strange monitor brightness behaviour
Posted on 1998-07-27
I have an Adi MicroScan 5P+ 17" monitor which has an unusual behavior
when I turn the brightness knob towards maximum (which is quite often
necessary). Say, I have a white window which covers the quarter of my
screen. As I maximize this window to fill the entire desktop my monitor's
brightness and contrast immediately drop back thus my screen looks dimmer.
When I shrink this window to the previous (small) size brightness and
contrast restore to original level in a couple of seconds. This phenomenon
gets more and more striking as I increase screen resolution.
There is a Matrox Mystique 220 coupled with the monitor but I've tried
several other cards with no success.
I was told that this behavior is normal at microprocessor-controlled
monitors but I don't think so.
Well, what are your opinions about it ?
Thanx in advance,
