By initiating the on screen menu, you navigate to the brihghtness etc.This can also be related to contrast. Get a keyboard with zoom keys that will make it east to enlarge text.Mine is a logitech wireless S510 and its a great bargain and comes with mouse.the best solution is, however to buy a 42 inch or larger display and use that as you monitor. I can never go back!

Hi,my name is amitabh. my monitor is compaq 5500 CRT. i want to know about the vga cable in monitor?


With manufacturing improving, LCD panel sizes continue to get larger all while prices keep dropping. Retailers and manufacturers throw around a lot of numbers and terms to describe their products. So, how does one know what all these mean? This article looks to cover the basics so one can make an informed decision when buying an LCD monitor.
Screen Size The screen size is the measurement of the displayable area of the screen from the lower corner to the opposite upper corner of the display. LCD's typically gave their actual measurements but they are now rounding those numbers. Be sure to find the real dimensions typically referred to as the actual screen size whenever looking at a LCD.
Aspect Ratio The aspect ratio refers to the number of horizontal pixels to vertical pixels in a display. Traditional displays used a 4:3 aspect ratio. Most new monitors use either a 16:10 or 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. The 16:9 is the ratio typically used for HDTVs. There are even a few ultra wide or 2:1 aspect ratio monitors on the market but they aren't very common.
Native Resolutions All LCD screens can actually display only a single given resolution referred to as the native resolution. This is the physical number of horizontal and vertical pixels that make up the LCD matrix of the display. Setting a computer display to a resolution lower than this resolution will cause extrapolation. This extrapolation attempts to blend multiple pixels together to produce a similar image to what you would see if the monitor were to display it at the given resolution but it can result in fuzzy images.
Here are some of the common native resolutions found in LCD monitors:
  • 17" (Widescreen): 1280x800 (WXGA)
  • 19" (Widescreen): 1440x900 (WXGA+)
  • 21" (Widescreen): 1600x900 (WSXGA+)
  • 22" (Widescreen): 1920x1080 (WUXGA)
  • 24" (Widescreen): 1920x1080 (WUXGA)
  • 27" (Widescreen): 2560x1440 (WQHD)
  • 30" (Widescreen): 2560x1600
Panel Coatings This is something that most people don't think about much primarily because the market may not give them much choice. The coatings of the display panel fall into two categories: glossy or anti-glare. The majority of monitors for consumers use a glossy coating. This is done because it tends to show off colors better in low light conditions. The downside is that in brighter light it generates glare and reflections. You can tell most monitors with glossy coatings either through the use of glass on the outside front of the monitor or through terms such as crystal to describe the filters. Business oriented monitors tend to come with anti-glare coatings. These have a film over the LCD panel that helps reduces reflections. It will slightly mute the colors but they are much better in bright lighting conditions such as offices with overhead flourescent lighting.
A good way to tell which type of coating will work best for your LCD monitor is to do a small test where the computer is going to be used. Take a small piece of glass such as a picture frame and place it where the monitor would be with the lighting that will be used when the computer is. If you see a lot of reflections or glare off the glass, it is best to get an anti-glare coated screen. If you don't have the reflections and glare, then a glossy screen will work fine.
Contrast Ratio Contrast ratios are a big marketing tool by the manufacturers and one that is not easy for consumers to grasp. Essentially, this is the measurement of the difference in brightness from the darkest to brightest portion on the screen. The problem is that this measurement will vary throughout the screen. This is due to the slight variations in the lighting behind the panel. Manufacturers will use the highest contrast ratio they can find on a screen, so it is very deceptive. Basically a higher contrast ratio will mean that the screen will tend to have deeper blacks and brighter whites. Look for the typical contrast ratio which is around 1000:1 rather than dynamic numbers.
Color Gamut Each LCD panel will vary slightly in how well they can reproduce color. When an LCD is being used for tasks that require a high level of color accuracy, it is important to find out what the panel's color gamut is. This is a description that lets you know how wide a range of color the screen can display. The larger the percentage of NTSC, the greater level of color a monitor can display. It is somewhat complex and best described in my article on Color Gamuts. Most basic consumers LCDs range from 70 to 80 percent of NTSC.
Response Times In order to achieve the color on a pixel in an LCD panel, a current is applied to the crystals at that pixel to change the state of the crystals. Response times refer to the amount of time it takes for the crystals in the panel to move from an on to off state. A rising response time refers to the amount of time it takes to turn on the crystals and the falling time is the amount of time it takes for the crystals to move from an on to off state. Rising times tend to be very fast on LCDs, but the falling time tends to be much slower. This tends to cause a slight blurring effect on bright moving images on black backgrounds. The lower the response time, the less of a blurring effect there will be on the screen. Most response times now refer to a gray to gray rating that generates a lower time than the traditional full on to off state response times.
Viewing Angles LCD's produce their image by having a film that when a current runs through the pixel, it turns on that shade of color. The problem with the LCD film is that this color can only be accurately represented when viewed straight on. The further away from a perpendicular viewing angle, the color will tend to wash out. The LCD monitors are generally rated for their visible viewing angle for both horizontal and vertical. This is rated in degrees and is the arc of a semicircle whose center is at the perpendicular to the screen. A theoretical viewing angle of 180 degrees would mean that it is fully visible from any angle in front of the screen. A higher viewing angle is preferred over a lower angle unless you happen to want some security with your screen. Note that the viewing angles still may not translate fully to a good quality image but one that is viewable.
Connectors Most LCD panels have an analog and a digital connector on them. The analog connector is the VGA or DSUB-15. HDMI is now becoming the most common digital connector thanks to its adoption in HDTVs. DVI was previously most popular computer digital interface. DisplayPort and its mini version are now becoming more popular for high end graphics displays. Thunderbolt is Apple and Intel's new connector that is fully compatible with the DisplayPort standards. Check to see what type of connector your video card can use before buying a monitor to ensure you get a compatible monitor. You still may be able to use a monitor with a different connector than your video card by using adapters but they can get fairly expensive. Some monitors may also come with home theater connectors including component, composite and S-video.
Stands Many people don't consider the stand when purchasing a monitor but it can make a huge difference. There are typically four different types of adjustment: height, tilt, swivel and pivot. Many less expensive monitors only feature the tilt adjustment. Height, tilt and swivel are generally the critical types of adjustments allowing for the greatest flexibility when using the monitor in the most ergonmoic fashion.

Hi, I just bought a new lcd tv and the picture is great when you look straight at it, but if you look at it from an angle it turns like a photo negative. Please help

Hi nothing you can do about that - sounds reminiscent of the old school LCD computer monitors/ laptop screens. the LCD technology has advanced significanty to170 degree viewing angles to all but eliminate this artefact.

How do I adjust the angle of my HP LE1901 monitor?

mcdevito75 here, Most Monitors will angle some what for ease of viewing by simply angleing by hand pressure, secure your monitor at the 3 and 9 O"clock position with your hands and see if this helps. Look at the base and back of your monitor for any levers, or knobs to loosen so you can adjust the angle. Remember you may not be able to angle your monitor and if not, you may have to use a better chair.
