Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Where is contrast button/control on my keypad??

\015 I want to calibrate color on my laptop. I am in Adobe Gamma in control panel, which tells me to first adjust contrast. They say to locate a symbol that looks like an eclipse. Cannot find this. I see my brightness (sun symbol) control on the F6 and F7 keys, but where is contrast?\015

Answers :

Hi there.
Is Adobe gamma your graphics provider? In most laptops its either Intel, ATI or Nvidia.
You can set the contrast using your graphics provider utilities software which is usually in the control panel.
Please post back if you need anymore help.

I have a new-to-me Dell LCD monitor, passed on to me by my husband, who has no instructions for it. All my images are printing too dark and with too much contrast, and I am unable to adjust the contrast from the controls at the foot of the screen. When I press the contrast bar I get a screen that shows both brightness and contrast adjustments, but I can only access the brightness control. Are there basic instructions available for how to navigate the adjustment bars? Thanks, Janet
