Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

When I press the up and down button to adjust the brightness, it only adjusts a little bit. This started when I had the monitor replaced. Is there a fix?


Answers :

Since its a diffrent monitor with diffrent parts, the adjustment may have a higher or lower effect on it. unless its the exact match with the old one then it should work the same as the old one.

My Samsung SyncMaster 2463UW no longer auto detects the video input. I normally use it with my MacBook Pro - I turn it on, it detects the digital output and Bob's your uncle. Today, I turned it on and it continues to cycle through analog, digital and HDMI input sources. However, I can actually see the correct output when it switches to ''digital'' mode - it just won't stay there.
