Display menu virus? :(

The moment i turned on my pc, i saw CONTRAST 100 right before my eyes. Its set into 100 and i cant change it nor let it go. I tried pressing the Menu Roller panel but it wont change at all. Then it suddenly returned into the menu and it changes my MOnitor display setting by itself and i cant control it. I dunno if its a virus but the moment i boot up, its display's setting is Contrast 100. HELP!!

Try disconnecting your network cable and adjust the settings again, if you cant, enter safe mode by pressing f8 in the startup and select safemode then adjust the contrast there.

Or is this in the CRT monitor? inside the monitor? there are no viruses ever made for monitors. So its most likely a hardware fault in the crt. Maybe its time to buy a new one. LCD preferably easyer on your eyes.

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

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.



Thanks....

How can i turn down contrast on my laptop


Acer Aspire one

Brightness is controlled by the Fn and arrow keys.

Contrast can be controlled from the software.


FN key, + left/right arrow key's


other Acers

Log on to your Acer laptop and click on the "Start" button. Choose "Control Panel" from the menu.


Double-click on the "Display" icon in "Control Panel" and select the "Settings" tab.

Check the "Color Quality" settings and make sure they are set to either medium or high.


The high setting will give you better color quality and contrast, but it will also use more system resources and shorten battery life.


If you are operating on battery power you may want to move the setting to medium.


Hold down the "Fn" key and press the right arrow at the same time.

This key combination will increase the brightness of your screen.


To decrease the brightness and contrast, hold the "Fn" key down and press the left arrow. Continue using these key combinations until you have found the optimal setting for your laptop display.


hope this helps

Adjust your monitor's brightness and contrast

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.)

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.


Laptop display. Laptop displays don't have brightness or contrast buttons on the front.

For a majority of laptops, there isn't a control for setting the contrast.


However, you can set the brightness of many laptops by pressing and holding the Fn key, and then pressing a function key to decrease brightness ( ) or increase brightness ( ).

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Calibrate-your-display#

When using Display Color Calibration on a laptop, set the display to the maximum brightness setting.


Adjusting brightness automatically using adaptive brightness

Adaptive brightness is a feature in Windows that uses a light sensor to automatically adjust the display brightness to match the lighting conditions in your computer's surroundings.


To use adaptive brightness, you must have light sensors installed and enabled on your computer.


To determine if your laptop or computer monitor supports adaptive brightness, look for the Enable adaptive brightness setting in Power Options (mentioned in the following procedure) or check the information that came with your computer.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off

Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.


Under any plan, click Change plan settings.

Click Change advanced power settings.

In the list, expand Display, and then expand Enable adaptive brightness.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is running on battery power, click On battery, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is plugged into an outlet, click Plugged in, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

Click Apply. Click OK.

MONITOR MENU EXIT BUTTON ARE NOT WORKING


This is the exact same problem which I am facing at this moment. I opened the Case of the monitor. I saw that there are 2 small buttons with a extended rod attached which goes into the buttons on the Monitors body. I saw the Contrast button is stuck. I also saw that the monitor pads and the monitor sensor board has complete rust. I think I have to change the button pads and the Monitor Board. The same thing I am seeing in your case. I think this is a cause of Excessive moisture content in the air which is causing rust and jamming of Buttons.
I think now you can get what to do.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Desktop is continuing to display contrast as 100


Dear mahendra

Welcome to Fixya Customer support

This is common problem observed in many monitors compaq,HP,IBM this is happens mainly in rainy season due to moisture,by this moisture monitor botton circuit get rust inside and button pad remain pressed. so it shows a strip at the middle of monitor like contrast or brightness. So this is minor problem just replace the monitor display control button sensor or circuit.It deffinately solves your problem.

Good Luck

My 7 yr. old son, somehow, turned my screen black, with white print. It's very ******* the eyes. I've gone into easy access and nothing is checked off, but the black screen remains,,,,HELp!!!!!


I have a feeling he turned on high contrast mode (supposedly it's meant to make reading the screen easier for people who are disabled, I think it just hurts everyone's eyes). To change that, right click on your desktop and go to appearance and click on the top pulldown menu and select windows xp style. Hopefully that will fix it.
