Dear User...

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 image.

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.

Samsung 920WM monitor - Color problems, "blotches"

The 920WM has a recommended resolution of 1440x900. If your display properties are set to a higher or lower resolution, there will be ugly effects on videos, photos and fine text.

If you're running WindowsXP, minimize your apps and web browser so you can see the background.
Right-click on the background and select "Properties" to bring up the display properties dialog.
In that dialog, select the "Settings" tab to see the display resolution.
Set that to 1440x900 if it's not already, then hit "OK"

If videos are still blotchy, then check the video playback software to make sure it's not setting it's own resolution.

If that helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me.

If not, use "add comment" to fill in some more details (XP or Vista? What's the video playback software called? How are you viewing pictures?) and I'll do my best to help!

If you mean just for your internet browser window, hold CTRL and scroll your mouse scroll wheel.

If you don't have scroll wheel on your mouse, and you are using Internet Explorer, go to the view menu, then to TEXT SIZE.

If you want to make the letters on your desktop and desktop windows bigger, go to:

display properties -> settings tab -> advanced -> increase the dpi setting

Or decrease your resolution, right click on your desktop, click properties, then click the settings tab and lower your resolution.

Hope this helps!

If Blue colors display properly in pictures or graphics check the display and size settings of your computer in relation to the size monitor.

If there is a problem with the blue color because of a problem with the monitor you might be able to compensate for it either with controls on the monitor or with the control software of your video card.
