Well brightness in general isn't a huge problem, except when it's blinding, like this:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v398/ ... 1f7f74.jpg
Ok, that's an exaggeration and me purposely tricking my camera's light auto-configuration feature, but that's what it FEELS like. The Desktop looks OK (it's actually kinda dark), but anything with a white background just makes my retinas explode. Way too much HDR.
So I tried adjusting the gamma (both hardware and software). By the time the white stopped blinding me, everything else was too dark. I tried to adjust contrast, but then white turned into gray. I can't figure out how to turn down the backlight... in fact, when googling how to do so for this monitor, THIS THREAD is the third item on the list >_<
Unless it isn't labled as such? I found some settings like "Eco" "graphics" "movies" and "user" which seem to do something to the general brightness level. Eco is way too dull, graphics and standard are too bright... Movies is a bit dull, but I guess I can tweak my brightness up a bit to compensate...
Thanks for the tips, regardless! I'm gonna keep an eye on this thread for a couple days just to see if anyone else has any bri-... er, good ideas!
Adjust my settings to a point where the white areas no longer blind me (like this very page, ow!).
Above the title of this message thread, click on "User Control Panel
Click on the "Board preferences
" tab. You will already be on the "Edit global settings
To the right of "My board style:" select the dropdown. Change "tr_prosilver" to "tr_prosilver_blue" (these are the only two options).
Click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page.
Your eyes will thank you.
This is useful, thanks! Unfortunately, unless there's a way to do this for google, youtube, and other pages with a white background, it doesn't help solve the problem completely =(
