Try going to your control panel and then to display settings and adjusting your settings from there. If that doesnt work then i'd get a new graphics card. It may also be the VGA cable you are using. Try using a different one

I have a dell Dimension 2300 and the images are very dark. I don't think it is from the monitor.


Try these steps: 1. Check the monitor settings. Access the On Screen Display (OSD) Menu System. Adjust the contrast and brightness using the control buttons in the monitor.
2. Run the monitor self test. Unplug the video cable from the computer (cable from monitor to the back of the computer). Usually it has a blue or white connector. Turn on the monitor alone. It should display the self test pattern (white, red, green & blue). If the images are dark in the self test, it is a problem with the monitor.
2. Rotate the monitor to face a different direction. This will help in eliminating sunlight glare which can cause poor picture quality.
3. Test your computer using another working monitor. If the problem occurs in a known good monitor, then it is a video card or motherboard (if your video card is integrated) problem.
I hope these options help.

LCD back light is off or very dim


I changed monitors and it works??? What worked. Did the brightness appear? Is the monitor now functioning properly?

If not, monitors can have increase brightness by using the menu settings. The settings can be accessed by the buttons that are usually below the monitor screen on the front under panel. Adjust the brightness from there.

If that fails then change the monitor. That you are suggesting that the backlight is out, I am assuming that you have a flatpanel monitor and not a CRT. Either can be configured the same way using the menu buttons; however, the back light issues are different in the two types of monitor.

Good Luck

My windows XP opens at half screen


dont know what kind of monitor you have but there should be some buttons on it to adjust things like contrast, brightness, screen size etc.. try that first

if not go to--

start -> control panel -> display -> settings -> advanced -> there should be a tab for your graphics driver software in there. try changing the screen size

On the side of the monitor are 6 little buttons. What is the function of each of these buttons.

The buttons are described on page 6 of the manual.

1.
Power On/Off button and indicator LED.
Green: Normal.
Orange: Power Saving.
Off: Power Off.

2.
Enter and exit the OSD menu.

3. O/>
•* Quick brightness adjustment and increase contrast/brightness.
•* Move selection right when OSD is displayed.

4. O/<
•* Quick contrast adjustment and decrease contrast/brightness.
•* Move selection left when OSD is displayed.

5 Auto/▼
• *Automatically optimize positions, phase, and clock when OSD is not displayed.
• *Move selection down when OSD is displayed.

6 Turbo/▲ •
*Switch between picture, text and economy modes.
• *Move selection up when OSD is displayed.

Tc1100 tablet PC. The jog dial, which is used to change the backlight level works only to lower the level of the light. The jog dial will not go up. The jog dial is also used to move web pages up and down....


Did you check the settings with the applet for "Tablet and buttons" (from the control panel)?
Did you install anything recently or make any other system changes?
Perhaps a rollback (system recovery) might fix the problem. This works the majority of the time.
dont give up...it may take three or four restore attemps before you find one that works..pick a recent date from when it was working correctly and restore to then, if it doesnt work go back a few days earlier.


The drivers for the buttons would be:
Tablet PC Button Driver version 1.00 B (8 Nov 03)
SP24241

Adjusting contrast


Hello Tcwills, contrast settings are a feature of your display (not the PC). Laptops will have contrast controls as their display is built in.
