Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
The "-" switch could be dirty, stuck, or shorted out. You may want to press and release that button to see if it will release, and/or if the button has an opening around it (not sealed as in a touch panel type controls), you may spray an electronic grade (non conductive, non residual, non petroleum based) contact cleaner into that area while actuating the switch as the contacts within the switch could be dirty.

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
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.
