computers not to bright
Posted on 1998-12-25
my display has suddenly became darker. I still get all the colors but it looks like i'm wearing sunglasses. i don't thinks it's the monitor because i have a TV tuner card that completely bypasses the video card and it still looks fine, that could be because i can control the brightness with the software.
i have tried everything in windows 98 i know of such as tinkering with display properties, reinstalling the latest video drivers, reinstalling dx6, updating the cards bios, and reinstalling the card in a new slot.the brightness controls only do so much. i wonder if it has anything to do with the monitors cable in the back, it runs directly into the back and cannot be disconnected. it was loose and causeing the monitor's picture to flutter on the sides if positioned wrong.
changing resolutions and color depth doesn't help.
i was running at 1024x768 32 bit 87i mhz
