Question about Gateway FPD 1730 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor For some reason, one day the screen darkened. You can see everything but it is not very bright and starts to hurt your eyes after awhile. Now, I can press the up arrow button on the monitor itself and it will brighten up the way that it should be but will not stay that way. All the other buttons on the monitor itself don't seem to do anything.

This is a setting on the system. What computer are you using. The settings might be changed in the control panel if you are using XP

Hi my monitor has bright colours on it and i cant make out what im doin its really bright and hurts my eyes


Turn off the pc but leave the monitor on. unhook the monitor from the pc. the screen SHOULD run a "self test" with a moving white green red blue box. if that box is on a bare black screen and there are no bright spots or cracks or anything weird looking, then the screen itself is ok. If however, you see odd shades of blue and pink and it looks cracked or scratched or has lines in it, then it is time to replace that screen.

The screen is to bright and wont darken enough


It is likely the video card on the actual unit. If it is under warranty they will likely have you ship it back to them for either 1) repair or 2)replacement

Too bright


I just bought an Acer 19 inch this morning and I am assuming you have the same controls on the bottom of monitor. On mine I push the menu button twice....the left arrow once to select the brightness slider.....push the menu button again to turn slider red and active...then use your left or right arrows to adjust brightness...afterwards you use the menu to get you back to the exit button and that's it....I hope Don
