Question about Acer 17" AL1706B LCD Monitor
I can't figure out how to make the type on screen more visible. So many sites use grey or pale coloured text and is it almost invisible on my screen. Any suggestions? I have tried increasing the contrast and playing with the brightness but with no improvement in the contrast factor.
Hello LaURA, THIS IS COMMON.
NO pc STATED,,just and external monitor.
VGA or DVI- cable?
first off it is old and tubby square 4:5 screen
13 year old it fact. 2005 made, and has CCLF backlamps back then,, all did,. then.
and all are dead now or:
1: dim. (your Grey)
2: yellow for white screens.
3: intermittent. (or strobes)
all are. if used for 8hours a day for 5 years.
so in your case you are lucky it works at all.
buy a monitor for less than cost of repairs.
Your exact monitor working sells for $10 on fleabay,.
the below link proves you can buy one cheaper
that the repair of yours, $150 at least to repair
$40 to buy, easy econ101 decision?

SOURCE: Monitor too bright
Your video card (or driver) is probably to blame.
Try hooking a new monitor up to the computer to test this.
If so, try the advanced settings in control panel. Many cards give you the ability to manually alter the picture.
If that doesn't fix it, replace the card.
