Re: Brightness controls

Unfortunately, the x2gen company has declared bankruptcy and gone out of business due to legal trouble ( Manuals are no longer available online.

Unless you can find someone who can read the menus for you, or has an old manual laying around, I can pose a couple alternative, albeit tedious, solutions.

Using you can translate your menu... that is, you can type "BRIGHTNESS" in English, and request the Japanese translation. Locate the text in the menu that matches the translation. Tedious, yes, but it would work. To use this for non-arabic based character sets, you will need to install a Japanese font on your system, otherwise the text will return as "?????" question marks (in place of each Japanese character).

Another alternative would be to take a photograph of your menu screen and submit it to a forum to have an online user do the translation for you...

Just some ideas - hopefully you can make some progress...

I have an old X2Gen MG19MY flat panel monitor with no drivers

It may be that you just need to download drivers for the monitor from manufacturer web site, and insstall. depending on how old the system is, video card may not be able to handle the operating system if it is using shared memory with the video card. Not enough info. did it all work on the previous operating system, and what resolution did it run at. for more info, to help with problem.

good luck

There should be a VGA port on the side of your laptop so you can plug the monitors cable into your laptop.
But I can tell you more if you give me the model numbers of the laptop and monitor.

Monitor is to bright

Your monitor has brightness and contrast controls either on the bottom or the right side. Sometimes you have to push the menu button and then scroll to the proper setting. If this is the case, there will be an "up" and a "down" button to use.
Once you are in the correct menu, you will have to push the menu button or the enter button to activate the setting. This all depends on the monitor model.
