arrow once to select the brightness slider.....push the menu button again to turn slider red and active...then use your left or right arrows to adjust brightness...afterwards you use the menu to get you back to the exit button and that's it....I hope Don

    I agree that the quick start guide and even the user manual is sadly lacking in concise instructions. I read both and still had to experiment to figure it out.....Good Luck....D on

Turn down the brightness of your monitor. There are touch sensitive buttons beneath the Samsung logo that will adjust things accordingly.

Display hurts my eyes.


It appears that your eyes are struggling to resolve the image on your TV. There are a number of factors that can be causing your problems. The first thing to check is if you have any refractive error. This can be done at an optometrist's office. Some pharmacies also have self diagnostic tools.
Check the distance of your TV. Anything closer than six feet will require that you focus harder to watch TV. This can tire your eyes over time, more so if you are over the age of 40.
Also check the contrast and color balance of the TV. If the light is too dim, or too bright, then this can cause eye strain also. So, in summary, place the TV at a good distance, make sure that the TV is not too bright or dim (white should have about the same brightness as a white piece of paper) and check if you have any refractive error (glasses prescription).

Hi my monitor has bright colours on it and i cant make out what im doin its really bright and hurts my eyes


Turn off the pc but leave the monitor on. unhook the monitor from the pc. the screen SHOULD run a "self test" with a moving white green red blue box. if that box is on a bare black screen and there are no bright spots or cracks or anything weird looking, then the screen itself is ok. If however, you see odd shades of blue and pink and it looks cracked or scratched or has lines in it, then it is time to replace that screen.

I cannot adjust the monitor brightness, it's too dark..


Since this problem was posted generically.. Monitors, whether they are the old tank style CRTs, the newer flat panel LCDs or the newest LEDs, all have 'Brightness' controls. All are typically marked with what looks like a bright, or radiant light bulb, usually offset to one side, to show that "adjusting the ?? that way" will brighten the screen. Most LCDs are now Menu Driven, so looking for a button that says "Menu" is your starting point. You will need to find your adjusting control and the 'light bulb' to figure out which way to brighten or dim your screen. Once found, adjust to eye pleasing brightness. If your brightness is at 100%, you are on your way to needing a new or used monitor. Typically, there is no Brightness settings in the operating system. Your enhanced video card maybe doing it to you, They usually have their own control center and the types of abilities vary greatly. If you hav a friend that can loan you a monitor, borrow it to test at least the output your monitor is receiving. That will tell you whether you are having a problem with your video card or your monitor.
