I do not know how to take off the back cover, however. It almost looks as if a special key is needed in the lower left corner of the back cover. Does anyone know how to remove the back cover? Ed

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
