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.

Power led brightly on but no display on AOC S5G10


It is understood that your AOC monitor is not working, you had followed troubleshooting steps like connecting VGA and Power cable from monitor to computer and the monitor panel light is ON but still no display. You have tried connecting another monitor and it is working fine, so it is advised to contact AOC support to check if the monitor is under warranty and it can be replaced or repair.

Resolution issues with Acer LCD al 2216w


Possibly this will help. I have installed two1680x1050 LCD screens this past year: your 2216W model on a new PC, and a similar model from another maker on my wife's older HP PC.

Mine worked at the native resolution, my wife's did not. Difference: the age of the computer's (actually Windows XP's) native software for monitors. I went to Control Panel, Display, Advanced, and slid the left-hand slider control to view the various resolutions available. On the newer computer, the highest resolution choice was 1680x1050. On the older computer, the choice was not given. The choices stopped somewhere areound 1270 by 1080.

Solution was to download the newer driver from (as I recall) the computer manufacturer's website, using their regular download/update channel. That gave my wife's older computer the necessary top-end resolution. It was not something the monitor manufacturer could have fixed.

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.
