Check your display for the auto setting and engage it that should activate the readjust.
If your monitor is a CTR (TUBE)
It should have the same settings. look at the manual that came with the display.
no manual you can find it on the web.
What ever the display is... google it and chances are you'll hook up.
goodluck

My computer screen is darker than normal. Things are still visable but darker than usual.It is like it is running only on battery power. How do we fix it? It is a dell inspiron 1525.Thanks!


try turning the brightness up on the monitor (stupid thing i know but i have to say it) if that is at maximum but its still very dull... then i dare say you have blown a blobe in the side of the monitor.. or the inverter in the base of the monitor that regulates power to the globes is playing up (but genreally the screen will be almost completely black when that happens) best bet is to try another monitor if you have one.. if its fine with that one then its the monitor! if not then you will probably have to take it to someone to get looked at.

Monitor goes through a rainbow of colors when shut off; till power shut off.


Try your monitor on other desktop or laptop, if the problem persist - change the monitor or borrow one and try it on the same computer as it could be your video card. hope this helps...

I have a shap lcd computer monitor and when i plug it into my computer and turn the power on, the little green power light comes on, screens back. and after 5-10 seconds the light turns orange and blinks...


It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?
