Question about Acer AL1715 (Black, Silver) 17" LCD Monitor
For some reason my monitor is glowing white fuzz over the entire display uniformly. The contrast and brightness are totally screwed up. I can still see the picture although I can barely do so without adjusting the contrast and brightness, and even afterwards the picture still looks like I have battery acid in my eyes. In order to properly read anything or see the mouse and cursor, I have to turn the contrast all the way down and turn up the brightness. I've updated the drivers for my graphics card (raddeon 9550) Tried using the catalyst control center software as well as adobe gamma to adjust gamma levels and brightness and contrast levels, and even tried using powerstrip (software that came with my alienware comp) and it's worthless. I'm assuming it's a hardware issue now for obvious reasons. I've checked the pins in the cable and they're fine. I'm out of warranty too, which is wonderful. So after all of this I'm thinking that my monitor is pretty much done for or that my graphics card is shot. I really don't want to bring it in and pay 100 bucks for someone to tell me to buy a new monitor. Please let me know if there's anything else I can do before I set this thing on fire and desecrate it's remains. Thank you so much.
