Monitor is too bright

My wife updated the web root program and ever since the display on the monitor is way too bright. The computer is working fine it's just that the display is too bright. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this what happens when a monitor dies?

Lcd monitors do not go overbright due to aging,they may go dim due to backlight aging.Do front panel controls work and if so what happens when you try to bring down brightness?
Some monitors have a "Recall" function which is a factory restore bringing all setting to factory value.
Try this if available.

Settings brightness

Hi which monitor are you using? Connect a different monitor to same system to see if that monitor works correctly with that CPU with same settings or connect your monitor with another CPU which is working properly with different monitor to pinpoint exact problem first. Any monitor if gets old will have such problem. If monitor is okay then you can check if display driver is present or not by going to See how many output connections your monitor has if it has multiple input connections like display port, HDMI, DVI, etc, you can try connecting to different ports if your CPU supports to see which connection gives what type of display.
This video has partial information about display settings. You can right click on desktop and select properties and make it to default settings.

It is probably your the laptop monitor since hooking up an external monitor works fine. You could try reloading or updating the driver to your laptop monitor

Gnr ts700 Screen has gone to the Middle Of the monitor

Did the other monitor have the same problem or was it ok? If it's just the one monitor, it may be on it's way out. It is very dangerous to open a monitor and try to repair it. Don't do it yourself unless you know exactly what you are doing. Have you installed anything new in your pc? What about seeing if there is an updated driver for the monitor? The monitor's website - support page - should have a driver update. See if that works. If you recently installed a graphics program, it could be a setting there that is messing things up.

Monitor won't display resolution properly after Windows Update

I was having the same problem. Believe it or not I fixed it by unplugging the monitor, and when I restarted my PC I again had the 1440 × 900 option.

Problem with display, need help finding what the problem is

I have the same problem with my monitor and it did not happen until windows update started installing a driver---before that my monitor was working fine. (It was on automatic update) I think it is because the new driver sets the monitor at 100hertz and the syncmaster works best at 60 hertz ( I think).

Since I am unable to see anything on the monitor I do not know how to reset this though. I do think if I could get it working at a lower refresh rate then it would work again---damn automatic updates anyway.

I took my puter back to an earlier date before it had upgraded but my monitor still has the line thing going on. Hope someone has some suggestions for this.
