In the hardware department buy tinted window film for under $5 and cut it to size. The lightest shade is best. Don't peel the back off. Clean the PC screen and apply the film with tape. If you cut it wrong, try again. There's plenty left. Voila! Problem solved for pennies!

I'm not sure what either of those suggestions would have to do with glare on the screen.
Could you try to describe, in detail, what this "glare" is that you are talking about?

    Oh, OK!
    There are only 2 fixes for that, that I know of.
    1. The first it to do things like, change the angle of the light striking the screen. Change the angle of the screen, close curtains so outside light doesn't strike the screen, change the positions of lamps that may be in the room, or change the position of the computer in relation to the lamps. (Not very helpful, I know)
    2. Buy and anti-glare screen and install it on your display. These are thin sheets of plastic that can be cut to fit your display. Clean the surface of the display carefully. Lay the filter on the screen and press into place. That's probably the best fix.
    Unfortunately, there is no way of adjusting this on the pc, itself.

Glare from laptop

LOL, not much you can do about the glare unless you buy some type of cover that goes over the screen.

Have you tried darkening the screen by using your keyboard keys that controls the brightness and darkness? Usually they work in conjunction with the FN function key.

Reflection and glare on a 55'' Mitsubshi projection TV

I have the same problem with my Mitsubishi and the only solution I have come up with is slightly moving the TV's angle so the reflection is not as bad and closing drapes or curtains. Also turn off lamps. This is a poor design but Mitsubishi is not the only TV that has this type of problem. It is something I have become accustomed to and do not notice it as bad since I have moved the TV angle.

Screen is dark and needs to be brighter

look on your keyboard for the key with the 'fn' meaning function and then press the up arrow key on the keyboard. This will make the screen brighter this happens when you are on your battery to save power. You can also do it manually by accident.
