How do you adjust brightness on a Gateway ZX4971. There are no buttons on the monitor.


My Gateway monitor instructions refer to buttons located on the right side. The procedure calls for pressing the Auto button first to set the display image for the current screen resolution then pressing the Menu button to open the on-screen display (OSD) menu. You can move through the OSD menu to select parameters such as Picture (brightness).

Compaq monitor auto adjusting


Press the button labeled "Auto" on the front of your Compaq monitor. This runs an automatic configuration utility designed to examine your current settings and adjust them to reach the best possible picture quality.

This utility will take only a few seconds and will adjust things like the sharpness, brightness and resolution of the image being displayed. Press the "Menu" button on the front of your Compaq monitor to adjust your monitor's screen settings manually in the event that the auto configuration utility has not done so to your liking.

Navigate to the "Picture" category of your Compaq monitor's on-screen menu to adjust settings like "Brightness" and "Sharpness." These settings can be useful if your monitor is displaying an image that is fuzzy or too dim.

Use the "Color" setting to adjust the amount of red, green and blue that your monitor displays. These settings can be useful if your monitor is displaying too much of one color or not enough of another.

Use the "Default" menu option to reset your Compaq monitor to its original factory settings. This changes any settings you have altered back to the way they were set when the monitor left the Compaq factory

hope this helps

My display resolutin is too small, thatswy my screen shows very small as compared to monitor size....!! what can i do? the H size and V size is correct..!!


You probably know about adjusting the monitor display size by right clicking on a blank area of the desktop, choosing properties, settings and moving the slider towards the left. 800x600 will make everything very large. (XP instructions)

You can also get there via the control panel, display, settings.

While on that page, you can click appearance and change icon size.

Blue green screen on my desktop. Autofocus on my desktop doesn't work.


Where did you try to adjust the color?  In display properties, or on the monitor controls?  Make sure both have green at a normal level.  Then, make sure your cabling is OK.  Then, try a different video source for the monitor and see if that fixes it; if it doesn't, you get to repair the monitor.  If it does, you can just reinstall the video drivers on the PC.

DIM LCD


TWO WAYS TO TURN IT UP
1. Use the menu on the monitor to turn up the volume
2. right click anywhere on the desktop- select properties - select the "settings tab" at the top - click on the "advanced" button. this will open your video cards display settings .
you will need to look for a brightness controll or color corection section to adjust the brightness as all video cards have different software for controll.
Gamma will increase you brightness also. a ballance od gamma and brightness is neccessary, so change em both small amounts , then check your desktop or applications, then re-adjust.
This should Fixya up ! Please rate.....

My acer laptop with windows xp will not allow me to select the optimal resolution for my samsung moniter. How do I fix this?


The Samsung SyncMaster 730b is a 17-inch analog and digital TFT-LCD monitor delivering crisp, clean text and bright, vivid colors. This display offers a 600:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 1280 x 1024 resolution, 160/160 degree viewing angle, scanning frequency of 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical and 0.294mm pixel pitch
The SyncMaster 730b display offers the option of using either a digital or analog interface for viewing images and text. The Digital Video Interface (DVI) ensures a shaper, cleaner image and a more accurate representation of the original video source. Since video starts out digital in a PC graphics card, the digital output is directly interfaced to the digital input of the LCD panel and always provides the optimum quality image. In addition, no adjustments are required with a digital display, even when randomly changing resolutions. Input connectors for this display include 15-pin D-sub and DVI-D. Available in black, the SyncMaster 730b delivers a maximum of 16.2 million colors. The monitor is Windows Plug and Play DDC 2B compatible
The important stuff here would be the following:
(1) 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical
(2) SyncMaster 730b delivers a maximum of 16.2 million colors
(3) 1280 x 1024 resolution
nVidia card settings should not exceed these monitor parameters. The monitor is not designed for more performance output without increasing liability toward failure. ?. Put your card settings, under the nVidia tab, at the following:
(a) Refresh rate set at 75 Hz
(b) Set colors at 16 million
(c) Set resolution slightly less than 1280 x 1024
It?s quite possible your monitor is at fault, but start with its optimal parameter settings for the display card first. The display card probably exceeds the monitor?s capabilities. Hopefully, this will stabilize your PC session and the blank outs cease if hardware is not faulty

Tha display screen is dark, shows very faintly.


Can you be more specific ?
The first step is to isolate the system at fault:
1) Monitor hardware ?
Test it on another PC or
Try a different monitor on the same PC
Check monitor adjustments.
Check the video cable, try another one.

2) What kind of a monitor is it?
CRT (like and old TV) or an LCD flat screen

3) Video card problem, possible but not as likely

4) Video driver or operating software settings issue
wrong video mode, video settings the monitor can't handle,
incorrect device driver

lots of possibilities here.
