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).

Brightness/contrast locked


All computer monitors, whether they are LCD or CRT style, have a built-in feature called the on-screen display (OSD) lockout that prevents users from viewing any images on the monitor. If your computer screen has accidentally been set to the OSD lockout setting, there are several ways you can remove the lockout.

Power off your computer and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back side of the computer case. Reattach the cable and make sure the pins are correctly screwed in. Power the computer back on and check to see if the OSD lockout message is still being displayed. Check the manual that came with your computer or monitor and locate the troubleshooting section if you are still receiving the OSD lockout message. Find the OSD lockout heading and read the method that your particular model uses to remove the lockout. Attempt generic lockout removal procedures if you no longer have the manual that came with your monitor. Press and hold the "Menu" button located at the bottom of your monitor for 15 seconds and wait to see if the OSD lockout message disappears. Press the "Menu" button again if the lockout message remains on the screen. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options. Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings. Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lockout.

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
