Question about Toshiba (DA1766M01B) (Black) 17" CRT Monitor
I cannot find a current driver\program for using the "BRIGHTNESS" setting as it is application(computer) controlled and i do not have any way to adjust brightness, because an extra program is needed to controll brightness. the program that i did find was for windows(r) 95... does someone know of any programs (preferably by toshiba) that will adjust the settings thanks in advance signed, north w.
Right-mouse click anywhere on your desktop wallpaper.
Click Monitor, and look for any "settings".
Or, start at http://www.toshiba.com and search for your model-number, and see if any software is available for download.

Tips for a great answer:
Right Click on "My Computer", click "properties", click the "hardware" tab, click "device manager", expand "display adapters", there should be a video car listed, go to "properties", (click the resources tab and see if there is anything in the "conflicting hardware list" at the bottom) to make sure there are no hardware issues" click the "driver" tab and click on "Roll Back Driver" It should prompt you, click Yes/Ok, restart your computer.2) -OR- You need to installed drivers for your monitor to check this,
Right Click on "My Computer", click "properties", click the "hardware" tab, click "device manager", expand the "Monitors" tab, Check to see if your specific monitor manufacturer's name and model are listed. If it just says "Default Moniter", "Default plug and play monitor", or "plug and play moniter" you will need to check the disk that should have come with your monitor, -or- the manufacturer's website. Install those drivers as prompted by the manufacturer.3) -OR- your monitor settings are incorrect, such as your screen resolution is set to something that your monitor does support, or your refresh rate is set out of range of your what your monitor supports.
This fix is quite different depending on your OS, so if its none of the above, please let me know, and I can give more specific advise.4) Also please note, that sometimes, if you install a new video card, drivers are compatible, everything else is correct, but your power supply on your computer is not large enough to support it, your monitor can flicker, cut out, cause your computer to lock and freeze.
Adjust your monitor's brightness and contrast
You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.
To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.)
The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.
Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor.
Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.
Brightness and contrast symbols
On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.
Laptop display. Laptop displays don't have brightness or contrast buttons on the front.
For a majority of laptops, there isn't a control for setting the contrast.
However, you can set the brightness of many laptops by pressing and holding the Fn key, and then pressing a function key to decrease brightness ( ) or increase brightness ( ).
When using Display Color Calibration on a laptop, set the display to the maximum brightness setting.
Adaptive brightness is a feature in Windows that uses a light sensor to automatically adjust the display brightness to match the lighting conditions in your computer's surroundings.
To use adaptive brightness, you must have light sensors installed and enabled on your computer.
To determine if your laptop or computer monitor supports adaptive brightness, look for the Enable adaptive brightness setting in Power Options (mentioned in the following procedure) or check the information that came with your computer.
To turn adaptive brightness on or off
Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.
Under any plan, click Change plan settings.
Click Change advanced power settings.
In the list, expand Display, and then expand Enable adaptive brightness.
To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is running on battery power, click On battery, and then, in the list, click On or Off.
To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is plugged into an outlet, click Plugged in, and then, in the list, click On or Off.
Click Apply. Click OK.
hope this helps
